McHenry Barrel Aged Gin 700 ml

WHAT IS IT?

Distilled in the same fashion as the classic McHenry London Dry, the gin is then transferred to a solera of 200 litres American Oak Russells Reserve ex-bourbon barrels. The gins from each barrel is then blended, creating a gin with scents of lemon myrtle, pine needles and pepper following through. A smooth gin without any artificial ingredients or flavourings added. The distillery uses a base of neutral Australian cane spirit (also the base for its vodka) as it believes it to be cleaner than neutral grain spirit. 

Alcoholic strength: 40% ABV

William McHenry & Sons Distillery rests on the side of Mount Arthur and is located on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania. The distillery is Australia’s southern-most whisky distillery and with its family heritage makes it the southernmost family run distillery in the world. 

William McHenry used to work in the corporate world before giving it up to chase an interest in distilling spirits, more specifically whisky. The idea for the distillery came about from a conversation he had with his neighbour at a BBQ in 2006 when they were talking about alternative careers. His neighbour said that with a name like William McHenry he ought to be playing bagpipes and making whisky. William became enamoured with the idea and 2 years later in 2008, he bought the property in Tasmania in which the distillery is now located before the entire family moved down to Tasmania in 2010. He chose the location on which the distillery is located for its southern location which takes advantage of the cool moist maritime environment, which gives maturing spirit the right condition to make the most of its time in wooden barrels. The property also has its own abundant pure spring water which becomes the heart of the developing spirit. The still is a 500 litre copper still that is manufactured in Tasmania.
