Adelaide Hills Distillery has burst onto the mainstream stage recently with its 78 Degrees Sunset Gin.

Its 78 Degrees Sunset Gin won Bronze at the 2019 World Gin Awards.

“Summer flowers, roses and red fruits, hints of grapefruit, hibiscus that continue onto finish with anise, liquorice. Interesting.”

Much like its name, this Gin is an ode to summer nights watching the last rays of sun disappear over the horizon.

The Gin also triggers memories of relaxing in the warm summer air on a far-away beach listening to the sounds of laughter echo on the wind.

It is safe to say that this Gin is a summer Gin and not as suited to a cold night snuggled up next to the fireplace. Yet, it is still a decent gin for all occasions and is very easy to drink regardless.


From the outset this gin offers a fruity flavour. For me, the dominant tastes are of red berries. Distinctly, I can taste hints of Strawberry and Watermelon.

This Gin leaves a sweet aftertaste.

How to Serve

I would serve this Gin in regular G&T and with garnishes of Strawberry and Mint.

I recommend drinking this with a Plain Tonic Water, so as to avoid mixing flavours and taking away from the fruitiness of the Gin.

My go-to tonic for this would be the Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water as it conveys the flavours well.

The Score

78 Degrees Sunset Gin scored a 7/10 for me.

I personally am not a fan of sweeter Gins, however I can imagine myself drinking this Gin on a beach in summer.

Nonetheless, it is a refreshing gin with well crafted flavours that is sure to be a crowd pleaser, especially for those with a sweet tooth.

Tanqueray Malacca Gin Review

Score: 9/10

Price: Approx. $80 AUD

Tanqueray is well known for producing some of the best Gins in the world.

It has been producing Gin for around 200 years and is best known for its London Dry Gin. Tanqueray’s London Dry Gin won double gold at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards in 2015.

Tanqueray Malacca doesn’t disappoint either.

It sits at 41.3% ABV and has a distinctive mix of Rose, Peppercorn and Clove.

It is named after the Straits of Malacca

The Strait of Malacca is a narrow shipping channel that sits between the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian Island of Sumatra. Tanqueray Malacca is an ode to long nights spent on Malaysian beaches.

For those who have travelled to these beautiful corners of the world, Tanqueray Malacca offers a beautiful sentiment to distinctive flavours of the region.


From the outset, Tanqueray Malacca impresses. It’s softened Juniper flavour gives way to delicate forms of rose and the aftertaste leaves the peppercorn as a signature touch.

Tanqueray Malacca can be considered a sweetened and more aromatic version of the famous Tanqueray London Dry Gin.

How to serve

This gin is best served with a slice of Lime. I recommend enjoying it with a plain tonic as an aromatic or infused tonic will take away from the delicate flavours already in the Malacca Gin.

This being said I personally recommend either the Schweppes Signature Series Mixers Bright Tonic or the Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water.

The Score

Tanqueray Malacca is an easy Gin to drink and pairs perfectly with many meals. Its unique blend of botanicals and its delicate tastes is refined for a more mature palate.

It is a Gin the deserves to be appreciated. For this reason, it scores a 9/10 from me and is a staple of my Gin collection.

Botanic Australis Navy Strength Gin Review

Mt Uncle Distillery Botanic Australis Navy Strength Gin

Score: 8.5/10

Price: Approx. $100 AUD

This native botanical gin packs a punch at 57% ABV. It is an Australian gin that contains native botanicals. The driving flavour is citrus and Eucalyptus that is complemented by a lingering note of ginger that sits on the tongue.

This gin is perfect for an afternoon at the beach or to relax in front of your favourite movie or even by the fire after a long days work. Despite Botanic Australis Navy Strength being a relatively expensive gin at around $100 a bottle it is a must have for any gin-lovers collection.

I recommend pairing this gin with Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water as this enhances the flavours of this gin.

The gin has 14 Native Botanicals

  1. Juniper
  2. Peppermint Gum
  3. Anise Myrtle
  4. Wattle Seed
  5. Cinnamon Myrtle
  6. Pepper Berry
  7. Lemon Myrtle
  8. Lilly Pilly
  9. Lemon Scented Gum
  10. Olida
  11. Finger Lime
  12. Native Gum
  13. River Mint
  14. Bunya Nut
