Country of origin: Australia Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 43.5% Bottle size: 700ml
Batch #1 - an extremely limited amount was made of batch #1, with only 341 bottles available.
The first release of a barrel-aged gin (Batch #1) using our London Dry Gin carefully aged in small American Oak Barrels, which were once ex-Bourbon, then ex-Tasmanian Whisky . . . the gin is soft and smooth with oaky nuances.
Tasting Notes: Ageing softens the juniper, but seems to lift the other botanicals including the coriander, oris, angelica, and green and brown caradamom. Soft, silky, smooth with subdued oaky nuances.
Kilderkin Distillery: At Kilderkin Distillery our focus is on producing high quality craft spirits. We began by commissioning Peter Bailly, a highly regarded still maker from Knapp Lewer Contracting in Hobart, to manufacture two pot stills to our specifications. The still designs incorporate specific features to ensure we have clean distilled spirits both for gin and for whisky. This means we can live our dream to produce high quality spirits that will be enjoyed by everyone, including those with a preference for drinking their spirits neat, as well as those who like to add their favourite mixers.
(The name for our distillery is from a small oak barrel or cask, traditionally for ale or spirits, of 18 Imperial Gallons which is a metric equivalent of 81.8 litres. We believe that this size barrel will produce mature spirits of exceptional character.)
