Constable Proudfoot Gin
Little Lon Distilling Co 500ml | 42% ABV
This upstanding bottle is a salute to Constable Proudfoot. Victorian vanquisher of vice and Little Lon’s long arm of the law. London Dry in style, full in flavour and loaded with juniper, it’s nutty aroma complimenting the pine and rosemary for a complex finish.
Bursting with the scent of rosemary and pine the nose, this robust yet fresh Melbourne gin is full in flavour, with a jaunty heft to the juniper and a touch of pepper on the back palate. A gin for the gin lover, enjoy Proudfoot stirred down in a Martini or served in a G&T and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and lemon.
Little Lonsdale, this once 'notorious' North-East corner of Melbourne, was a sight to behold in the 1850s. Its colourful past, specifically, a deep shade of harlot red, made it a magnet for the debauched, where wanton wenches and liquored-up larrikins lurched down its lamp-lit lanes.
Fast forward 141 years, and there they are. Little Lon Distilling Co. A gin-trified establishment commemorating the rich history of Little Lon with a range of characterful, small-batch Melbourne gins that raise a tipple to the delightful deviates that once trod these lurid laneways.
