You like a hint of sweetness in your gin but with a bit of kick.
This is Moontide Distillery's signature gin and their idea of capturing the carefree holiday spirit of Broome in a bottle. To pay homage to the past and present, Moontide's distillers have come up with a blend that includes both native botanicals and some unusual ingredients including....tamarind and mango.
While juniper is still unmistakeable in the taste, you do get a subtle aroma of mango on first nosing the gin. But make no mistake - this is NOT a sweet mango-flavoured concoction. Rather, alongside the pine notes of juniper, the gin has a hint of sweetness from rich fruit flavours that is balanced by bold spice and a bit of heat on the finish. It is a great use of native Australian botanicals such as Kakadu plum, white berry bush and lemon myrtle alongside fruits and spices that were once brought to Broome's shores from seafaring traders, which is where the tamarind and mango comes in.
