Karu Distillery Lightning Gin

$99.95

Karu Distillery Lightning Gin

Lightning Gin – World’s Best Contemporary Gin in the IWSC.
Navy Strength Gin
700ml 57.5% ABV

“Layered and compelling, juniper and spice run alongside other botanicals. Great mouthfeel with citrus at the fore and good botanical boldness. With added water, the floral parts open up a lot with waves of spice.” – 98 points International Wines & Spirits Competition 2021

Are you ready to be struck by Lightning Gin?

Our unconventionally smooth navy strength gin boasts double Juniper and a slightly drier profile compared to its sibling, Affinity. Featuring triple citrus tiers of herbaceous Lemon Myrtle, bitter Ruby Grapefruit, and sweet Mandarin, however, Rose Geranium is the standout botanical here. Picked fresh from our own distillery garden, our Rose Geranium provides a lingering composition of beautiful herbaceous and floral notes. Finally, a mild buzz fills your lips whilst notes of garden rain remain from the freshly collected mountain rainwater.

Enjoy in a tall Gin & Tonic or, to get the full effect, pour a nip into your glass, add a drop of water or cube of ice and let this gin open right up.

Paired Tonics: Capi – Native Tonic, Strange Love – Light Tonic, Strange Love – Very Mandarin Soda, Fever Tree – Indian Tonic, Fever-Tree – Elderflower Tonic, Poaches – Indian, Barker & Quinn – Honeybush and Orange Tonic.

Garnishes: Ruby Grapefruit, Burnt Orange, Pineapple and Chili.

ABOUT KARU DISTILLERY
Karu Distillery was established in 2017 by husband-and-wife team, Nick & Ally. With the dream of creating a unique Australian small-batch spirits range, they wanted to push the boundaries while holding focus on the art & science of distillation. Since Karu’s emergence onto the scene in late 2018 we have earned several local and international awards, including a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards within our first 6 months of production.

We passionately believe that quality, sustainability, and passion are the essential ingredients to what we do. To view our full range head to our Shop page.

WHY KARU?
Karu is the Estonian word for bear. Bears hold a special place in our hearts with our distillers’ family heritage coming from Estonia. Bears spiritually stand from strength rather than speed, are fearless, and also symbolise introspection & intuition blended with instinct. It’s all these combined qualities that embody what drives the team at Karu Distillery.

We are focusing on producing boutique craft products that have a strength of flavour and character rather than creating products in mass.
We are fearless in aiming to deliver the best and we take on any challenge presented to us.
We have the introspection to look back with pride and humility to constantly improve.
We follow our intuition and instinct when it comes to making the next leap with our products.
This is why we are Karu Distillery….
