Founded in 2015 by four friends, Animus Distillery soon outgrew its Fitzroy origins and is now located in central Victoria. Triple filtered, 100% Australian grain spirit is used and many of the botanicals (all vapour pressed in a 50L copper still) are grown on the property. During production botanical baskets are changed every few litres and the final ABV is kept relatively high in order to maximise flavours.
Tasting note: Clear. Aromas of juniper at the piney, sappy end of the scale along with background orange pith / peel and muted peppers. 3-4 minutes of air contact emphasises spicy citrus oils (mandarin / orange) and adds a gingery warmth to the bouquet. Entry is moderately oily / creamy followed by a concentrated, citrus-led attack finishing with lemon verbena, faint ginger beer-like notes and lingering piney juniper adding freshness. Spiced-up yet well balanced new-world gin.
