In the same way as the Three Wise Men who brought three gifts to the manger (gold, frankincense and myrrh), you can be equally as wise and bring three gifts of Gin to Christmas.
Yes, four different Australian distilleries are showing that three is the magic number when it comes to giving Gin this season.
Spoilt for choice, Manly Spirts is offering their trio pack of 200ml bottles of Manly Spirits delicious Gins, including
Double Gold winning Australian Dry Gin – made with a wheat spirit base, this Gin blends ten carefully-considered sustainably foraged marine, Australian native and traditional botanicals. distilled into a pure Australian wheat spirit. The bright, fresh flavours of the citrus, marine & juniper give way to the gentle peppery notes on the palate to deliver a complex lingering finish.
Coastal Citrus Gin – with all the taste of summer on the beaches in a bottle, this Gin takes inspiration from the Australian Coast and its native pantry. Earthy citrus notes from Lemon Aspen partner with exotic Meyer Lemon to a give a punchy citrus hit which is offset by the delicate savour flavour from local Sea Parsley and Fresh Coriander leaf.
Barrel Aged Gin (Whisky 02) – if you are looking for a taste that is beautiful but complex then this Gin combines the best of Gin with the feel of Whisky. Aged in Bourbon and Single Malt whisky barrels for 7 months then blended with a splash of our own french cask maturing whisky added, this Gin will be savoured to the last drop.
