Holland Road Distillery - Eureka, New Zealand
Style - Contemporary
500ml | 47% ABV
A premium London Dry gin, hand-crafted in a copper pot still using traditional botanicals and a unique mystical blend of freshly harvested wild ginseng, raw manuka honey and a hint of green yuzu. An extremely smooth blend with floral notes, herbaceous and candied with a delicate creamy finish.
At Holland Road they follow in the footsteps of ancient folk healers by using natural botanicals and traditional spices with magical properties blended with organic fruits, teas, wines and raw honey to create intriguing contemporary gins like nothing you have ever tasted before. All of their recipes are methodically steeped, macerated and boiled in a copper pot still, then slowly vapour infused in a single continuous process to create complex, yet well balanced aromatic London Dry gins. To maintain the integrity of our recipes, they do not chill filter their gin. This allows essential botanical oils and flavonoids to remain in the distillation, resulting in a more authentic gin, with a rounder mouthfeel and richer aromatic complexity.
Frequenting the mysterious shadows of the 17th Century, plague doctors disguised their identity behind bird-like perfumed masks filled with aromatic herbs such as juniper, mint, rose petals and exotic spices like cinnamon and myrrh. With this crow-like appearance, these mystical doctors embraced the traditions of masquerade, hiding their true identity, man or woman. Passed down through the centuries, herbal lore and natural witchcraft are still important to those who practice the alchemy of distillation, the ancient art of creating medicinal tonics from plant-based ingredients. Holland Road embraces the traditions of these ancient practices, sourcing natural botanicals long used for their protective qualities. They are proud of the fact that each bottle of gin produced is meticulously hand crafted, bottled and labelled in New Zealand. The distinctive artwork and magical symbols in our label are a tribute to the ancient healers whose folk medicine pioneered modern distillation practices and a reflection of the passion that goes into each batch of their premium gin.
