44.8% ABV. The advent of a full-time distillery team triggered an explosion of ideas and experimentation and has now spawned a new label: Animus Test Pressing. After months of blood, sweat and Gin at the distillery, we're now able to offer Animus' first Test Pressing: Ananas Gin.
Although pineapple is notoriously hard to capture as a distillate, undeterred, Sarah and Luke played with a recipe to the point where almost three-quarters of the entire botanical load was dedicated to pineapple. Fresh ginger, turmeric and galangal introduce a spicy counterpoint to the sweet, fresh acidity of the pineapple. For complexity there's lemongrass, lemon verbena and kaffir lime--all picked and prepared on the day of production--and ground sesame seeds to enhance the Gin's oily, textural mouthfeel. Finally, to ramp up the total pineapple experience, the flesh and rinds of fresh pineapples were infused in a single 400-litre vat of the Gin for eight months, until there was the perfect balance between distillate and fruit infusion.
Crystal clear and bottled without any additions, it is a restrained, tightly balanced Gin that moves from sweet to spicy to floral and back again: it's perfect neat, pairs brilliantly with tonic and works a treat in cocktails.
