Vimy Gin combines a traditional juniper, coriander, angelica and ginger base infused with
botanicals: orange zest, cardamom seeds and quandong for an elegant, citrus imbued traditional gin.
Distilled by Kangaroo Island Spirits and produced by Hayward + Park, Vimy Gin celebrates the centenary of the 1919 epic first-ever flight by crew, Sir Ross Smith, Sir Keith Smith, Lieutenants Walter Shiers and James Bennett from England to Australia in under 30 days flying a Vickers Vimy bi-plane G-EAOU which has long been housed at Adelaide Airport.
NOSE: Spicy, warm, gentle orange.
PALATE: Up-front cardamom, sweet with hints of pine and orange sherbet.
BALANCE: Sweet, warm and decidedly smooth collaboration of zest and flavours in harmony. FINISH: Cutting angelica edge and Broken Hill-sourced quandong linger for a memorable finish.
