Description- Your breakfast gin. First strong cold brew coffee notes fill your palate, then comes the chocolate. It’s like drinking your favourite iced mocha. Finally, the gin finishes with notes of citrus fruits.
The No.8 still sits in the window at the Dog with Two Tails in sunny Dunedin. Their processes – drying botanicals that they've foraged, macerating, distilling, mixology – is all on display. This is part of their goal to demystify the art of distilling and make it more accessible to the good and gorgeous people of Dunners. They also have a refill & bottle swap system and sustainable program to do 0 waste.
No.8 Distillery came from the need to get things done with what they had to hand while setting up and installing their distillery during the April 2020 lockdown & fix everything with a No8 wire cable. Their still is a beautiful Franken-machine named "Therese" with all sorts of parts thrown together and reconfigured to create a unique still that can do more than most stills her size. The No.8 attitude carries on in the way that they'll experiment with different and unconventional ways of extraction to see what they get. Julien also created their first gin - the Horopito Fire Gin with 8 main ingredients.
