Melbourne Gin Company has added a new gin to their lineup, Single Shot. After five years of development, Single Shot is a gin made in a single distillation, meaning the botanicals are individually distilled then blended together.
This full flavoured gin is a real winner, backing this up with a number of accolades and 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).
“From the outset, we set ourselves some key conditions. We wanted to taste the Juniper. We wanted it to taste different to our Melbourne Dry Gin. We sought intensity, texture and persistence of flavour,” says Andrew Marks, Owner and Distiller, MGC. “We have introduced some new botanicals, seven in total, to achieve this.”
Since the launch of Melbourne Dry Gin in 2013, the team have continued on with their fascination of gin, conducted many trials, perfecting their craft and playing with a number of different botanicals to produce Single Shot.
“It has taken us five years to make a gin we can create in a Single Shot,” says Andrew, “and while we’re thrilled with the international accolades we can’t wait to get it out to the public.”
When mixing with Single Shot it may louche (form a fine glazy mist) in a G&T or Martini, which MGC celebrates as a mark of distinction.
Single Shot is available in selected independent retails and on-premise nationally for RRP $95.00, and online.
