Hemp Gin is a new premium gin, offering a unique flavour experience. Hemp Gin is proudly Australian made and the first to infuse hemp seeds into a magical combination of botanicals (see below for Hemp Facts & history).
Hemp Gin was born from a university assignment looking at emerging business and industry trends, and one that started to focus on the modern gin renaissance. With a professional licence to experiment with flavours and new ideas, and an academic bent to explore emerging trends, Hemp Gin’s founder, Andrew, started to look not only at gin, but the potential to introduce new flavours.
Hemp, banned in Australia for almost a century until November 2017, was increasingly being touted as another super food due to its nutritionally dense source of protein (better than lentils, tofu, soybean and quinoa); rich polyunsaturated fat content; but most importantly its oils contain the optimal ratio (three to one) of omega-6 to omega-3. Knowing this, Andrew began to research Hemp seeds as a potential gin botanical.
Hemp Gin was born. Hemp magically combines with the other botanicals to produce a savoury gin, with tasting notes that linger on the palate, long after that first crisp sip. Other botanicals include cardamom, coriander, lemon, liquorice and vanilla.
Serving suggestions: In a G&T, add a slice of celery (thanks Lindsay of Down Gin Lane) to freshen it up and complement the savoury hemp notes. Our tonic suggestions are Capi Dry Tonic or Strangelove Light Tonic.
Cocktail suggestions: This Modern Australian Dry gin drinks very well on its own, straight up or in a dirty martini, but also in cocktails such as a Negroni.
ABOUT HEMP GIN GROUP: Owner and Hemp Gin Group founder Andrew has a background in the food industry, specifically in baking; and even more specifically, R&D for new products. Seeds and grains are his forte. Blending them into perfectly balanced flavour combinations is his professional art, in this instance via vapour infusion.
