Melbourne Gin Company Dry Gin is a nod to London Dry Gin with the two major components being juniper berries and coriander seed. There are 11 botanicals in total with the grapefruit peel and rosemary coming from the garden at Gembrook Hill Vineyard. The other botanicals are macadamia, sandalwood, honey lemon myrtle and organic navel orange, which are all sourced from Australia. The exotics in the mix are angelica root, orris root and cassia bark.
Each botanical is distilled separately and then blended using a copper pot baine-marie alembic still, traditionally used for making perfume. This allows the delicate nature of the botanicals to be preserved. The final component is pure Gembrook rainwater. The Dry Gin is not chill filtered retaining the oils that contribute so much to the aromatics and mouth feel of the gin.Hand crafted, batch distilled, non chill filtered.
