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 center 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, the Chocolate Gin is best savoured neat, over ice, allowing the full depth of the flavour profile to shine through. For those who prefer to mix things up, we recommend a light tonic that will take your taste buds on a journey of pure indulgence.
Overall, 78˚Chocolate Gin is a true masterpiece of flavour infusion, with every sip offering a moment of pure luxury and decadence.
