"This brand new recipe, which has been ever so carefully tweaked for a brighter and livelier flavour profile, retains the heady depth and pepper-forward spiciness of Batch No. 7, while developing existing notes of yuzu and pink grapefruit.
"You will also detect more Tahitian vanilla smoothness on the palate, along with delicate aromas of lavender and cardamom, all tied to an extra boost of piney juniper. While it feels like we say this every time - we think this might be the best batch yet!"
"Introducing the Kīlauea Negroni - a cocktail to really awaken your senses. A fiery tiki-inspired Negroni, named in honour of the famous volcano on Hawaii's Big Island, this variation brings a little Aloha spirit to the classic drink.
"Following Jenny's adventures in the island chain, exploring beaches and rainforests for her big birthday, she was inspired to mix this cocktail with a kick and bring those Hawaiian vibes back home.
"First blending Hidden Curiosities Gin, sweet vermouth and classic Campari, we've added smoky Mezcal and sweet Pineapple for a fiery and tropical flavour profile. To really put you on island time, we finish the blend with Hibiscus, Açaí & Long Pepper Bitters. We're sure you'll love this."

"Where do we start? Crowned Best Navy Strength at the World Gin Awards in 2020, received a GOLD medal at the IWSC awards in 2022 with an impressive 96/100, and to top it off, winning top marks with a hefty 3 stars at the Great Taste awards this year! Our multi-award-winning Aranami Strength gin is the fail-safe Christmas present for gin lovers.
"Tasting notes from the Great Taste awards this year: "This is a delightfully aromatic complex and nuanced gin. Clear as crystal with an elegantly inviting nose displaying a whisper of ripe juniper, bright and fresh citrus and a dancing hint of sansho pepper with lavender and violet florality. Smooth and silky at first with a velvety texture that suddenly steps up about three gears at once with vibrant peppery intensity! This is a true blockbuster of a gin, sensational!"
"Gaining a lot of coverage with gin bloggers and via social media, there's a reason why this gin has made an impression and blown other gins out of the water. Aranami - meaning Raging Waves in Japanese, is packed full of flavour from 7 Japanese botanicals. It not only tastes incredible simply with tonic, it makes exquisite tasting cocktails. Trust us, the lucky recipient will LOVE this."
"Gaining popularity after being introduced last year, this Negroni is our Christmassy twist on the year-round classic; old St. Nick is sure to appreciate a nip of this. Garnish with star anise and orange for a truly festive experience!"
