Full Circle Chinotto Gin
Imagine sitting on a terrace, orange trees heavy with fruit, drenched in the warmth of the sun, as you enjoy Full Circle's Chinotto (Italian Cola) flavours of this gin, drawn from the citrus, botanicals and cherries of summer.
It is beautifully complex, deep and layered. You’ll taste fresh lush Riverland Blood Oranges, Ruby Grapefruit and Oranges that are supported by cinnamon, star anise and nutmeg. Other botanicals include rosemary, thyme and dark summer cherries gathered in the Adelaide Hills.
In distillation, the gin pot is filled with citrus, dark cherries and spices. Botanicals are added into the vapour basket to build the savoury flavours that compliment the rich citrus and cherry notes that are signatures of chinotto.
ABOUT FULL CIRCLE
Full Circle’s distiller (and co-founder) is well known as a maker of award winning wines from McLaren Vale South Australia, Corsica and Provence. But quietly, as is her way, Rose Kentish has been distilling eau de vie for the local market on the isle of Corsica since 2010. She is a deeply creative maker by nature; one in a lifelong pursuit of flavour, scent and beauty. Rose also values story when anchored firmly in authenticity.
Full Circle’s philosophy aligns with its maker’s, and they celebrate flavours that hero what’s bountiful and commonly found in the backyards and on the kitchen tables of South Australia. The coastal Mediterranean-like climate produces a bouquet of scent that rises from lavender, eucalyptus, bay leaves, olives, luscious and varied types of citrus; frequently these are hand picked by them from the gardens of family, neighbours and friends. Sunlit flavours are captured in gins that take us straight to the ocean’s edge - a soft and round vodka, infused with savoury botanicals freshly rinsed by morning rain leads us to the Adelaide Hills.
