While COVID wasn't great for anyone, some businesses really made the most of WA's lockdown and Old Young's distillery in the Swan Valley did just that by doubling down on their gin production. With all that extra time up their sleeve, they made way more gin than usual and, to keep things interesting, they decided to whip up some crazy flavours.
While they weren't able to open for tastings during the time, they dreamed up a new idea that we like even more. The Juniper Society is a gin subscription which owner and founder James Young is calling "Netflix, but gin".
Starting this September, they'll be releasing one delicious, limited-edition, never-to-be-repeated gin which is exclusive to The Juniper Society members. Flavours are set to be a surprise, though they've given us a sneak peek at the first bottle. Named F*CK COVID, this strong 60% gin has big flavours like pepper, honey and a touch of ginseng.
Sign up for a one bottle membership for $59 or two bottles a month for $118 and have these beauties delivered to your door. Oh, and if you sign up by Monday 31 August, you'll be a Foundation Member which comes up with all sorts of bragging rights.
