The Never Never Distilling Co. was founded by three people who are self-proclaimed "juniper freaks." Their goal is to make juniper-forward gins that are packed full of flavour, inspired by the journey into the unknown: the Never Never.
From humble beginnings, George, Sean and Tim have taken Never Never to the world stage, with a number of their gins receiving international awards and accolades.
The Triple Juniper Gin takes juniper to a whole new level! Treated three different ways - fresh, steeped and vapour basket - the juniper is certainly the hero of this gin. But it's also very carefully balanced through the addition of selected botanicals. A beautiful gin that absolutely shines in a Martini, or paired with tonic for a classic G+T.
The Triple Juniper is one of those drinks that makes you ask: Why on earth has nobody created a gin like this before? It is brimming with the brightness of the best juniper in the world, air freighted in for freshness. We treat the juniper in three distinct ways, partially steeped, partially in the pot and partially in the vapour, in carefully selected balance, to capture both the bright and the earthy qualities of this wonder berry. Well, it's actually the world's smallest conifer, but let's not get too technical.
The copious amounts of juniper give you the best thing about gin in spades. But juniper is a force that needs managing. A carefully selected bouquet of botanicals honours the brilliance of the juniper by complementing it, rather than overpowering it. Australian coriander provides a brighter citrus and less earthiness than its English or Indian counterparts. A predominate fresh lemon citrus influence with a touch of fresh lime and liquorice lifts it up over a root base of angelica and orris. Native pepperberry provides a balancing savoury element without the heavy menthol finish of traditional peppers. A hint of cinnamon the just the right amount of warmth.
Pine needle, brushed rosemary, lemon oil, earthy root extending into fragrant pepper. The palate is immediately fragrant with a bright citrus character up front. Oily and intense, the juniper is prominent, supported by the earthy undertones of angelica and orris root and extended by the addition of wooded spices and pepper. The finish is long and complex with a rich creaminess that dries out almost immediately. There is a changing dynamic of juniper, first bright and fragrant that develops into an earthy more resinous finish. The length is full and luxurious.
THE GIN QUEEN
The divine juniper gin sings out immediately upon opening the bottle, with zesty citrus aromas that made my mouth water. On tasting it has a bright piney juniper flavour with fresh citrus following through and a hint of rosemary. Earthy orris and angelica balance out the juniper and pleasant heat from the pepper berry provides a warm finish. Delicious and full-bodied with plenty of texture, Triple Juniper Gin makes a stunning G&T but is outstanding in a martini.'
