Byron Bay, Australia- Monday the 28th of August 2017- The first of its kind, Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin is masterfully created with the Davidson Plum, a unique fruit indigenous to the subtropical rainforest of Northern NSW.
Cape Byron Distillery, the home of Brookie’s Gin has released their latest edition, Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin. Made in the style of the traditional English ‘sloe’ gin, the Davidson Plums are steeped in Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin for several months, allowing time to weave its magic.
The Davidsonia Plum is considered the jewel of the rainforest, indigenous to northern NSW and south-east QLD, packed with an array of vitamins and minerals, is a true a bushfood delicacy.
Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin is created over several months from macerating the Davidson Plums in Brookie’s gin and finally blended with Mount Warning Spring water and bottled at 26% ABV.
“Expect an exhilarating taste of rose, watermelon and contrasted with a distinct sourness of cherry, plum and a medium dry finish” comments Eddie Brook, Distiller and Co-founder of Cape Byron Distillery. “Our Slow gin is inspired by the traditional English ‘sloe’ gin style, substituting sloe berries for a unique rainforest fruit, the Davidson Plum”.
Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin is currently available in premium bars, restaurants and independent retailer outlets throughout the east coast of Australia.
Cape Byron distillery is set in the heart of the Brook family’s macadamia farm, surrounded by sub-tropical rainforest, a re-generation project the Brook family have established for over thirty years.
