Issue #002 In Good Spirits

BOTANICAL PROFILE – LEMON MYRTLE

The traditionally inspired Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin presents a layered composition of time-honoured botanical flavours - classic juniper for its drying quality, root botanicals for earthiness, ginger for spice and cassia bark for warmth. These traditional botanicals have then been complemented by a selection of Australian natives, creating a complexity true to the origin of the spirit.

The use of native lemon myrtle is becoming somewhat of a signature of the Australian gin movement. Take a sip of our Signature Dry Gin and your palate should be livened by the vibrant, citrus notes. We’ve added lemon myrtle for depth as well as fresh orange and native Australian blood limes. Blood limes are particularly interesting, being a hybrid of the Australian red finger lime and crossed with either the Rangpur lime or the Ellendale mandarin (which is itself an orange x mandarin hybrid).

More than simply a native alternative to the classic lemon, lemon myrtle offers a deeper, more robust flavour than its lemon peel counterpart. This piquant intensity stems from the high concentration of a compound known as citral, which gives us that classic ‘lemon’ flavour. Lemon myrtle leaves can contain 20-50 times more citral than the common lemon.

The process of producing the best botanical distillate from lemon myrtle is a delicate one. Once successful, the distillate offers a refined, refreshing sweetness, eschewing any of the bitter characteristics evident in lemon.

To achieve this balance we carefully pack the ‘carter head’ section of the still with the lightly dried lemon myrtle leaves to gently extract the abundantly rich botanical oils. Used sparingly, it perfectly marries with other citrus notes and sweetens the spirit. Too much, and the balance is tipped and the composition overpowered.

Once bottled, the end product is a beautifully balanced dry gin comprising fourteen traditional and native botanicals including Dorrigo pepperleaf, river mint, blood lime and lemon myrtle.

Why don’t you try mixing your own botanicals with our Tailored Spirits range
