The Med Gin is the most recent release from the guys out at Never Never Distilling Co as part of their limited release Dark Series range. Savoury gins are a bit of a minority in the gin market, however there might be an emerging trend here, with another big name gin producer from across the border releasing an olive leaf-inspired variety recently (no I won’t say who – this is a South Aussie website after all!).

In making the Med Gin, Never Never partnered up with local growers of olives, almonds, oranges and herbs to celebrate flavours from McLaren Vale. When you open the bottle, straight away you get a pleasant whiff of salty sea breeze and light olive aromas, muddled with citrus notes and a hint of bay leaf and thyme.

This gin is almost buttery on the palate, and the aforementioned briny flavours come through first. I should qualify that point and note it’s not ‘smashed-by-a-wave-at-Moana-Beach’ salty, but rather a pleasant level of brininess, balanced by the citrus flavours and standard juniper base. The lemon thyme and bay leaf add further complexity, coming through at the end to round things out.

I’m not sure if it’s the marketing doing its job, or a symptom of the travel daydreaming which is common in 2020, but if I was to picture myself stretched out on a lounge chair and sipping an ice cold G&T on a warm beach somewhere in Greece, it would be made with the Med Gin. If you want to taste this gin properly, I recommend trying it neat or over ice. The Med Gin would also perform well in a martini if you’re looking for something stronger.
