Lavandula angustifolia is a highly aromatic botanical. The locally sourced, dried flowers add a vibrant florality and sweetness and also brings softness to the gin. It also accentuates the cooling effect of the cardamom.
The dried leaves of mentha x piperita are carefully blended in this recipe to bring cooling, brightening and clean flavours and a refreshing mentholic finish.
Fresh, locally foraged leptospermum scoparium. The Mānuka wood and leaves bring a fresh green cucumber and tea tree note, while its flowers bring sweetness and a honey tone. The delicate white clusters of Mānuka flowers look like snow.
Whole, halved citrus x latifolia are used in this blend which are sourced from Karamea, here on the West Coast. This variety of lime has an exceptionally crisp and uplifting character and delivers a fresh lime top note with sweetness and acidity.
