 Wild at heart, this is our uniquely Australian take on the very British classic that is Sloe Gin, a delicious aperitif, neat over ice or a unique player with your mixer of choice. West Winds Wild Plum brings together the warmth and earthy backbone of a carefully made spirit with native Davidson plums and sloe berries, an elegant partnership of colour, flavour and spice that produces a subtle sweet-and-sour sensation Give them all three months to get to know each other, add a little Banksia honey, and the result is one of the most awarded flavoured gins, ever

(39% ABV)

Our take on Flavoured Gins

The Name comes from the use of two different plums, the Native Australian Davidson Plum and Sloe Berries, which are technically plums. The gins big flavour come from the combination of these two fruit.

We first built a completely new gin. With the knowledge that this gin was eventually going to be flavoured we wanted to built a gin that earthy and warm.

Starting with a sound base of Juniper, Liquorice root and Angelica Root we add Native Australian Anise Myrtle and Orange Peel. This be Anise and Orange combination gives the gin a great warmth.

After we made the gin we infused it with Australian Davidson Plum and Sloe Berries. The Davidson plums bring a beautiful sour stone fruit note, while the sloe berries fortify the fruit flavour with stewed fruit character.

We allow the fruit to steep for 3 months, enough time to extract the beautiful fresh flavours, but not long enough to lead to those astringent notes.

To finish we lightly sweeten the gin with Banksia Honey from the Swan Valley to lift the fruit characters and give it some sweetness.

Make the perfect serve Gin&Soda, with 2 parts premium soda to 1 part Wild Plum Gin. Garnish with a slice of fresh Orange.

My sister loves this gin.

An excellent gin, even for someone who hasn't liked most berry gins

It's been a while since I had this but I'll do my best to remember. The one overriding memory I have of this is that it WAS NOT sickly sweet. Not even slightly. I remember them using Davidson plums, I think, and they are Aussie plums and naturally rather tart.

I wouldn't say they made the gin overly sour but there was definitely an edge of sourness in it. It's entirely up to the drinker, of course, but I personally wouldn't recommend this as a martini gin. You could sip it straight, or on ice, as it is fairly similar in ABV, (39%), compared to most spirits.

As stated it'll definitely have a tartness as you sip. Overall it's well balanced, though, they made sure it doesn't get too sour either. If you can mix it with something sweeter, you might end up with a very balanced drink. Perhaps this is the one time you don't want a really bitter/low sugar tonic water.

Strangelove Tonic No. 8 is really good as is standard Fevertree or their Mediterranean. The colour will be amazing. As you can imagine, going lighter on the gin, when pouring, results in a very light pink cocktail. Looks incredible in the sunset.

Overall, even though berry guns are still not my thing, I can safely say The West Winds are good enough to make one that I deemed an exception to my 'no berry' rule.

One of my favourite gins

The wild plum gin is one of my favourite gins. The flavour is delicious either straight over ice or with a mixer of your choice. I will definitely be purchasing again.

Davidson plum done well

Delightful gin - really enjoy the flavours neat over ice, but also fresh with a quality tonic water. A very ‘bright’ offering that I will repurchase.
