Three very lucky Beat readers will win a 700ml bottle of First Nations distillery Seven Seasons' Green Ant Gin, with an utterly delectable array of native Australian ingredients.
Green ants are added before and after distillation to give this gin a citrusy pop. The addition of boobialla brings coastal floral notes with a hint of sweetness; strawberry gum adds a touch of warm spice with eucalyptus on the nose and lemon myrtle and pepper berry add depth to the base citrus profile.
First Nations distillery Seven Seasons are the creation of Indigenous entrepreneur Daniel Motlop, who describes their backstory thus: “For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, nature is our clock, the stars are our calendar, and changes in the winds, plants and animals tell us the new season has arrived. Dragonflies announce the dry season and fruiting of native cherries. The green tree frog tells us the big wet is coming. And when the bum gets fat on the green bush ant, we know it’s ripe with juicy, citrus pop.”
