About 78˚ Chocolate Gin

While the distinct notes of a traditional gin are still present, the infusion of leftover cacao husks from the chocolate-making process gives this gin a rich, velvety undertone of bittersweet chocolate that is simply divine. The use of native wattleseed and Riverland oranges further enhances the flavour profile, lending a subtle sweetness and depth to this exquisite gin.

Upon first sip, you are immediately transported to a world of indulgence and luxury, with the rich and smooth taste of dark chocolate taking centre stage. As the flavour profile unfolds, the bright tone of Jaffa orange provides a refreshing contrast, while the toasted wattleseed lends a nutty undertone that adds to the complexity of this decadent spirit.

A bold and daring choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life, our Chocolate Gin is the perfect mixing companion to your cocktails, lending a rich chocolate note to classic cocktails, or providing a delicious base to new creations. If you like to keep things a little simpler, our Chocolate Gin is great partnered with a light tonic, or ginger ale.

Overall, 78˚Chocolate Gin is a true masterpiece of flavour infusion, with every sip offering a moment of pure luxury and decadence.

Like a liquid Terry's Chocolate Orange but not too overpowering on flavour. Well balanced and absolutely delish!

- Brendan
So Good!!!
- Mark
I could see it being a nice addition to a dessert cocktail or even just on the rocks as a nightcap. Overall, I'd say it's definitely worth a try if you're a fan of gin and looking for something a little different.
- Tim
I'm not usually a big gin person, but the chocolate flavor definitely gives it a unique twist. It's not too overwhelming either, just a nice subtle hint of chocolate that makes it a bit more interesting than your typical gin.
- Tom
It's so delicious that I could honestly drink it straight out of the bottle (although I wouldn't recommend doing that!). If you haven't tried this gin yet, you are seriously missing out. Trust me, once you try it, you'll never want to go back to plain old gin again!
- Tim
I honestly can't say enough good things about this gin. It's the perfect drink for any occasion - whether you're sipping it on a cozy night in or sharing it with friends at a party.
- Sandra
Upon taking my first sip, I was blown away by the smooth, velvety texture and the perfect balance of flavours. The chocolate notes were prominent but not overwhelming, and the gin itself was so perfectly crafted that it didn't overpower the chocolate in any way.
- Rob
Oh my goodness, where do I even begin with this chocolate gin? This is hands down the best gin I have ever tasted in my entire life, and I have tried my fair share of gins. From the moment I opened the bottle, the aroma of rich, decadent chocolate wafted up to my nose and I knew I was in for a treat.
