Scapegrace ‘Uncommon’ is the latest category from the homegrown heroes. Offered as a limited range of spirits cultivated following a craft-distilling ethos, ‘Uncommon’ will become the fifth product tier from the prolific company.
Scapegrace plans to introduce new limited releases to the market every six months. With only 3,000 individually numbered bottles available, this latest release – and those that follow – will quickly become sought-after collectors’ editions.
Showing true diversity to New Zealand’s playground of seasonal produce and botanicals, the first exclusive release looks at two completely different styles, from different regions at different periods of their harvest season. The Central Otago Early Harvest and Hawkes Bay Late Harvest.
Each rare gin has a distinct botanical profile inspired by the region, including the diverse collection of nectarine, lavender, smoked hay and pollen from Central Otago, and raspberry leaf, pear and olive brine from Hawkes Bay.
Scapegrace Uncommon Central Otago Late Harvest Gin has botanicals of Raspberry Leaf, Pear and Olive Brine. Taking inspiration from the Hawkes Bay in the late harvest, this rare gin provides slightly sweet, tart with savoury flavours.
Light amber colour. Fresh pear & citrus on the nose. Initial palate is clean and textural rolling into fleshy pear and aromatic olive & raspberry leaf. Dry, textured finish with subtle fresh raspberry seeing it out.
Serve with premium yuzu tonic over ice or in a Martini cocktail with a kaffir lime leaf garnish
