Applewood 'Seven Deadly Gins' Pt.4 Gin of Sloth

Adelaide Hills, SA

The laziest Gin the Carters have made. They totally forgot about this Gin... Twice!



About The Gin

From the distillers, Brendan and Laura Carter:

As Summer quickly envelopes us all at Applewood HQ - we start dreaming of lazy days, chilling by the river - cranking some tunes and throwing something on the BBQ...for our next Gin we wanted to capture that 'no worries mate' attitude - a little bit of the 'ol 'she'll be right, we'll fix it tomorrow' perspective.

Introducing: Gin of Sloth

We're no strangers to bathtub-style Gin production and this seemed the perfect project to stretch our creative muscles on...and little did we know, it's bloody hard to make a lazy gin! The concept was sound, a basic Gin recipe of Juniper, Adelaide Hills Saffron, Cinnamon, Star Anise, Clove, Chamomile, Wormwood, Licorice Root, Angelica Root and Orange Peel - and the creativity? We weren't going to bother distilling it...

But then the real Sloth kicked in...we accidentally forgot about it (no joke). A week later, the resultant Gin was so incredibly intense and bitter - we were to scared to bottle it. One bright spark suggested we just see how it distills...and it filled the room with the most spicy, aromatic was a sight to behold. We really wanted this Gin to champion Juniper, so we macerated some more post-distillation...Then we accidentally forgot about it again! Sloth-strikes-back!

Upon finding the golden-wonder of a Gin (courtesy of Juniper swimming in it for days)...we were utterly impressed by the distinctive aroma, mouthfeel and texture. Further - it made one of the most delicious G&Ts we've ever experienced!

Sunny days by the River? I'll take two.
