A century ago, spices were exotic, precious, and rare. Like gold, they were so valuable that only the wealthy could afford to access them. With no less than 19 spices expertly blended and balanced, this internationally awarded Awildian Spiced Gin would have been worth its weight in gold a century ago!  

With pepper, cardamom, nutmeg, grains of paradise and more this is an elegant spiced Gin in a London Dry Style that honours tradition while being contemporary and spice-forward. 

This special drop begins its journey with a 16 hour maceration process in premium sugarcane alcohol with 23 botanicals, including juniper, aniseed, blueberry, chamomile, two citrus varieties and more, followed by an extremely gentle distillation process using waters from the Coromandel Ranges. With a 3-week maturation before a final reduction to a bottled strength of 47% ABV, it’s no wonder this gin has won the coveted Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits awards.
