Twenty Third Street Distillery has launched a new gin flavour in time for the winter season, Mulberry Gin.
The South Australia-based company has combined local mulberries and orange zest from the Riverland to create a gin that brand manager Amelia Wright says has a lingering herbal and peppery complexity, lifted with juniper and citrus.
“Ripe mulberries are so delicate and susceptible to crushing that we had to be incredibly delicate when harvesting them. We steep the berries in juniper and orange zest before basket pressing to extract the best essences from the mix,” Wright said.
The Mulberry Gin bottles feature artwork by Adelaide-born and raised self-taught artist Lena Baumgartner, who works feature in the image above.
Initially on sale through the distillery in Renmark, it will be stocked nationwide at First Choice Liquor Market and Liquorland stores from next month.
