Baker Williams Mudgee Shiraz Gin
For the second time we've been able to shoehorn a small parcel of Shiraz from our fabulous neighbour Mark, (remarkable given that it is usually reserved for one of Mudgee's finest wines) This special shiraz provides a delectably rich base for our second release of Shiraz Gin.
Spicy, brilliantly hued spheres of shiraz were macerated in an epically spice driven gin spirit & left to infuse. The inherent spice in the shiraz has been well supported by soaking in a highly spiced gin – lots of angelica & cassia, pepperberry & cardamom as well as a good dose of juniper & coriander.
The vibrant purple of the grapes has been beautifully transferred from skin to gin over a month or so. The delightful baubles of gin soaked shiraz were then determinedly basket pressed to coax their charge & what evolved is now in this bottle.
