In the world of gin, innovation and surprise are always welcome. Enter Eliksir Gin's remarkable creation: Blood Orange Gin. Crafted with an innovative combination of vapour infusion and pot distillation techniques, this clear gin defies expectations and delivers an extraordinary sensory experience that leaves a lasting impression.

"People often ask why is it clear?" said Robbie Ladbrook the founder of Eliksir Gin. "I explain that when it comes to creating a tasty but classic gin it is all bout meticulously crafting the flavours not only through the ingredients but also the distillation process. Our combination of vapour infusion and pot distillation techniques, creates a level of smoothness and fruity character that is truly exceptional and doesn't have the sharp bitterness that can be an issue if you simply infuse the oranges in gin".  

"What also sets Eliksir Gin's Blood Orange Gin apart is the use of Feijoa (also known as pineapple guava). This addition introduces a distinct tropical twist that harmonizes beautifully with the vibrant citrus flavors of the blood oranges along with green cardamom that lends a subtle aromatic spice that tantalizes the senses. Native pepper berry that we harvest ourselves adds the perfect finishing touch with a captivating peppery finish that showcases the unique flavors of our region" continues Robbie.

Not only gin enthusiasts, but also renowned chefs have been captivated by Eliksir Gin's Blood Orange Gin. Its unparalleled complexity has inspired chefs to explore its culinary potential in remarkable ways. From using it to cure trout to elevating crème fraîche and even creating a special gin gelato, the versatility of this gin knows no bounds with hospitality venues in the Riverina and Snowy Valleys. 

Eliksir Gin's Blood Orange Gin is truly causing a stir among gin enthusiasts. Sourced from a family farm in Leeton, NSW, this exceptional creation captures the essence of Riverina blood oranges in a way that surprises and delights. "We met the Ianelli family at the Leeton Art Deco Festival in 2022 and have been sourcing our citrus from them since."

The distillery also recently launched another innovative product in January this year in collaboration with the visit Wagga Wagga team. The dried botanicals from the production of this gin were repurposed into a culinary gin salt which makes the perfect meat rub or seasoning. 

Whether you're a gin connoisseur looking for a new adventure or a culinary enthusiast eager to explore unique flavor combinations, Eliksir Gin's Blood Orange Gin is a must-try.
