If you don’t know about Applewood Distillery by now, well there’s not much to say except to ask – how long have you been living under a rock?

The artisans out at Applewood have been creating wonderful and uniquely Australian spirits since their establishment. Their processes are founded in sustainable practices and a focus on native ingredients, combining flavours that may surprise you.

With their recent range of gins named after the main component (muntrie, riberry and finger lime to name a few) they also know how to cleverly showcase a single ingredient against the backdrop of your standard botanicals.

One of Applewood’s final releases of 2020 is the Macadamia Gin, which puts the native nut front and centre alongside vanilla, wattleseed and cardamom. The nose of the Macadamia gin is absolutely moreish, with a delicate sweet and salty profile. On the palate, the gin is rich and buttery, with the vanilla providing an appropriately sweet balance without coming to the forefront to take anything away from the macadamia. The spirit itself has a few floaty remnants of the macadamia swilling around the glass, but don’t let that put you off – it has no texture to it and only enhances the nutty flavours.

I recommend sipping the macadamia gin neat or over ice. But of course, you can always add soda or tonic to the glass. It would also be delightful in a martini.

This gin is a limited edition release and they never stick around for long. If you are keen to get your hands on one follow the link in the info box at the top left of the article.
