Tiny Bear Gin Trio
Enjoy a sampling of all three Australian gins by Tiny Bear.
The Doctor - "Alcohol and medicine have a long and proud history. It has been used as everything from a digestive to a disinfectant. Dogs bearing tiny casks of booze were used to rescue travellers from the threat of avalanche in the Swiss Alps, while a shot of gin was known to ward off the plague in Medieval times. Indeed, where would the British Empire have been without gin around to make their anti-malaria tonic drinkable? In 'the DOCTOR' we believe we continued in that grand tradition of people ‘exaggerating’ the medicinal powers of alcohol. This product is both refreshing and invigorating, just want the doctor ordered and hey it's made from kale too, so you know it has to be good for you! 42% ABV
A front to back, well-rounded palate with notes of juniper, herbal tones, fronted by dill, sweetness from almond, a warm woody note to end from cinnamon and roots.
The Gypsy - The ancient Persian book of Kings - the Shahnameh - tells of a time when the King demanded that India send him 10,000 musicians to entertain him. They did, and the King was so pleased that he gave each musician an ox, a donkey and a cart filled with wheat so they could wander the countryside, support themselves on the crop they grew and entertain the people of Persia. Of course, these were musicians - a group of people famously incompetent at pretty much everything except music and trashing hotel rooms. So, it was to no one's surprise when they returned to the King a year later, having eaten through their supplies.The King, of course, was furious and expelled them to Europe. The Europeans assumed that they had migrated from Egypt and began to call them "Gypsies", along with the usual persecution of outsiders which we're all familiar with.
How true is this story? We have no idea. What we do know is that the name of THE GYPSY brings a hint of exotic spices, a touch of the orient and a hint of magic. Just the thing to describe our latest blend of gin. 43% ABV
Tasting Notes: A mid-back palate; warm and spicy comfort from exotic peppers, cumin and ginger.
