Blind Tiger Organic Shiraz Gin
Made at the height of vintage this artisan Organic Shiraz Gin melds the art of distillation with that of small batch winemaking. Carefully nurtured, hand harvested Organic McLaren Vale Shiraz from our family Warboys Vineyard was hand picked in early March. These organic and biodynamically grown Shiraz vines were planted in the 1930’s and yield the most delicious ripe berries perfect for our first Shiraz gin vintage. Half was steeped in gin for a week, the organic gin spirit extracting colour aroma and fruit sweetness. The other half was fermented following time honoured fortified wine techniques for three days until the fermentation was stopped by adding organic Blind Tiger Gin and then macerated for another 2 days. The 2 batches were pressed and blended to produce a unique, delicious Organic Shiraz Gin. A perfect marriage of only Organic Gin and Organic Single Vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz, nothing else added or needed.
Deep opaque crimson with a purple hue, the juniper spice and citrus botanicals of the Organic Blind Tiger Gin lift the unctuous Shiraz fruit, full bodied and delicious on the palate the Single Vineyard Organic Shiraz Gin finishes long and sweet.
Blind Tiger Organic Mandarin Gin
Blind Tiger Organic Mandarin Gin is carefully handcrafted in small batches from Organic “Dancy” and “Imperial” Mandarins grown in the sun-drenched Riverland of South Australia by the Howie family at Fat Goose Fruits The Mandarins were peeled and the pulp discarded and peel kept in varietal batches. 1/3 of the peel was soaked fresh overnight in organic spirit then distilled varietally as a separate run the following day. Remaining 2/3 of peel was air dried in the Distillery above the pot stills and then distilled in small batches. The fresh and dry Imperial mandarin distillates were blended together, as were the two Dancy distillates creating 2 different styles of mandarin concentrates. Selected amounts of the two mandarin concentrates were then blended together with the 6 Blind Tiger London Dry botanicals and organic wheat spirit.
It is an explosion of exotic botanicals infused with intense mandarin aromas from the Imperials with the Dancy’s coming through mid palate with a refreshing juicy citrus finish to create the perfect gin to serve neat over ice, with soda or in a Gin and Fever Tree Aromatic Tonic, with a twist of orange peel and sliced mandarin segments, for that extra level of flavour and excitement.

Blind Tiger Organic London Dry Gin
Blind Tiger Organic London Dry Gin is hand crafted and distilled in small batches and is a complex, yet elegant and aromatic gin made from the finest certified organic botanicals.
Juniper Berry is the core botanical of many Gins. In Blind Tiger Organic London Dry Gin it provides a backbone of fresh spring forest and citrus notes. Cassia provides a delicate top note of spice whilst Coriander has been selected as it enhances the citrus characters of the juniper and imparts a subtle earthy character. The citrus peel (lemon, bitter orange and sweet orange) further enhance the citrus characters. Angelica root gives a delightfully aromatic and heady note of musk. Summer savory contributes a subtle mint like peppery character with Licorice root completing the botanical mix and imparting a fuller mouthfeel.
The handpicked organic botanicals are distilled individually through a small pot still, creating distinctive elements that are drawn on to craft and blend Blind Tiger Organic Gin.
The combination of these botanicals and premium Australian Organic wheat spirit creates a London Dry Gin that is a perfect mixer with Tonic or Soda and a great base for one of the hugely popular gin based cocktails.
