Anther Barrel Aged Cherry Gin
Age is a gift. Especially when it tastes this good.
Picture this, fresh Tasmanian cherries harvested and pitted within 24 hours, placed in Championship Victorian Gin then rested in an ex-whisky barrel for 6 months. Are you drooling yet?
Anther Barrel Aged Cherry Gin is the brainchild of Anther Spirits Dervilla McGowan, supported by Ned Whisky’s Head Distiller Dean Leslie. Dervilla McGowan, the championship distiller, is challenging the idea of flavours and has expertly married the dark fruit of Anther’s Cherry Gin and Ned Whisky’s American Oak barrels.
Dervilla McGowan hero’s contemporary Australian flavours in the distillates of all Anther Spirits creations, so the bold idea to bring together the native flavours of Australia and the Australian grown grains used to make Ned Whisky was a no brainer. Dervilla McGowan says, “I’ve always wanted to age our Anther Cherry Gin. It’s the perfect Christmas after dinner sipper and cocktail base. The dark fruit of the luxurious Anther Cherry Gin is complimented by the wickedly smooth whisky flavours. We’ve been lucky to work with Ned Whisky, so after a little chat I was able to host an ex-whisky barrel from Ned Whisky and put 200 hundred litres of our 2021 Anther Cherry Gin inside. The liquid has been resting for 6 months and we’ve had the ‘hard’ job of monitoring it’s flavour every week!”.
On the flavour Dervilla McGowan says, ‘It tastes like Christmas. The scent is so divine, you open a bottle and wherever you are is filled with lusciousness”.
