MINKE GIN

43.2% alc. / vol.

Inspired by the Minke Whale, the majestic creatures that swim wild off our Atlantic Ocean coastline. The same local coastline is home to the unique botanical that gives Minke Gin its distinct flavour profile.

FORAGED BY HAND
We climb the cliffs along our shoreline to sustainably harvest native Rock Samphire, only by hand and only in season. It’s really worth the effort!

MINKE SPIRIT
The base spirit used to make Minke Gin is derived from whey, produced from our 9th generation family farm near Galley Head Lighthouse. This gives a unique velvety texture and mouthfeel to each delicious drop.

For Minke Gin we go full circle, grass to glass, harvesting nature at its best.

PALATE

Nose: Crisp and dry.

Taste: Fresh n’ fruity, zesty, later the Rock Samphire from our local cliffs becomes obvious with some green fennel-like notes.

FINISH

Slightly salty with red peppercorn in the finish.

SERVE

Serve Fill a Minke Glass with 4 large ice cubes, 1/3 Minke Gin and 2/3 Tonic.

Add two slices of lemon or lime and garnish with a mint leaf.

Enjoy!
