Loch Gin 700ml

Notify me when this product is available:


A London Dry style gin distilled using a grape spirit as its base. Unlike some other Australian gins, Loch has chosen to focus on traditional London Dry gin botanicals rather than Australian native botanicals, all of which they 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. The result is a softer style of gin with a slight peppery nose and finish that is balanced with no one botanical dominating.

Alcoholic strength - 41% ABV 


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.
