Garden Grown Gin teams up with the Australian Botanic Garden to distil the most Australian gin

Grown gin 1

Garden Grown Gin – formerly Distillery Botanica – has partnered with the Australian Botanic Garden in Mount Annan to develop a limited-edition ‘Botanic Garden Grown Gin’.

Working alongside long-term collaborator and master distiller Peter Moore as well as the Garden’s curator manager John Siemon, Garden Grown Gin allows you to experience a new facet of the Garden; taste. The team selected native botanicals from the Australian Botanic Garden, including Ginger Rhizome, Mount White Lime, Orange Berry, Wombat Berry, Macadamia, and Bunya Nut Pine, to compose a rare spirit which captures the essence of Australian biodiversity.

Botanic Garden Grown Gin is packaged in the iconic minimalistic bottle characteristic of Garden Grown Gin (and Distillery Botanica), for a limited release of 1000 bottles. Working to promote and support conservation efforts at the Garden, the proceeds from sales of the limited-edition gin will be put towards the Australian Botanic Garden’s conservation initiatives which preserve Australia’s biodiversity through seed collection, seed banking, and conservation research and training. The collaboration coincides with the Garden’s 30th birthday.

The Botanic Garden Grown Gin has strong notes of orange and lime, with the botanicals providing an added depth of flavour, including the ginger which lends a tingling feeling to the tongue.

“No plants, no future. Which also means no gin,” Garden Grown’s Will Miles said of the Australian Botanic Garden’s mantra, going on to state that “since profits from each bottle purchased go directly back to the Garden’s vital initiatives, we’re honoured to collaborate for the second year and support a project with such commitment to Australia’s conservation.”

We’ll drink to that!

Botanic Garden Grown Gin is available for$129 from Garden Grown Gin and select retailers nationwide.
