Distillers Cut London Dry Gin
This is our Australian representation of a London Dry Gin. This gin consists of native or locally grown ingredients such as bush lemons, wild aniseed, home grown coriander, wild lavender and Tasmanian pepper berry. The aroma of the juniper and citrus are ever present on the fore, followed closely by subtle berry notes. The flavour is a robust dry style gin with citrus and a touch of herbal influence. This is finished by a slow, slight paprika heat, given by the pepper berry. Though we do use Australian botanicals in this gin, we have balanced it I such a way to create an obviously London dry style.
We recommend this gin served with a light tonic (or half tonic half soda) and garnished with a sweet citrus i.e. pink grapefruit or blood orange.
About Tattarang Springs
We are an independent, small batch, grain based distillery with a “gastronomical gin” vision.
We are situated in Karrakup (meaning black cockatoo in the local Noongar dialect) in the shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, Western Australia. We have a 120 acre property surrounded by the state forest. We have our own dams filled all year round by underground springs which provide the water for not only the distillery itself but the orchards that grow our botanicals also.
We forage for or grow the bulk of the botanicals that go into our gins and we only use West Australian barley for both our gin and our vodka.
Our ethos is to create a grain to glass product that showcases the wonders that grow in our states backyard. We have been called a “bush tucker inspired distillery” though we do still use a few purchased ingredients (native pepper berry and Juniper) due to the location and quarantine laws of WA.
Our chef analyses the gastronomical profiles of all botanicals in our products and works with our distiller to create the recipes for our unique spirits with a balanced flavour and aroma.
Our 3 founders are:-
Our Chef, with high end international experience who has worked alongside the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal.
Our Brewer/Distiller, with award winning beers and spirits under his belt and a passion for all things Australiana.
Our Horticulturalist, the guru of all things that we cultivate or forage for. (this being a part of the ethos)
We are very traditional in our spirit creation we do not use any sugars or buy in pharmaceutical alcohol. We only make a 500ltr grain wash per batch. This equates to 100-150 bottles per batch.
