  • Sheep Whey Gin (700mL)
  • 4 Riedel Gin Society G&T glasses
  • Copper jigger, bar spoon & strainer
  • Worth $227.95

GIN SOCIETY TASTING NOTES

Nose: Hartshorn Distillery's Sheep Whey Gin is a soft and delicate gin with hints of sweet buttermilk and citrus, which reminds me of lemon cheesecake. Beyond that, the aromas of rose petal and fresh straw can be found.

Palate: Wattleseed and anise are the first flavours I taste, then there is a heat, perhaps from the slightly higher alcohol beverage volume (ABV) or is it the native pepper berry? The amazing mouth-coating effect this gin has is like nothings I've ever come across before, probably because this is the first whey product of it's kind. Beautiful!

Note: If you 're going to mix this please don't add tonic, as this soft and delicate gin would be lost. If you are going to mix it I would suggest soda or just drinking it over ice.
