The West Winds Cutlass is bolstered by an increase in ABV to 50% to take its place amongst the new-world styles that continue to emerge. Handcrafted, small batch is the key to its delicacy. The introduction of Australian bush tomato pairs up with an increase in coriander seed to produce a headstrong but beautifully aromatic and very drinkable gin. For the seasoned gin drinker serve with lots of ice, a splash of premium tonic and a sliver of green capsicum.
"The extra alcoholic strength, and the inclusion of the dark, dense flavours of bush tomato as one of the botanicals, makes this an intensely powerful, distinctive gin. It makes a fabulously hearty G&T - ‘It’ll fix you of malaria, or whatever else ails you’ said Luke – and a rich, meaty martini that’s crying out for a large glass, a green olive and a sympathetic ear". Luke Ashton (Australian winner of the Diageo Bartender of the Year gong in 2013) in Gourmet Traveller’s August 2014 edition
