Dancing Sands Wasabi Strength Gin

Dancing Sands Wasabi Strength Gin

  • Wasabi Gin
  • New Zealand, 700ml

An initial wasabi kick greets you, carried by the underlying juniper berries. Orange and almonds balance the wasabi and horopito leaves creating a gentle warming. The beauty in this gin is the kelp that creates a long salty and savoury finish.

  • Distillery: Dancing Sands
  • Type: Wasabi infused Gin
  • Region: Golden Bay, New Zealand
  • Alcohol: 58%
  • Volume: 700ml
  • Goes with: Ice, premium tonic

Wasabi root, grown locally in Golden Bay is the inspiration for how a navy strength gin (58% ABV) should taste.  You may have not tasted real wasabi root before. It is not as hot as the artificial wasabi pastes and has much more plant flavour. Wasabi titillates the back of your mouth and nasal area and has a hit but does not linger. 

Ben and Sarah Bonoma moved to New Zealand after falling in love over a long distance relationship and found themselves in simply the most stunning place on the planet: Golden Bay, New Zealand. They traded in their corporate careers for a still and a plan: to bring the most stunning place on the planet to the world by creating an attention grabbing range of spirits and break all of the rules in the process.

From the natural landscapes with marbled mountains to golden sandy beaches to the beautiful water, everything is a little bit better in Golden Bay. Where the aquas are more aqua and blues are more blue, even the light gives us a brighter beginning. The Dancing Sands Spring at Te Waikoropupu Springs is the clearest spring in the world, with incredible under water visibility at a crisp 11 degrees C, and the purity of the spring serves as inspiration for everything they do.

Ben and Sarah use the name Dancing Sands to remind themselves to never take for granted the gifts that nature has bestowed upon us.
