Our Winter Chamber of Gin Tasting Paddle is here…

Black Sheep Geelong Winter Gin Tasting Paddle

As the weather cools and the seasons change, we’re ready to introduce you to a Seasonal Gin Tasting Paddle experience. Curated by our Black Sheep team, it features our top locally distilled gin picks, with Winter sipping in mind. If you’re a fan of crisp herbaceous flavours, jammy fruit & zesty citrus, then this seasonally inspired Chamber of Gin tasting paddle is sure to provide…

First up is the flagship ‘Dry Gin’ by Queenscliff Distillery. Juniper forward, with coriander and fruity pepper berry delivering a gentle spice, while refreshing fennel balances softer notes of cinnamon, angelica and orange. For a fresh take on a classic Martini, it’s a must try.

Bold & spicy, the ‘Goddess Strength’ from Anther Distillery is next up. Created to celebrate the strength of women across the globe. Perfect for a G&T, the fresh juniper and finger lime are enhanced with aromatic cubeb, sarsaparilla & damiana, while Tasmanian honey & Canadian maple lending a sweet finish.

Following is ‘South East Meets South West’ a contemporary dry style of gin by Great Ocean Road Gin. South East Asian citrus flavours of lime, lemongrass & yuzu are infused with local coastal botanicals such as Kelp, Pig Face and Lemon Gum. The result is refreshing, bright and equally delicious mixed with tonic or shaken into a cocktail.

Inspired by the traditional wine punch of Spain & Portugal, ‘Gin De Sangria’ is next in the line up, from Flowstate Brewers & Distillers. A soft red hue is the resulting union of their award-winning Craft Gin and Shiraz wine lees rested in French Oak, finished with fresh citrus & traditional spices. Light bodied, fruity & perfect for sipping, with a lingering liquorice finish.

To round out the line up, is Trooper & The Roo from The Bellarine Distillery. Named after a legendary chase between the distillers pup Trooper and a local Kangaroo, Trooper & The Roo is a beautifully balanced dessert-style gin. Roasted wattle seed, cacao & almonds lend smooth chocolate notes, brightened with bittersweet grapefruit citrus.
