Cherry Gin: Larrikin does it again with its Aussie inspired tipples

Cherry Lush Larrikin gin 1

Dark cherries and gin – not the most conventional of combos, but damn, does it work or what? Larrikin Gin – the Australian-inspired gin with the nametag to prove it – have just gone out to the world with a gin, jammed with morello cherries and a whole unique take on drinking. The ruby red gin – called Cherry Lush – has been bottled at 28%, delivering a smooth finish that is set to infuse all your senses with initial cherry sweetness followed by hints of tartness from the morellos. Whilst bold in flavour, ‘Cherry Lush’ can be enjoyed either straight or mixed, serving as the perfect addition to your favourite fruit cocktails. Right in the middle of an Australian winter, this cherry-packed, wintry-inspired alcohol is perfect for while you’re perched fireside, or on top of a heating duct, warming you from the inside-out with the touch of gin and the warmth of dry tartness. Score a bottle from Larrikin Gin or at selected on premise outlets for $85.

A land of sweeping plains: Larrikin Gin’s new batch, Sunburnt Country

Larriking gin Sunburnt

It was Dorothea Mackellar who penned the poem, My Country in 1987, with the famed stanza, “I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains, of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains,” but it was Larrikin Gin in 2019, who put a flavour to the sentiment. The new Aussie gin includes ten native Australian botanicals, giving this smooth and strong gin a complex and totally unique Australian flavour you can only find here. They really threw the net far and wide when creating the palette of the new Sunburnt Country gin. On a journey of discovery from the Kakadu Plum of the Northern Territories to Strawberry Gum from the Northern Tablelands of NSW, Larrikin gin really shines a light on Australia as one of not only the oldest original lands on our planet, but one with the most home-grown diversity and an undeniably Aussie spirit. The gin is strong at 50.7%, but keeps a nice smooth finish that can be enjoyed straight with some ice on a hot Australian day, or is refreshingly perfect with tonic water. Other botanicals they’ve used that need to be tried to be believed are the likes of Roast Wattleseed, Lemon Myrtle, Lemon Aspen, Kakadu Plum, Native Blood Lime, Desert Lime, Bush Tomato, Strawberry Gum, Davidson’s Plum and Finger Lime. But, there’s only really one way to find out yourself if it’s for you: Sunburnt Country will be available from March online or at selected on premise outlets for $100.
