AUSTRALIAN INSPIRED FLAVOURS
We love to push the boundaries of distilling and experiment with diverse ingredients and flavour infusions. That’s why we decided to make an Australian inspired gin, using distinctively Australian ingredients like quandong.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A QUANDONG YOU ASK…
Quandong – or “native peach” – is a highly prized Australian fruit used for millennia by traditional custodians of the land as an important food source and medicine. There are three varieties: blue quandong, bitter quandong, and the desert quandong – which is the sweetest (although still not very sweet) of the three and the one we use to make 4pm Gin.
What does it taste like?
Hard to describe and even harder to compare to other fruits. Its flavour varies depending on factors including ripeness and preparation. The white flesh can be quite sour with a tart aftertaste when eaten fresh, while the skin has a slight bitterness. Other descriptions include sour and even slightly salty.
