Move over pink gin, Dancing Sands has bottled summer! Fresh strawberries and locally sourced rhubarb are infused with their dry gin as a nod to summer nostalgia. Bottled at 37.5% ABV, this is what they call a sippin’ gin!
They start with fresh strawberries and locally sourced rhubarb, which are candied and then infused with their dry gin. The Sun-Kissed Gin gin has a lovable sweetness full of candied strawberry notes and a delicate balance with the tartness of rhubarb. The original dry gin layers of cardamom, coriander, and peppercorns still shine through making this gin quite complex. It is aromatic, fresh, and smooth and dangerously drinkable.
PLEASE NOTE: Because this uses real ingredients, the colour of the gin will fade over time and sediment will occur. Nature doesn’t stay pink for too long!
How do you build New Zealand’s most awarded distillery in just 2 years time? We never knew the rules so we didn’t know we were breaking them. Entirely self-taught in the art of distillation, Ben & Sarah Bonoma do not come from beverage backgrounds. Ben, an American, and Sarah, a Brit, moved to New Zealand after falling in love over a long distance relationship. Many kilometers later, they found themselves in simply the most stunning place on the planet: Golden Bay, New Zealand. After trading in America and the UK for New Zealand, it was time to trade in corporate careers and keyboards for a still and a plan: bring the most stunning place on the planet to the world by creating an attention grabbing range of spirits and break all of the rules in the process.
