The party season is the perfect excuse to discover a new signature drink. The pick this summer? A Tasmanian gin with a citrus burst.


Move over frosé, negroni and spritzes – this new home-grown tipple is a serious contender to become the drink of summer ’19/’20. Gin has been one of the biggest drinks trends in recent years as distillers have become increasing­ly creative with botanicals and other ingredient­s. Now Forty Spotted Australian Citrus Gin has raised the bar with a fresh take that’s perfectly suited to long, hot days and balmy nights. Blending juicy orange and complex pine notes with the more traditiona­l flavour of juniper berries, the artisanal Tasmanian gin is equal parts elegant and refreshing. Serve with plenty of ice, a generous splash of dry tonic, and a slice and a squeeze of freshly cut orange (see the recipe, below) for a playful yet sophistica­ted twist on a classic gin and tonic that’s worthy of being the signature drink at any summer soirée.
