Manly Australian Dry Gin
Manly Spirits have had a big old year since making their UK debut in Spring. The gin is outrageously good looking, but it's so much more than clever branding. It's a juniper-strong gin with a little umami hin, brought in my hand-plucked Sea Lettuce from the Manly coast. Completely unusual and utterly brilliant.
If using Indian Tonic:
Contrast through the slight anise-like finish hit with a lime wedge.
