The Barossa Valley, the heartland of Australian wine for nearly two centuries, has a rich history of spirits distillation, a fact often forgotten.
Barossa Distilling Company (BDC) released Generations Gin in 2016 and in doing so reignited the journey to once again put Barossa on the map as a region producing exceptional craft spirits.
The beauty of gin is there is a wide spectrum of seasonal botanicals to choose from to make different styles. It’s a learning experience and at Barossa Distilling we are building our knowledge one glass at a time. We are always experimenting and if it meets the grade we will release it.
A creative infusion of 12 botanicals, distilled with premium quality Barossa grape spirit, delivering a unique flavour profile that captures the essence of Barossa in every bottle. Citrus forward, smooth and easy drinking. Our Botanicals include Juniper, Coriander, Lavender, Chamomile, Almonds, Angelica and in a nod to the prominence of Barossa as a world-renowned wine region, we are the first to use high toast French Oak chips in the distillation of our Gin. A Gin that is quintessentially Barossa.
While Generations Gin is the year-round mainstay of the BDC range, our seasonal gins are also making quite a name for themselves. Our Spring / Summer gin Budburst has almost created a category of its own. Delicate and fruit-forward, coloured with a pink blush, blended with a local White Frontignac wine and garnished with strawberries; it’s a much Summer as a trip to the beach.
Barrel Aged Gin (Limited Edition)
Rich notes of caramel and butterscotch. We can wait to see it return later in the year, once the current batches have had the chance to mature in their local ex Tawny barrels.
Flavour and provenance are driving the Gin revolution. Consumers are clamouring for authenticity and flavour, something we have in spades here in the Barossa.
Barossa Shiraz Gin (Limited Edition)
Here for a good time, not a long time, our Vintage 2019 Barossa Shiraz Gin sold out very quickly. But don’t worry our 2020 Barossa Shiraz is on it’s way!
Barossa Shiraz Gin is the delectable marriage of premium Barossa Shiraz grapes and our award-winning Generations Gin. The Shiraz fruit, freshly picked from a vineyard on the iconic Krondorf Road, has been slowly macerated in the Gin, allowing the beautiful colour and deep rich flavours to infuse and develop. The result; a gin that is truly the Spirit of Barossa.
