Thomson Whiskey Distillery - Riverhead, New Zealand
Style - Flavoured
700ml | 42% ABV
Juniper, Cardamom, Lemon, Lemongrass, Coriander & Chardonnay Grape.
Seasonal release, celebrating the Chardonnay grape harvest of 2021. With this limited edition bottling they have combined the original Victor Gin botanicals with the fruity, delicate flavour of fresh chardonnay grape must. Candied lemongrass and stewed fruits on the nose. Lemon sorbet, sweet grapes and cardamom on the palate. Viscous mouth feel and lingering juniper notes.
The Thomson Whiskey Distillery is located in one of NZ's oldest wine regions, North West of Auckland. The region is famous for its Chardonnay, so it seemed only fitting that we pay homage to this grape. Champagne made from only Chardonnay is referred to as 'Blanc de Blancs' or white of whites.
Thomson Whisky started the same way you’d start a band. They got together and just started tinkering. It was never about taking over the world, or playing Wembley, but about giving it a go, creating the best spirit they could afford to and sharing their journey with anyone who liked whisky before venturing into gin as well. They're inspired by music, design, craft beer, artefacts, mysteries, family and spirits and are proud to be contributing to the craft distilling movement in Aotearoa.
