You'll like this if:
You like your gins juniper forward with a floral yet herbaceous lift and slight peppery finish.
The botanicals in this gin have been chosen to reflect the heritage of Ben, Alarna and Cory, the trio behind Tara. There's a core blend of botanicals sourced from around Shoalhaven in NSW where the distillery is based - alongside the more traditional juniper, coriander seed and angelica. you'll also find local Australian pepperberry leaf, locally-foraged sea lettuce, native lemon myrtle, and macadamia. On top of these, the Irish rowan berry, hawthorn and heather were chosen as a nod to Ben and Alarna's connection to Ireland, whilst the Newfoundland savoury a nod to Cory, who hails from that region.
It might seem like there's a lot going on there, but the end result as Caroline describes it is "a juniper forward gin that is beautifully soft with rich herbaceous flavours and a lingering peppery finish." There's a wonderful floral top note to all those herbaceous flavours so if you're normally a fan of floral gins, you should also give this a go.
