Wine lovers rejoice! There is a new set of gins in town made with the best grapes from Tempus Two lovingly crafted into your favourite spirit.
If you’re a gin fan and a purveyor of fine wines, you’ll revel in the release of Tempus Two Gin, which comes in three tasty varieties: Prosecco Gin, Shiraz Gin and Wild Botanical Gin.
Their first batch of wine-inspired gins has just hit the shelves and just in time for World Gin Day on 11 June.
Taking their winemaking expertise to the next level, the Tempus Two team have distilled gin from quality grape wine spirit base to launch a new range of premium gins with a uniquely Australian twist. The Tempus Two Cellar Door is located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, just a two-hour drive north of Sydney. So it was only natural they have added native Australian botanicals to the bottles.
Tempus Two Gin is made from premium wine using a combination of traditional and non-traditional extraction and distillation methods. The distinctive characteristics of each varietal are captured by creating a wine spirit base using the latest spinning cone technology, before infusing the botanicals. Making each bottle unique to taste and ripe for trying.
Tempus Two is proud to say they do things differently and don’t follow tradition. And their gin range certainly proves just that. Introducing…
Tempus Two Prosecco Gin
Proudly the world’s first Prosecco wine-based gin. Rather than using grain, Tempus Two have created a gin from Prosecco wine spirit distilled with juniper berries, coriander, orange peel and rosebuds. Elevated by the infusion of these botanicals, the Prosecco wine spirit becomes a delicate gin with a touch of light green tree fruit flavours. Lovers of bubbles will adore Tempus Two Prosecco Gin as it is soft and floral, ideal for making an elegant G&T or refined cocktail.
Tempus Two Shiraz Gin
Sweet and peppery, added botanicals elevates Tempus Two Shiraz Gin beyond its base flavours of red berry fruits. Made from Shiraz wine grapes, including the Shiraz wine sprit base and the jammy Shiraz juice that is extracted, it is then distilled and infused with juniper berries, coriander and orange peel. This creates an opulent spirit with a rich sweetness bursting with flavours of raspberry, forest fruits and spice, with a deep ruby red colour.
Tempus Two Wild Botanical Gin
A punchy gin packed with juniper and infused with native botanicals found in the Australian bush. Tempus Two Wild Botanical Gin is a full-flavoured gin ideal for the gin-enthusiast. Infused with the classic flavours of juniper and coriander and balanced with native Australian botanicals: desert limes, saltbush, and wattleseed. And a hint of orange peel. This creates an earthiness and a hint of saltiness for an an intense but well-rounded ‘Gin lovers Gin’.
Each Tempus Two Gin style has its own personality. Although all are equally delicious depending on your favourite tipple. From a classic G&T, that works well for each gin style, to a signature cocktail, there is one for every occasion.
