WHAT IS IT?
A London Dry style gin distilled using a grape spirit as its base. Unlike it's standard gin which focusses on 100% traditional London Dry gin botanicals, the Weaver uses 50% Australian native botanicals (cinnamon myrtle, anise myrtle, lemon myrtle, strawberry gum and wattleseed), all of which Loch distillers Craig and Mel still grind by hand before distillation, and some of which are picked fresh from their own garden. The botanicals are steeped in the grape spirit before being distilled in their hand beaten Alembic copper pot stills from Portugal. This is also a higher alcoholic strength than most standard gins - coming in at about 50% ABV. Leading with juniper on the palate, it progresses to a distinctly savoury finish. Perfect for a martini.
Alcoholic strength - 50% ABV
WHO'S BEHIND IT?
Co-founder of Loch, Craig Johnson became a devotee of single malt whisky fifteen years ago while living in Melbourne. It started a journey that led to the small Victorian country town of Loch in South Gippsland, occupying an old bank building which now houses the distillery, brewery and cellar door. In between, Craig and his wife (and co-founder) Mel spent time with Bill Lark in Tasmania learning the art of distilling before designing a small brewery (in order to make whisky). Craig & Mel's copper distillery equipment (hand beaten in Portugal) was not readily available in Australia however the rest of the operation was made from locally sourced materials. The pot distilled gin is the first spirit available from Loch with the couple planning seasonal variations during the year to each production of gin as different botanicals become available from their garden.
