As of today, WA welcomes a new craft gin designed to capture the spirit of Perth. Aptly named Perth Gin, the spirit incorporates local flavours of the WA region, to reference all of the things that make Perth special.
Michael Hickinbotham of Australian Distilling Co. partnered with close friend and renowned academic Dr Graham Jones, to create a perfectly balanced gin with Western Australian flavours at the centre. Hickinbotham and Jones crafted over 30 recipes in order to find the perfect pairing of botanicals to reflect Perth’s vibrant nature.
The result is a unique botanical signature that's intended to embody the spirit of the city, so you know you’re about to sip on some really delicious stuff. We're not gin experts, but apparently Perth Gin tastes subtly like boronia paired with lingering notes of lemon myrtle, which sounds pretty refreshing. Perfect timing for some summer G&Ts.
Right now, Perth Gin is available online and is stocked at a few locations across the city, with more to come.
