Things just grow. It just happens. At the right moment, in the right place, in the right conditions, glorious things begin to shoot and sprout and blossom. Yesterday, nothing. Today, something. It’s actual magic. We’re pretty lucky.
Just think of all the genius things the land, sea and sky give us. The rain, the sun, the stuff in the ground that feeds the seeds and makes them burst into life. The other day we picked a bunch of botanicals fresh from the garden;
a few baskets of Murraya flowers, a little Chamomile, Sage and Rose, among one or two others. It was a pretty good day, though today was better. For today, we grew gin.
Profits from this limited release help with the Blue Mountains’ bushfire relief and regrowth.
Native to the Blue Mountains area of New South Wales, this gin features Eucalyptus pulverulenta (more commonly known as ‘Baby Blue’) as its hero botanical – some say it’s this silver-leaved mountain gum that’s behind the famous blue haze of the mountains. And like the mountains themselves, it’s a fresh and cooling homage to this iconic Australian landmark.
