A MELBOURNE DRY GIN
A gin that encapsulates a city. Paying homage to London Dry Gin, MGC Melbourne Dry is a classic gin with a twist of Melbourne.
Eleven botanicals, both local and exotic, are each individually extracted, distilled and then blended to create a well-rounded, smooth and slightly surprising gin.
Building on the classic foundations of juniper berries and coriander seed, the grapefruit peel and Rosemary hail from the garden at Gembrook Hill Vineyard in the Yarra Valley, where the gin is made.
The other locals are macadamia, sandalwood, honey lemon myrtle and organic navel orange.
Bringing Melbourne’s cosmopolitan flavour to the mix are the exotics: angelica root, orris root and cassia bark.
The final component is water - rainwater from Gembrook in the Yarra Ranges, 60km from Melbourne, with a purity that allows the botanicals to shine through.
We hope you enjoy this unexpected mix of classic and contemporary, local and exotic. A Melbourne Dry Gin.
We wanted to taste the Juniper. We wanted it to taste different to our Melbourne Dry Gin. We wanted it to taste amazing.
The Single Shot is a gin made in a single distillation, unlike the MGC’s original Melbourne Dry Gin, in which botanicals are individually distilled then blended together. The result is a full flavoured gin, so much so it may louche (form a fine glazy mist) in a G&T or Martini, which MGC celebrates as a mark of distinction.
Even before its release, Melbourne Gin Company has received major international accolades for Single Shot becoming the most awarded gin that no one has yet tasted.
- Double Gold at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Awards;
- Gin Master at the 2018 Gin Masters Awards London,
- Gold Medal at the 2018 World Gin Masters – Asia (Hong Kong)
Since 2013 when MGC launched their first pioneering product, Melbourne Dry Gin, their fascination with the alchemy of gin has kept them busy conducting trials, perfecting their techniques and playing with different botanicals to create Single Shot.
Simply impressive. Enjoy Single Shot in your favourite gin cocktail or check out our recommendations.
