According to the distiller, they like to think of Young Henrys Noble Cut as a brewer’s gin, blending techniques and flavours from both brewing and distillation. Just like their beer, the base of this gin is 100% grain - no additives, adjuncts or agents. They ferment the grain, distill it twice, then infuse the spirit with everything that gives gin its classic botanical characters; juniper, coriander, orange peel, cassia bark, liquorice root and angelica root. But, because they’re brewers, they’ve also given Noble Cut their own twist: Hops.
Enigma hops, developed and grown locally, are added to the gin basket to give a mineral complexity you’d expect to find in a fine white wine. However, that’s not the only local ingredient they use. The uniquely Australian pepperberry and bush tomato are included, along with a pinch of cascara and Australian-grown sencha.
All of that leads to a highly aromatic, highly complex and altogether unique take on the London Dry style of gin.
