A STORY OF MANY TANGELOS

Citrus and Gin are the perfect partnership. From clementine to yuzu, all kinds of Gins rely on their zesty kick. The Canberra Distillery is known for its Blood Orange and Gin but you may not know that we also use a very particular fruit for our Dry Gin: the tangelo.

Every year, almost one hundred kilos of tangelos are delivered to the Distillery by our friends at Ziggys Fresh. We painstakingly peel away the skin in such a way that all the flavourful zest is preserved and none of the bitter pith. This is then placed in a basket that sits within our still to provide an aromatic infusion as the Gin is distilled.

And what do we do with all that delicious fruit? Usually it finds a home in one of Canberra’s many hospitality venues. Last year the team at Lazy Su turned it into a delicious tangelo cocktail. Stay tuned to our social media to see where it ends up this year.

HER CANBERRA FRENCH EARL GREY GIN

Is there anything they can't do?

The unstoppable team at HerCanberra collaborated with us a few years ago to develop the highly popular French Earl Grey Gin using tea from local legends, Tea Garden Co. Not only does it have an intensely aromatic profile, rich in bergamot and lavender notes, it changes colour too! Have you tried it? Some like theirs straight, others in a cocktail or with tonic but have you tried it in a G & Tea? Might be just the ticket for a cold, winter's night.
