The rain that hits New Zealand is the same as the rain that hit New Zealand a thousand years ago. None of it comes through clouds passing over land masses belching out car fumes and agricultural enhancers. The first thing it hits is a huge, jagged mountain range that runs the length of the South Island. This mountain range then holds this water for 80 years. That’s how long it takes to travel through the layers of sediment until it’s finally released in to the depths of one of the world’s last natural aquifers. Think about that. The water in this gin has actually been filtering through rock since before your grandfather was the age you are now.
The reason that Scapegrace tastes clean is because it is.
Distilled by Rogue Society Distilling Co, Scapegrace is made from spring water sourced from the country’s Southern Alps and 12 botanicals from around the world - juniper, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, lemon peel, orange peel, orris, cinnamon, cassia, angelica, clove and liquorice. The spirit is batch-distilled using a restored 19th century copper whisky still, with each batch individually numbered.
Its name is a traditional word for rogue or rascal, and incorporates gin’s “murky history” with a black-tinted bottle – a shape based on an antique genever bottle.
Spicy juniper and clove arrive first, and are soon joined by refreshing lemon peels.
Juniper berries, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, lemon peel, orange peel, orris root, cinnamon, cassia, angelica, clove and liquorice.
Premium tonic garnished with sliced green apple.
