Tasting Notes for Never Never Triple Juniper Gin
Aroma: Pine needle, brushed rosemary, lemon oil, earthy root vegetable extending into fragrant pepper.
Taste: Bright citrus character up front. Oily and intense, prominent juniper, supported by earthy undertones and wooded spice.
Finish: Luxurious and long with a rich creaminess which quickly dries out.
Never Never Distilling Co’s signature Triple Juniper Gin combines three different distillation processes, each uncovering the bright and earthy qualities of juniper. Juniper is firstly steeped for approximately 24 hours. This steep, along with fresh juniper is then added to the still prior to pot distillation. Lastly, more juniper is added to the vapour basket to capture the fresh and floral juniper character.
Eight other botanicals are included - coriander seed, angelica root, orris root, lemon peel, lime peel, liquorice root, cinnamon and Australian pepper berry.
Light clouding occurs due to the copious amounts of juniper used.

Founded in 2016 by three friends, George Georgiadis, Tim Boast and Sean Baxter, this distillery set out to shake up the Australian spirits industry, drive innovation, embrace adventure and to harness the fearless spirit required to go where none have been before.
Juniper is at the heart of all Never Never gins and they distil their juniper in three ways using our triple juniper method:
1. Juniper is steeped in the spirit for 24 hours.
2. Fresh juniper is added to the spirit from step 1, and it's then distilled in a pot still.
3. Juniper is added to the vapour basket of the still.
Their still of choice is a 300L copper pot, heated with a pressurised water-filled stainless-steel jacket and electric elements, ideal for a small start-up. Equipped with flexible 5-plate rectification column and gin vapour basket. This gives flexibility in terms of what can be created. After extensive sampling and comparative blind tastings, the selection went to a wheat-based spirit, which is a little different for a SA distiller.
It is with these values and methodology that set Never Never Distilling Co. apart from the crowd and they have quickly become recognised far and wide as being fearless with flavour – picking up a number of accolades along the way. One of which includes winning the World’s Best Classic Gin with their Southern Strength Gin at the World Gin Awards 2019.
