This summer gin is heavily citrus driven and inspired by Spanish horticulture, bringing together notes of Valencia oranges, lemon verbena and olives.


Spicers Sangoma Retreat was named after the Zulu word for healer. Paying homage to the origin of this name, Autumn Dry heroes the ancient medicinal herb fenugreek, which is commonly grown in Africa. Its rich notes of maple are supported by the rejuvenating flavour of ginger and sumac, bringing a warm autumn feel to this gin.


The Australian bush and country hospitality are at the heart of what we do at Hidden Vale. This gin is a celebration of native Australian botanicals grown in our region, embodying a ‘paddock to bottle’ ethos. Combining a warming mix of rich native botanicals and spices, you’ll want to curl up around a winter fire with a Winter Gin in hand.


A vibrant and aromatic gin infused with thoughtfully selected spices of Asia that embody our ‘east meets west’ retreat. Tamarind is a place of tranquillity and this gin is no exception. The harmonious balance between floral hibiscus, Szechuan pepper and galangal make for the perfect springtime gin.
