Loch Gin Liqueur
Gin is for drinking and mixing, but it’s also for sipping.
Most of us consume it in a cocktail or in the classic G+T, so its flavour is often disguised.
But how about a gin that is designed to be sipped proper-like all by itself?
Well, that’s what the lovely team at Loch Distillery in Gippsland Victoria have done; they’ve produced a Gin Liqueur.
With a fine London Dry style gin under their belts, they’ve come up with this semi-sweet version.
It retains the light spicy nose of its big sister, but is much richer on the palette with a perfect level of sweetness, giving you both a very clean finish and a desire for another sip. This spirit is deceptively simply, but all you need to know is that its simply delicious and would appeal to non-gin drinkers.
So if you love the idea of a gin for dessert, contemplatively in the bath or front of a fire with a good book, then reach out to them for a bottle.
As you sit and read this, there are distillers all around Australia planning big things for your next Martini.
So one of the newest to come along in 2015 hails from a beautiful part of Victoria, South Gippsland, just east of Melbourne, Loch Brewery and Distillery.
Unlike many of the current crop of Australian gins, Loch Distillery’s Craig Johnson and Mel Davies have taken a more classic approach to create an English Dry Gin style rather than emphasising bush native botanicals, but still drawing inspiration from the local region and their garden.
Craig has excellent distilling credentials by virtue of having spent time alongside the legendary Bill Lark from Tasmania.
