The HM No 2 Woodcutter gin has a distinct flavour that is like nothing you’ve tasted before. We developed this gin by experimenting with not only the botanicals we use but also the way in which we make gin.
For the base of the Woodcutter we use the highest purity alcohol available in Australia and Juniper berries sourced from Hungary. We further add coriander, coconut sugar and finely cut locally grown lemon myrtle to the mix. The botanical basket is filled with fresh lemons and limes which infuse the gin vapours. The resultant concentrated gin has a full citrus taste and is distilled with an average alcohol by volume (ABV) of 79%.
The gin is then stored in stainless-steel tanks. French oak spirals are added giving the Woodcutter gin its natural honey colour. The oak further balances the botanical flavours for a richly smooth finish that is delicious to taste. After some time on oak, the gin is then diluted to 43% ABV, bottled and packed ready to enjoy.
This gin is one that stands on its own. We recommend pairing our Woodcutter gin with ginger ale, ice and fresh orange or lime to create a refreshing cocktail. Alternately try it neat over ice to really experience of the flavours of the Woodcutter.
