Ginger Mick Gin
Little Lon Distilling Co 500ml | 42% ABV
This bounteous bottle is dedicated to Ginger Mick. Legendary larrikin and official bluey of Victorian Little Lon. This Genever-inspired nectar, with a bright bouquet of crisp orange, grapefruit and notes of ginger and juniper emerging tellingly on the finish
Bright and crisp citrus notes, bursting with the sweet and sourness of ruby grapefruit. A hint of ginger tickles the back palette, with a viscousness to round-out the mouth-feel. Savoury and smooth, Ginger Mick is best enjoyed neat and is wonderful in a Negroni or a Gin Old Fashioned.
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.
