Montalto Batch Three - Limited Edition
For the last two years, we’ve collaborated with one of our local heroes here on the Peninsula - Montalto - to create their extremely popular limited edition gin. After selling out Batch One and Two, the latest release - 'Batch Three' is available now.
Key members of the Montalto team participated in a very special blending session. The aim: to create another unique, limited edition, handmade gin highlighting the incredible ingredients found throughout Wendy’s Garden.
“We love creating new gin blends with Montalto as it gives us an opportunity to work with the seasons using local produce from their own garden. Welcoming the team back to work on the second release together was such a wonderful experience, with Julie Bennett able to provide her unmatched knowledge and understanding of their estate gardens, which gave us all a deeper understanding of the different botanical profiles we were working with. With our combined knowledge, and such a beautiful array of locally harvested produce to work with, it was really something special to see the deep connection between the gin itself, and their property, come together to create such an exceptional end product.” says our very own Holly Klintworth, Managing Director and Head Distiller at Bass & Flinders Distillery.
Distilled in collaboration with Bass & Flinders: raspberry, orange and hibiscus rosella from Montalto's home estate create a bright lifted fruit infused gin where the raspberry plays off floral notes aromatically, and citrus tones on the palate create a perfectly refreshing accompaniment.
Montalto is a family-owned estate where produce is grown, shared and celebrated - just down the road from us here at Bass & Flinders. This gin has been handcrafted using our distinctive ‘Méthode Eau de Vie’ – the art of distilling wine into spirit – delivering a smoother, fuller, richer flavour.
We definitely recommend Montalto Gin Batch Three in a simple, refreshing gin and tonic so you can really taste the distinctive flavours of the Montalto estate. But really, it’s the perfect gin for anytime, any way you like it.
Just in time for summer!
