Australia’s Best Gin

“This was far and away the prettiest, most harmonious and enchanting gin we tasted.” According to Luke Ashton when taste Classic Gintesting Australia’s best gins in the Australian Gourmet Traveller.

Luke along with Max Allen, was referring to McHenry’s Classic Dry Gin and both men praised McHenry’s Classic Dry as Australia’s best gin out of a range of 23 different gins.

McHenry’s Classic Dry Gin is an elegant smooth Gin that is re-distilled in the presence of various botanicals such as citrus peel and is balanced with a small amount of star anise, coriander seeds, cardamon and orris root all beautifully balanced with the juniper.

No one botanical dominated the flavour profile, and the overall impression was one of soft aromatic attraction: “Like walking into an old-fashioned candy store,” said Luke and praising the gin as making an amazingly refined G & T.
