The spirit and the botanicals are distilled together in a 400-litre copper pot still, Essie, handmade by Ben. This gives the gin a really soft sensation when drinking and makes for a delicious G&T or cocktail.
Taylor and Smith's design and packaging draw on these unique qualities, reflect their heritage—the names Taylor and Smith—are very much based in ideas or processes that are handmade. You can take a lot of pride in things when you do them yourself.
About Taylor & Smith Distilling Co.: Taylor & Smith is an independent artisan distillery in Hobart owned and run by Natalie and Ben. They experiment with Tasmanian botanicals and carefully craft their base spirits to synthesise the Tasmanian landscape and write out the stories of place.
The scale of the season is compressed in Tasmania so you get an intensity of flavour in local botanicals. The air is phenomenal and the water that feeds directly to the distillery comes from a lake of snow melt at Mount Field National Park.
When Taylor & Smith first started making spirits they'd take around little jam jars of gin and leave them on our neighbours doorstep. People would turn up on a Friday night home from work and find a jar of gin. In reciprocation they would turn up with lemons, quinces, cumquats or other botanicals they were hoping would feed back into the gin. Along with experimentation, another defining characteristic of the Taylor & Smith process is their focus on the handmade. They don't have any automated systems. It's come from the heart. Taylor & Smith love to bring people together through our spirits, and small things that are beautiful in the right place can enhance a moment.
