New map highlights over 100 Australian/NZ gin producers
Artisan gins are all the rage right now in Australia and Martin von Wyss and his team, who have worked on several iconic wine maps, have just released the first Gin & Botanicals Map of Australia & New Zealand.
Not sure where Sud Polaire is based? Unsure of where to find Hippocampus? The map will tell you and also features text written by drinks expert David Box, author of the upcoming reference book Antipodean Gin. It shows the locations of 101 gin brands, distillers and producers, discusses 10 indigenous botanicals found in gins from Australia and New Zealand, their qualities described in words and with their geographical distributions mapped. There are also drawings of native botanical plants by illustrator Liene Drulle. The price of the map is $14.95 plus the cost of postage and packaging. Flat maps are posted in a tube, folded maps are folded and posted in an envelope. The perfect Christmas present for any spirits lover? For details and orders see www.australianwinemaps.com.au.
