You'll like this gin if:
You're a fan of the sweet tart flavours of blueberries. The Big Tree Blueberry Thrill Gin does what it say on the tin. (And does it well).
Ever had that fresh burst of a blueberry in your mouth? Then you'll know what we mean when we say it can be difficult to replicate that flavour in a gin without it feeling synthetic.
Big Tree Distillery was founded and is helmed by husband and wife team Catherine and Gary. They love good gin so much, they decided to make their own. But not just any gin, an Australian home-grown farm crafted gin. And this Blueberry Thrill Gin is an good example of their ethos of supporting local growers where they don't grow any ingredients themselves.
A seasonal release, Catherine and Gary make this gin in small batches once a year in summer. Their local blueberry farmer brings them the blueberries each week during the season. Handpicked fresh off the bush, the berries actually give the gin its blushing pink hue. With the addition of a touch of sugar to balance any tartness, the gin has a slight sweetness on the palate and on the finish.
