Summer has arrived early… Antipodes Gin Co has released Australia’s first Certified Organic, vegan-friendly and carbon neutral Watermelon Gin, just in time for Christmas.
Nothing beats a cool slice of watermelon in summer. With that in mind, Antipodes Gin Co decided to give this quintessential summer melon a more adult edge by making a gin laden with its incredible flavour.
Through months of experimentation and plenty of trial and error, the perfect blend of watermelon, juniper and lemon myrtle was finally developed. The resulting delicately nuanced spirit joins the tasting flight of their range of vegan friendly, certified organic gins and liqueurs.
“We’ve been dreaming about summer here at Antipodes Gin Co and after years of wrestling with some huge watermelons for our kids and wondering if it is really a fruit or vegetable, we asked ourselves how we could give it a more adult edge.
“We had been discussing watermelon for a while and thinking that it could help deliver the most perfect summer gin – and we weren’t wrong. We’ve created a juicily aromatic spirit with the delicate sweetness of watermelon perfectly balanced by the tartness of lemon myrtle. We cannot wait to share it with your summer,” he said.
Antipodes Watermelon Gin works in a variety of cocktail expressions. It sits perfectly in a spritz, as a riff in an old fashioned or paired with some yuzu soda. It’s not precious – you can even go low-brow and splash it in with a bit of Solo and ice – just add sunshine, BBQs and the beach!
Established in 2015, Antipodes Gin Co is Australia’s first certified organic, vegan friendly, carbon neutral spirits company. Their distillery in Canberra distills GMO, chemical and pesticide free spirits and liqueurs.
With so many over-used slogans in the spirits category of ‘drink better gin’ ‘small batch’ or ‘sustainable’ the Antipodes philosophy is to walk the talk and the company are proud to say that they have planted over 16,000 trees with their partners at Carbon Neutral Australia.
