With the West Winds Wild Plum Gin 2019 vintage a sell-out, it’s clear Australia’s love affair with gin is far from over. In fact, the award-winning distillery has brought forward the date for its 2020 release. Hallelujah! 

Located in the gorgeous Margaret River region in Western Australia, the distillery uses native Davidson plums and Tasmanian sloe berries to create this very popular drop.

This particular gin scooped five gold medals at the 2020 International Wine & Spirits Competition; the World Gin Masters 2020; the World Gin Awards 2020; the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 as well as the Australian Gin Awards in November 2019, making it unequivocally Australia’s most awarded flavoured gin.

If you love a gin with tart plum, zesty citrus and warm sweetness, then this is definitely the gin for you. In addition to the tart finish from the Davidson plums, you’ll discover a cosy sweetness thanks to banksia honey and the sloe berries, all perfectly balanced out with robust citrus notes.

Established in 2010, The West Winds gin distillery is a true pioneer in Australian craft spirit production. Always pushing the boundaries, the distillery places an emphasis on product development and innovation.

But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s a delicious cocktail recipe to get you started.
