A splendid announcement – welcoming Tasmania’s The Splendid Gin to our portfolio. Made from the cleanest air and water, using only the finest ingredients, passion and dedication, providing unparalleled purity in every drop.
The team behind The Splendid Gin pride themselves on innovation and a passion for gin. Tasmania is their home, and they aim to showcase the beauty of their home in a bottle.
When two couples met on the East Coast of Tasmania, both living in historical properties once inhabited by the famous English writer Louisa Ann Meredith there was a feeling this was more than coincidence.
Picturing a time in the rambling rose filled gardens, where the gin may well have flowed as freely as the natural Spring water passing right by it, the opportunity now seems obvious.
With a plump and zesty mandarin plucked fresh from the tree alongside rosemary and coriander straight from the herb garden, something splendid was about to happen.
It then took (more than) a pinch of the fabulously talented Nat Fryar (ex head wine maker of the famous Jansz sparkling and Pipers Brook) to blend the purest of Tasmanian spring water, direct from Spring Vale Estate, a triple distilled grape spirit of the highest grade, a fourth distillation and… The Splendid Gin was born.
The distillery operates 2 copper pot stills. The first is a 1200 litre copper pot, used solely to distill base spirit of the finest quality and grade. The second is a beautiful 150 litre copper pot. It is used for all the vapour infused fresh botanical distillations.
