A symphony between fourteen hand selected ingredients and our Myrcene Hemp extract, gives rise to this expressive New World Gin.
Batch distilled with timeless classics, Juniper, Orris and Angelica Root, this remarkably aromatic and rich local Gin unashamedly boasts a bold and memorable character.
Botanicals; Lavender, Rosemary and Sage synchronise flawlessly with notes of Hemp extracted Myrcene delivering a full bodied Gin with a magnificent mouthfeel.
The Myrcene is delighting on the nose and delicate on the pallet, proving a sensational pair on ice with a premium tonic, garnished with fresh Orange or Rosemary and in any citrus forward cocktail.

The World's First Cannabis-infused Gin Distilled With Terpenes
Like Melbourne, The Myrcene contains the perfect balance of the earthy and the fruity. That’s why we selected it as the backbone of our Hemp Gin, granting the name pride-of-place on our initial foray into the spirit world. Myrcene is the most abundant terpene found in cannabis, terpenes being the primary constituents of the essential oils in many types of medicinal plants and flowers.
Bubblegum aromas blend with lavender, pine forest and sage. Soft tones of violet interact on the palate with woodland flavours of rosemary and resin, cloves and woody spices. With a long complex finish and a rich mouthfeel, The Myrcene is perfect paired with a premium tonic. Try it poured over a wedge of lemon with a sprig of fresh rosemary to really bring out those piney aromas.
Small-batch crafted in Healesville, this complex award-winning gin represents the marriage of past and future. The world’s first hemp-infused gin distilled with terpenes – The Myrcene.
One bottle contains 700ml of gin.

Myrcene is known to compose up to 50% of the total Terpene content found in individual strains of Cannabis and is perhaps the most highly-valued Terpene due to its promising research in the treatment of chronic pain and inflammation.
A growing body of evidence suggests that when taken medicinally, Myrcene provides anti-bacterial, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-insomniatic, anti-proliferative, antipsychotic, and antispasmodic effects. Cannabinoids have also been demonstrated to absorb more efficiently into the blood brain barrier when Terpenes are present, allowing them to bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
Although further research is needed, early literature indicates that Myrcene may even reduce the spread of cancer cells, especially when paired with CBD, which naturally suppresses the proliferation of excessive cells and helps reduce the size of tumours.
Although we welcome the presence of Myrcene and Juniper within his carefully crafted bright and aromatic Gin, the Myrcene Hemp Gin is not intended to be or consumed as a medicinal product.
