Wild Gin

Wild Gin

This small batch Australian Gin is distilled with native ‘Juniper’, foraged from the wild coast of Kangaroo Island. Fashioned in the style of a London Dry Gin this contemporary expression is finished with fresh limes from the nearby Fleurieu Peninsular. Traditional vapour distilling maximizes control of the quality of this award winning Australian spirit and has led to the Gold Medal of the Melbourne International Spirits competition July 2017.
