GOLD MEDAL | 2nd overall | DISH MAG GIN PANEL
A premium offering from the Hawkes Bay based Gin Distiller's everyone is buzzing about. Hastings Distillers is New Zealand’s first producer of 100% certified organic artisan spirits and liqueurs. They've combined decades long backgrounds in winemaking and a passion for botanicals and spirits to produce some of the best quality gins and liqueurs in our beautiful country.
The Albertine is a complex and gorgeously perfumed Gin, containing a whopping 38 organic botanicals. It is batch distilled in a 150L Arnold Holstein still and then cut to strength with Kaweka spring water.
With top notes of lime leaf, white currant, cedar, mango and floral hints. Exotic spice brings warmth and persistence to the palate. This makes for a perfect and exotic Gin and Tonic, but can also be enjoyed over ice as a sipping Gin. Though as many great bars are learning around the country, this will take any great gin cocktail to another dimension!
Dish Tasting Panel writes: Albertine is created using 38 exotic botanicals, including rare peppers sourced from friends in France who supply herbs and spices to Michelin-starred restaurants. “A jaw-droppingly lovely mid-palate and an impressive merging and balance of botanicals and alcohol,” said Yvonne. Tash and Cameron praised its minerality, citrus, pepper and jalapeño notes.
