Seppeltsfield Road Distillers have announced the release of their award-winning fourth vintage of the popular SRD Shiraz Gin, which has been ranked as the #1 flavoured gin in Australia, also taking home a staggeringly impressive second spot in the world rankings.
The Shiraz Gin received gold in both the World Gin Masters and International Wine & Spirits Competition, celebrated for its premium Barossa Shiraz grapes, macerated for 6 – 8 weeks in SRD’s internationally awarded House Gin.
Ginthusiasts can also visit the stunning Seppeltsfield Road Distillers’ cellar door to try SRD’s newest cocktail creation, the oh-so-poetically named ‘Murder on the Cellar Floor. SRD’s Shiraz Gin
2021’s vintage offers delicious flavours of chocolate-coated blueberries, cinnamon and ripe satsuma plums delivering vibrant, bright and rich Shiraz fruit characteristics. This latest release of the Shiraz Gin has a drier finish than previous releases, differing from the orange, citrus characters of the 2020 vintage.
The luscious combination can be enjoyed neat, with a cube of ice or a splash of tonic, paired with a slice of lime, or tried in your favourite gin cocktail for a twist.
The perfect serving suggestion to create your own ‘Murder on the Cellar Floor’ at home:
45ml 2021 Shiraz Gin
30ml yellow grapefruit juice
15ml lime juice
15ml agave syrup
Shake all together and fine strain the mixture into a small number over ice.
Slide a twist of grapefruit along the rim of the glass before dropping in the number to garnish and serve immediately.
The highly awarded Shiraz Gin is by far from the first accolade awarded to Seppeltsfield Road Distillers, who have an impressive portfolio of more than 60 awards in less than three years of operation, including international recognition from the London Spirits Competition, International Wine and Spirits Competition and the World Gin Masters as well as the national Tasting Australia Spirit Awards.
Get your hands on the 2021 Shiraz Gin through the SRD Tasting Room or their online shop here, or premium BWS and independent bottle shops in SA.
A bottle of the 2021 Shiraz will set you back $80 for a 500ml bottle, at 38.5% ABV.
The Barossa tasting room is open 7 days a week from 11 – 5 for a delicious tasting flight that includes the new Shiraz Gin.
You can book your tasting flight here.
