About the Gift
These three Aussie made spirits are the perfect ingredients for an all Australian negroni.
The Classic vermouth of MAiDENii, the epic and wild Økar amaro from Applewood and the Spiced Negroni Gin from one of the leading Australian spirit houses, Four Pillars.
It's everything you need to get your negroni on!
MAiDENii Sweet Vermouth
The love of a great Negroni is the inspiration behind this sweeter iteration of Vermouth from Gilles and Shaun at Maidenii in Victoria.
This is made from premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, picked at peak ripeness, then fortified and aromatized with a combination of the Maidenii staple botanicals plus the addition of grapefruit, mace and angelica root.
The idea here is that the Vermouth should be a supporting ingredient in a Negroni, not overpowering.
It's sweet and deliciously herbal all at once. The Maidenii Sweet does the job perfectly.Read more about MAiDENii Sweet Vermouth
Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin
To make the perfect Negroni, you need the perfect Negroni Gin.
An inspired collaboration between Four Pillars and one of the World's Best Bartenders lead to this cheeky, spiced up Gin, designed specifically for some serious Negroni action.
Blood orange, fresh ginger, and a souped-up level of the standard Four Pillars pepperberry leaf and cinnamon make this a heady, spicy, hyper-aromatic weapon of a Gin which is primed for your next Saturday night.
Tumblers and ice at the ready.Read more about Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin
Applewood Okar Amaro 750ml
Brendan and Laura Carter's obsession with distilling, in a very literal sense, their love for this great sun-drenched land into beverage form seems to know no bounds.
Here is their take on a bitter aperitif (ala Campari or Aperol) forged from Riberries, the fruits of the Lilly Pilly plant and infused with native bush herbs.
It's an essential ingredient in their plan to create an all Australian Negroni.
This, a splash of Aussie made Prosecco, a dash of soda and a slice of orange, and you've got yourself an Australian Summer in a glass.Read more about Applewood Okar Amaro 750ml
