Rogue Society Distilling - New Zealand

700ml | 40.26% ABV
Drawing on warm summer nights, this seasonal release pays homage to the Hawke's Bay region. Managing to both capture and concentrate the flavours of leftover crops, with botanicals of raspberry leaf, pear and olive preserved well beyond their natural harvest.
An Uncommon gin, there are only 3000 individually-numbered bottles in existence.
Scapegrace Gin uses Glacial Water from the Southern Alps of New Zealand. New Zealand water is unique because our geography is unique. The rain that hits New Zealand is the same as the rain that hit New Zealand a thousand years ago. The first thing it hits is a huge, jagged mountain range that runs the length of the South Island. This mountain range then holds this water for 80 years. That’s how long it takes to travel through the layers of sediment until it’s finally released in to the depths of one of the world’s last natural aquifers. The reason that Scapegrace tastes clean is because it is.
Two guys from New Zealand who didn’t know each other until one married the others sister and then they did. A year sitting in bars and lounges discussing how they always wanted to make their own gin. This is how two brothers-in-law and a part time musician got in to a lot of debt and created a gin that won gold in London and San Francisco.
12 botanicals, nature's wild apostles. Water, torn from the earth 80 years after it was hurled down on New Zealand's Southern Alps. A whisky still, 19th century, stumbled upon in a long abandoned shed.
These are their ingredients. This is how Scapegrace signs its name around the globe.
