Pot & Still, South Australian Fig Gin (500ml)
Pot & Still,
South Australian Fig Gin
Famous for his delectable Willabrand Glace Figs, in 2016, Willa Wauchope found himself with a surplus of fig syrup.
At a loss of what to do with the aromatic by-product, he turned to the talented distillers at Applewood.
The organically farmed figs are gently poached and the resulting syrup is then slowly added to a gin base.
Wauchope has since purchased two stills with the intention of creating his own spirits in the future.
Opens with a bouquet of fresh figs and traditional botanicals.
Brief air contact accents hints of lavender, lemon verbena and earthy juniper while the fruit retreats.
Pure and creamy with semi-sweet fig flavours dominating, finishing with delicate peel / herbal freshness.
Skillfully balanced. Try it with a wedge of lime.
