You'll like this gin if:
You're a fan of bittersweet chocolate. 78 Degrees Chocolate Gin is still very much a gin but with subtle notes of dark chocolate.
The limited edition gin is a collaboration between Adelaide Hills Distillery and Melbourned based chocolate maker Loving Earth. Firstly, the distillery uses leftover cacao husks from Loving Earth’s chocolate making process. Then, it steeps them in its base gin alongside native wattleseed and local oranges.
The result? A rich and smooth gin that gives you hints of dark chocolate and orange. But lest you think of the 78 Degrees Chocolate Gin as a chocolate liqueur, that it is not. That's because at 42% ABV, this is very much a gin.
The rich familiar notes of chocolate will hit you at first blush. However, at first sip, the familiar piney taste of juniper comes across before you finish a dark chocolate at the back and hints of orange. If you're getting nutty flavours, that would be courtesy of the toasted wattleseed. All in all, it's a very well balanced gin.
