Based in the Hobart suburb of Moonah, the distillery is run by owners Natalie Smith and Ben Taylor, who’ve been distilling out of a converted shed on their property since 2017.

 

For this first release, spirit was initially filled into barrel in March 2018. Following that, Natalie and Ben performed a number of gin trials and experiments over several months (often testing them on lucky neighbours) to settle on a precise mix of botanicals and techniques to create their award-winning Taylor & Smith Gin.

 

Only 40 bottles available for this batch.

 

Tasting Notes

Nose: Beautiful soft, sweet honey and ripe mandarin orange aroma, with cooling eucalyptic nosefeel.

Taste: Creamy mouthfeel, butterscotch, shaved wood, orange zest, well balanced between sweetness and spiciness, fresh aroma of grape spirit, leaving long cool sensation aftertaste.
