Last weekend was all about gin. South Australian craft gin to be precise.
It was World Gin Day last Saturday, and it was just another reminder HOW AMAZING the South Aussie gin scene is.
Given we’re ‘The Gin State’, it’s our duty as Radeladians to explore who’s creating the best, and most creative gins.
Our SA distilleries are not only popular with locals but they’ve also garnered major buzz overseas.
So, in honour of World Gin Day, we thought we would get you acquainted with a new kid on the scene in SA’s gin industry, Ginny Pig Distillery.
Launching in May of this year amongst all the COVID-19 madness, Ginny Pig Distillery was started Craig and Bec, a husband and wife duo who have always dreamt of starting up their own micro-distillery.
Nurses by trade, Bec and Craig started off by producing seasonal gins, a hot cross bun gin for Easter and an incredibly popular Christmas gin.
Since officially launching, they have released three unique and incredibly flavoursome gins that are sure to tickle the fancy of any G&T aficionado out there.
Ginny Pig Distillery’s range includes a beautifully crisp traditional dry gin, a blueberry & vanilla gin which is certainly one of those who enjoy their gin a little on the sweeter side and your all-new favourite-a spiced fig gin with notes of cinnamon and ginger.
These guys even make their own edible garnishes such as dehydrated oranges and grapefruit to compliment your G&T.
Based in Flagstaff Hill on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, they do not currently have a tasting room, however, you can sample their mouthwatering gin range at the Adelaide Farmer’s Market where they will be on Sunday 21 and 28 June.
As a special World Gin Day treat, they will be throwing in a free mixed garnish pack with every purchase made today, so, if you’re a gin lover who is looking to try something new, check out the Ginny Pig Distillery range here.
