And so it beGINS..
For me the journey to gin (seriously journey what is this self help) was a long one.
I refused to drink it for a long time, the few times I had drunk it I ended up in tears, now I don't know if it was just cheap gin or my emotional state (two times were years apart though), but as my access to gin got easier, ie. it is everywhere and the lure of Four Pillars Gin Distillery close to our previous home, the draw to try it again was too great.
So from a reformed non-gin drinker start with these:
Four Pillars Gin - these guys Stu and Cam are totally fun, love gin and make good gin to, winning combo, head to Healesville to try them in house, properly and with friendly serve.
Never Never Gin - which is one of the Top Australian gins winning awards
LOBO Djinn - Gin - this one is amazing, distilled with quince, one of my fav fruits ever. I tried this with heritage sliced apple they grow, along with a slice of pear.
Kis - Kangaroo Island Spirits - amazing smooth flavour.
Applewood Distillery - also SA, I didn't realise this was also a SA distillery.
The Melbourne Gin Company
I have curated a page on Pinterest here.
I will continue to update this as I try more!
