Details

"Hartshorn is Australia’s smallest distillery, working initially to create 10 bottle batches of supremely-refined-but-delicious vodka, and now gin, from the whey byproduct of their in-house dairy and fromagerie.

 

Each bottle is hand painted by master distiller Ryan Hartshorn, making this already unique product even more special. Ryan and his family run Grandvewe Cheeses, situated in Birchs Bay in Tasmania’s deep south.”

"Besides the juniper, my aim with this Gin was to only use Tasmanian native botanicals. I discovered some very impressive native berries, leaves and seeds however they could only be wild harvested which meant I could not get enough quantity to make it practical enough for an ongoing production. I have still been able to use some Tasmanian native botanicals however I have now broadened the list to only Australian native botanicals (plus the Juniper). I'm using six Native Australian botanicals with three of them never used before in any other Gin.

This product is truly paddock to bottle, exciting those customers who are seeking provenance, sustainable farming and minimisation of food wastage. On another level, it is an elegant superior spirit attracting top tier bars/restaurants as well as discerning customers."
