Product Description

78° gin is produced in small batches using Adelaide Hills water and a blend of 12 botanicals, selected specifically for their purity and quality. Never heated about 78.1 degrees (hence the name) the gin is vapour distilled rather than traditionally distilled - this means that the botanicals are placed above the grape spirit and the steam rises up and infuses with them.

This is an aromatic gin with citrus and floral notes with a hint of underlying spice. Best served with a twist of lemon and some peppercorns.
