A Twist on a Daisy

The Gin Daisy has seen a few forms, traditionally a gin sour with the addition of soda water or a dash of grenadine. This version from the mind of Bec at Darwin Distilling Co. is a refreshing, sweet twist on the classic, with floral Creme de Violette and icing sugar. Highlighting the floral notes of Darwin Gin's water lily and Kakadu Plum botanicals, this is a thirst-quencher to rival the humble homemade lemonade.

- 30ml Darwin Distilling Co. Darwin Gin 
- Juice of 1/2 lemon (Meyers are best)
- 1/4 teaspoon icing sugar
- 15ml Crème de Violette
- 15ml D.O.M Benedictine
- Soda water

- Fresh mint leaves

Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice. Pour into a chilled highball glass filled with ice, top with soda water, and garnish with a sprig of mint. Refreshing!

Garden Street Collector's Series Edition One

This gin is a nod to you, our members. We’ve tasted hundreds of delicious Australian gins over the years and every year our tasting panel has the (really terrible) job of choosing their 12 favourite gins to share with you. It’s tough competition and they’re a very picky bunch!

Twelve months ago, we floated the idea of making something exclusively for our members; something one off and never to be repeated. It needed to be something for the collectors to add to their gin shelves and moreover, we had to make a product we were proud to share, and one delicious enough to get past our tasting panel!
