Never Never Distilling Co.
Gin is on the menu at this McLaren Vale distillery — and you can stop by for a gin and tonic flight.
Pick one thing. Do it well. That's good advice in life, and it's good advice when it comes to making spirits. So, that's exactly what Never Never Distilling Co has done, with the McLaren Vale-based distillery focusing on gin, a gin-filled fruit cup, a juniper-based version of the Italian liqueur amaro and an aquavit made with Australian botanicals.
Leading the charge, of course, is its signature Triple Juniper Gin. The lightly cloudy drop undergoes three different distillation processes — first steeping the juniper for 24 hours, then pot-distilling the steep with more juniper, and finally adding even more juniper to the vapour basket. Also featuring coriander seed, angelica root, orris root, lemon peel, lime peel, liquorice root, cinnamon and Australian pepper berry, the end result is a multi-award winner that's earthy yet bright, and also leaves a creamy finish.
Visitors to Never Never's distillery door can try it as part of the venue's gin and tonic flights — with the menu changing monthly. A selection of food is also available and, if you're heading by with just three other pals, you won't need a booking to hang out and get sipping by the lawn.
