Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin
Ben, an American, and Sarah, a Brit, moved to New Zealand after falling in love over a long distance relationship. Many kilometers later, they found themselves in simply the most stunning place on the planet: Golden Bay, New Zealand. After trading in America and the UK for New Zealand, it was time to trade in corporate careers and keyboards for a still and a plan: bring the most stunning place on the planet to the world by creating an attention grabbing range of spirits and break all of the rules in the process.
The huge oak flavour shines through with hints of sweetness drawn from the rum casks. You’ll also recognise our signature hints of juniper, manuka and spice with the peppercorns and cardamom leading the way. Aged for 3 months, two types of casks were hand-selected: used 14-year Murderer’s Bay Gold Rum barrels and new French Oak barrels. The resulting gin is exceptional. Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin is blended and bottled at 48% abv. It is a beautiful champagne colour.
A big oak flavour greets you, followed by toasted cinnamon and a lingering sweetness. This gin was aged for 3 months in new French Oak and once used rum casks, creating a unique flavour profile.
