WILD PLUM GIN
Our take on Flavored Gins
The Wild Plum is our native twist on the popular Sloe Gin style.
The Name comes from the use of two different plums, the Native Australian Davidson Plum and Tasmanian Sloe Berries, which are technically plums. The gins big flavor come from the combination of these two fruit.
We first built a completely new gin. With the knowledge that this gin was eventually going to be flavored we wanted to built a gin that earthy and warm.
Starting with a sound base of Juniper, Liquorice root and Angelica Root we add Native Australian Anise Myrtle and Orange Peel. This be Anise and Orange combination gives the gin a great warmth.
After we made the gin we infused it with Australian Davidson Plum and Tasmanian Sloe Berries. The Davidson plums bring a beautiful sour stone fruit note, while the sloe berries fortify the fruit flavor with stewed fruit character.
We allow the fruit to steep for 3 months, enough time to extract the beautiful fresh flavours, but not long enough to lead to those astringent notes.
To finish we lightly sweeten the gin with Wildflower honey from the Swan Valley to lift the fruit characters and give it some sweetness.
Strong citrus notes balanced against the warm sweetness of the Banksia honey and sloe plums and a tart, dry finish from the Australian native Davidson plums make for a highly versatile plum gin.
CLASSIC SERVE FOR THE WILD PLUM
This is an ideal sipping gin, serve Neat on the rocks or a dash of soda to open the Wild Plum further.
Charlie Chaplin – The plum notes work perfectly with the apricot brandy in this sweet and sour classic.
Wild Plum Spritz – A simple twist on the aperol spritz, with an addition of some honey syrup really makes for a great summer drink.
