Henley Green Community Garden Winter Botanicals | Gin
In the spirit of using local ingredients and supporting our local community, Buffalo Vale Distillery and Gladesville Happy Hens have collaborated to create a wonderful limited edition small batch gin using local herbs and citrus from the Henley Green Community Garden.
Combining beautiful traditional citrus flavours with a dash of distinctive botanicals from Henley garden.
Batch 2 - Winter
When tasted side-by-side with batch 1, there are some notable and interesting differences for the collectors. Batch 1 was infused with botanicals picked in late summer, while this new batch draws on pickings from mid-winter. The result is a softer, smoother aroma, with spicy, earthy notes of native mint bush and bay leaf, with some of the citrus and lemon balm evident in batch 1 replaced with the gentler flavours of Lisbon lemon peel and first-growth Shiso leaf tips.
The flavourful gin works equally well with a light tonic water and ice, or in a dry martini. Garnish with a wedge of lime to accentuate the gins’ citrus flavours, or with a sprig of lemon balm to bring out the garden’s natural perfume.
