Full Circle Orange & Bay Gin
To create this soft round gin that is a summertime tribute to the sweet heady oranges hand picked from trees in the back gardens of friends and family, Full Circle have heroed bay leaves. On the nose, the scent of orange honeysuckle lifts out of the glass.
Green botanicals, including rosemary and thyme, are added into the pot and vapour basket elevating the fresh brightness from the orange as well as the rich spicy notes of the bay leaves.
Savoury notes linger at the finish as the sweetness of orange falls away. If you are looking for the flavour of summer, you’ll find it in this luscious, citrus driven new gin.
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.
