FORAGER 1 ● 24.0% ABV ● 700ml Bottle
After countless drowsy tasting nights and plenty of failed experiments, we settled on combination we'd scribbled down as 'E1v2+S1:1', later renamed 'Forager 1' as a reminder of how we'd started. The result? A bittersweet liqueur made with a blend of dried oranges, roasted Wattleseed and earthy roots. These native and exotic botanicals are infused in spirit distilled from Australian sugar cane and blended with a spot of earthy red wine. Recycling 101 Creating our own spirit also helped solve one of our pet hates - waste! When we make our tasting flights, we generate a lot of empty glass bottles. Although these get responsibly recycled, we knew there had to be a better use for them. So instead of buying new bottles for Forager 1, we've also foraged the damn bottles themselves from our very own tasting set production line. We strip the labels off (sometimes easier said than done) and give them a hardcore hot rinse before a quick polish to rejuvenate them back to life.
