The Emperor has new clothes. This is a classic Tasmanian gin, made by Lark distillery, and it's new packaging is causing quite a stir. The Lark team of mad distillers matched traditional gin botanicals with Tasmanian pepperberry to create a refined and elegant gin that is unlike any other. The pepperberry imbues Forty Spotted with a unique spiciness, giving an exceptionally rich and Tasmanian flavour. The unusual characteristics of the aromatics appear in the gin without dominating the spirit, giving it a delightful zing! This is the sort of gin you could sip over ice with a slice of lemon, or mix with a quality tonic water. Named after Tasmania's rarest bird, the 40 Spotted Pardalote which can be sighted on Bruny Island. This bottle will make a stunning gift.

We are super excited by this new find! We tasted this gin in the office – and it’s frankly delicious! You can drink it over crushed ice – or with soda or tonic. It’s very unique, as you can taste the sweet and fruity combination of Tasmanian Pinot grapes, peppery juniper and fragrant spices (perfect for enjoying on cooler evenings!) Hints of delicate citrus tangle with dark berries and plums in a warming embrace of rich, reddish purple.

Sloe Gin from Bill McHenry 200ml

$47.00 each

You might have seen us making sloe gin on a series of Gourmet Farmer. Sloes are an ancient variety of plum. They were planted by the early settlers as hedgerows around Evandale, near Launceston. The fruits are tiny, dark blue things that are mostly stone and a lesson in astringency. To make sloe gin, each sloe needs to be pricked a few times – painstaking work – and then allowed to steep in gin and sugar for up to a year before being racked. This version is made on the Tasman Peninsula by Bill McHenry, who also distils the gin from scratch.

We are lucky in Tassie to have so many gin distilleries. This unmissable bottle from Taylor & Smith Distilling Co. caught my eye at Hobart's Sunday morning Farm Gate Market recently, and let me tell you, what is inside is as beautiful as the packaging! Made with love and care by Natalie Smith and Ben Taylor, this small batch gin picked up a bronze at the recent Australian Gin Awards in Sydney. Taylor & Smith is the only Tasmanian distillery using apple spirit as a base for its gin, and utilises a distinctive range of Tasmanian botanicals including pepperberry, kunzea, seaweed, and leatherwood honey. This gin needs nothing more complicated than to be served with ice and a dash of soda. When your bottle is empty (it won't take long!) you can return it to the distillery for reuse and receive a discount off your next purchase.

McHenry’s Dry Gin by Bill McHenry 700ml

$85.00 each

It scares me how much I like gin. With tonic is obligatory but when the gin is this good, I also like to sip it straight. Bill McHenry is typical of so many great producers in Tasmania in how he seamlessly metamorphosed from an executive into an artisan. His distillery, the southern most in Australia, is where he makes this gin as well as vodka and a pretty decent whiskey. But, for my money, the gin is his best. It’s not at all rough or spirit like the bad stuff, instead it is packed-full of flavour from all the botanicals he uses. Citrus peel is present and balanced with a small amount of star anise, coriander seeds, cardamon and orris root all beautifully balanced with the juniper. This is a lesson in how good gin can be.

Blackmans Bay Distillery

Smoky Gin 500ml

$77.90 each

This delectable gin made with smoked almonds won silver at the Tasting Australia awards. It's distilled in a micro-distillery just south of Hobart which creates an "infinity" gin, meaning every new batch is added to the remainder of the previous, building a unique flavour profile over time. Blackmans Bay Distillery uses locally sourced organic produce and all gin is cut with pure mountain water, with all flavours arising from the distillation process, not the addition of sugar.

The distinctive label 'Inspirited Desires' by Handmark artist Mandy Renard was created in collaboration with the husband and wife team behind the distillery! With the gin being created from start to finish just south of Hobart, and the print created by local Tasmanian artist Mandy; this is a Tasmanian creation to be very excited about!

McHenry's Sloe Gin 700ml

$110.00 each

Hard core Gourmet Farmer viewers may remember we made sloe gin a few years ago. We like to think it started something in Tasmania, as since then, there are a few commercial distillers that have run with the idea. The best of the pack is undoubtedly William McHenry on the Tasman Peninsular. He collects sloes from the hedgerows that line the backroads around Evandale - an awful job, given how prickly the bushes are - and steeps them in gin with a little sugar for about six months. This is the first release of the 2014 batch. It is dark, deep red in colour and has a plummy, earthy nose. Great as an after dinner tipple, it is also a terrific twist on the classic gin and tonic.

Moonshine by Taylor & Smith 500ml

$100.00 each

Eyjpzci6ijexmta0zji4oge3yjhjntrhngvlnjgwnzgymtzjyzq5lmpwzwcilcjzdg9yywdlijoichvibgljx3n0b3jlin0?signature=8a2601e3e6f3035195a3e3a2bd9c28a913416fc1d3f7356278b28736cb6d8553

This Moonshine is essentially a barley vodka that is so called because they make it at night in their back shed. It is much more premium than its name suggests.

Taylor & Smith use only Tasmanian malted barley that then mill slowly; mash with Mt Field snowmelt; ferment with an unusual yeast - the yeast used give a much greater flavour profile to the spirit. Then double distill in our small copper pot still - which is direct fired. The resulting spirit carries through a sweetness like molasses that hints at green apple with subtle reminding wisp of floral and citrus. Dean Jackson whisky reviewer revealed that the T&S Moonshine carried lasting flavours of "rich stewed apple, cherry, honey, toffee and a good strong backbone of malty biscuity tones".

Complex, easy drinking, evolving and harmonious"..... this is seriously good spirit that deserves attention.
