Country Of Origin Australia
The world has gone mad for gin and Australia is no different.
New distilleries are opening at such an astounding rate that no one has published a comprehensive book about Australian Gin, until now. Australian Gin explores in depth, the definition of gin, the history of Australian gin, descriptions of different gin styles, distilling from an insider’s view and most importantly, how to enjoy gin and support Australian distillers and their efforts to bring to us the fruits of their passion. Our new Australian distillers are leading the world as they experiment with complex flavours, ageing, and hybrid styles like shiraz gin and green ant gin. Global awards are being won.
In Australian Gin, David Box and contributors including Jon Lark (KI Spirits), Dave Irwin and Matt Argus (Patient Wolf), Cameron Mackenzie (Four Pillars) and Phillip Jones (The Martini Whisperer) open up the world of Aussie gin. You’ll find detailed information on 80 distilleries that started the current gin craze; the people, the gins, their cellar doors and much more. There is also a list of dozens of newcomers. All for less than a bottle of craft gin.
Australian Gin covers such subjects such as:
About Gintonica: The Gintonica story is simple – the team are lovers of gin! David Box is the man behind Gintonica and has dedicated himself to becoming the gin envoy of the Australian distilling movement. His love of gin started with his sundowner ritual of a G&T, and he soon found himself seeking out micro and regional distilleries to learn about their hand-crafted production and centuries old traditions.
After a short period of time, Misty White joined the team and together they have a vision to transform Gintonica into a central resource for everything gin, from botanicals to recipes, pairings to makers, and everything in between. Gintonica was launched and curates Australian Craft Gins in 50ml bottles, gift packs and our the infamous Aussie Gin Advent Calendar.
Gin boasts a rich history across the UK and Europe, and we are loving how Australian artisan producers are putting a unique twist on this classic spirit.
There are now more than 150 gin distilleries in Australia and these creative folks are pushing the gin flavour boundaries with the introduction of native plants and herbs such as lemon myrtle, finger limes, eucalyptus, strawberry gum, wattleseed, and so much more.
