Yes our gins are vegan friendly, as we use a sugar cane base spirit.
A perfect gin is clear at room temperature and cloudy when cold or when diluted.
This is called louching, where the oil/flavour comes out of solution, and it's a sign there is the maximum amount of flavour in the gin. Cin-cin!
We use a combination of local and imported botanicals in all of our gins.
We use as many NZ-grown botanicals as possible, while also using quality botanicals to ensure our gins are as tasty as possible.
At present we do not forage for any botanicals ourselves. This is a tricky one, because foraging does provide unique flavours and aromas but we haven't found any options that work well in our style of gins yet.
When stored correctly, gin lasts several years.
In short gin should be stored upright in a cool, dark place but see this article for more tips and tricks.
Unfortunately our old bottle supplier stopped making the square bottles, so we couldn't purchase them any more.
We did make the best of a bad situation and upgrade to more premium bottles, which has worked out better overall.
