You like your gins light, fresh and summery because Amberches Spirits Botanical gin ticks all of those boxes!
First up, you will get delicate floral aromas on nosing the gin. Next, you do get plenty of juniper, but notes of fresh green Granny Smith apples come through. On top of all that, there's a hint of elderflower, and it really is a hint. The finish is lengthy and warm, making it lovely contrast to the fresh flavours at the fore.
Made in Western Australia, AmberChes Spirits Botanical Gin is a real family collaboration. But why AmberChes? Because the name itself is part of the pedigree name for the dog Chester, who shares his name with the still. On the human side, youngest daughter Alicia is head distiller with dad Dean also joining in the production line. Meanwhile mum Heather and sister Lauren help manage other aspects of the business.
The Botanical Gin is in fact, AmberChes' flagship gin. First created in 2021, the gin won a gold medal at the Gin Masters in London a month after its launch. Awards aside, this really is a wonderfully refreshing gin to drink.
