Seven Seasons Release Native Bush Apple Gin

ADELAIDE | Distillers Seven Seasons, famed for their unique Green Ant Gin, have released a new spirit. Bush Apple Gin continues Seven Seasons’ theme of using unexpected, native ingredients in spirits, in line with seasonality.

Seven Seasons founder, Larrakia man and ex AFL player Daniel Motlop, started Seven Seasons based on the Larrakia people’s belief that there are seven seasons that are marked by the arrival of dragonflies, fruiting trees and other natural cycles. Daniel’s hope is to celebrate his people’s culture through his spirits, introducing a wider audience to new flavours and knowledge.

Bush Apple’s peak growing season is between January and March – monsoon season. When the heavy rains start, bush apples are collected from the tree tops and placed in harvesting buckets in Maningrida through Bawinanga, and from the Darwin area from the Motlop family.

Bush apples give this gin floral, berry and eucalyptus flavours. They also give it a wonderful pink hue. It works will in a variety of light, floral cocktails. Use it in a spritz, or a G&T garnished with white grapefruit and mint.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
