unique distillation method
Méthode eau de vie
This gin was handcrafted from scratch using our 'Méthode Eau de Vie' - the art of distilling wine into spirit.
Here at Bass & Flinders we are dedicated to the true art of distillation. This means that rather than source neutral ethanol externally as the base spirit for this product, we choose to go the extra mile and distil our own premium grape-based spirit from scratch, in-house.
This technique unique to Bass & Flinders Distillery products we refer to as our Méthode Eau de Vie.
The ultimate spirit
unique to us
Our process starts in the Victorian vineyards, where in conjunction with our winemaker, we have a say in the sugar levels, ripeness of fruit, PH and acidity - because all these elements - at the right levels - combine to create the perfect wine needed to distil into our grape spirit.
This grape spirit is called eau de vie - French for 'Water of Life'. This base spirit is the lifeline and foundation for every product we produce. It tells a story of the vintage and vineyards it was sourced from and delivers a smoother, fuller, richer base to deliver the ultimate gin experience.
