“A long-standing dream comes to life with the release of our second gin. Through a finely wrought blend of Australian native botanicals with the cannabis terpene Limonene, we seek to capture the flavour of our deep, complex and conflicted emotions about this beautiful country.
Both aroma and taste are super fresh. On the nose, an aura of the Kimberley’s Twin Lakes region comes to mind, scents of jilungin and wild lemongrass bringing forth a refreshing coolness reminiscent of a wetlands breeze on a hot summer’s day. Citrus elements of finger lime intertwine with cinnamon myrtle, while a heavy dose of juniper and coriander keep the spirit firmly entrenched in the tradition of a truly classic gin.
On the palate, exotic notes of spice interact with a deep earthiness. Hemp’s naturally nutty flavour interacts with native botanicals to bestow an almost hazelnut quality upon the gin, brightening up a rich fullness to the mouth feel. Add tonic to your glass and experience the uniquely colourful bouquet of Native Australian wildness.
50% of profits from the first release of this gin will go towards education around traditional land management techniques in the Kimberley.
In studies by The University of Queensland, Jilungin has been demonstrated to contain over 30% more antioxidants than Green Tea, and furthermore has demonstrated anti-anxiety properties which are the subject of ongoing research. Griffith University in New South Wales has confirmed that Native Wild Lemongrass is comparable to aspirin in its effectiveness at treating headaches and inflammation. Limonene is reputed to aid with anxiety, depression and provide stress relief, while digestive issues may be improved through limonene’s potent antibacterial and antifungal effects. It also boasts powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.”
