Blood Orange and Thyme
700ml | 22 STANDARD DRINKS | 40% ABV | AUSTRALIAN MADE & OWNED
A fresh springtime special, our Blood Orange and Thyme Gin brings the wonderfully sweet and tart flavours of fresh Blood Oranges and a sublime herbaceous Thyme background to a charming symphony of flavour.
Best enjoyed on a sunny spring day's picnic in a bee laden field; this Gin is highly sessionable. Post infusion of whole fresh Blood Oranges impart a charming orange sunset hue and a distinctively refreshing experience. The sweetness of the Blood Orange peaks into a delightful Sherbet-like finish. Juniper and classic Gin botanicals provide an understated and robust profile.
