Seven Seasons Green Ant Gin
70 cl, ABV 42%
Green Ants are added before and after distillation to give this gin a citrusy pop. The addition of Boobialla brings coastal floral notes with a hint of sweetness; Strawberry Gum adds a touch of warm spice on the nose and Lemon Myrtle and Pepper Berry add depth to the base citrus profile.
New life is starting to form on the trees during Windy Season. Leaves are green and big for the ants to make their new nests after old brown leaves were burnt off trees . Wattle blooms, stringrays and cockles are plump and the green bush ants are juicy and prime for harvest.
Using a secret traditional method, ant nest are carefully chilled at a specific temperature so excess worker ants can be carefully removed from the nest. Only worker ants are harvested – we steer clear of breeding times or taking queen ants from their nest, so life is plentiful next season.
Crystal clear. Lemonade gelato and lime juice over piney juniper. Air contact adds hints of white pepper and coriander. Soft, fluffy delivery is almost oily. Bright lemon-lime gelato flavours, mint leaf and warming spices to finish.
