Crafted in Wellington and inspired by the coast, Southward Distilling is proving to be a rising star in New Zealand's booming world of spirits.
This is a deliciously savoury gin, that is full of smoke and no mirrors. The rosemary is sweet to start with, followed by an incredible lingering smokiness. Pairs wonderfully with citrus based mixers, but is an exceptional treat with ginger-ale. If more intricate cocktail making's your thing, then I'm sure you'll see - there's a lot to get inspired by with this bottle.
The distillery writes "There is a sweatshirt on your floor that you wore at the bonfire the night before. It reeks of smoke and stories. You threw pinecones and rosemary in the fire and ate lamb with your fingers."
