Nothing says ‘Spirit of Summer’ like gin distilled in Broome
Summer, it’s pure joy!
The beach is calling, and it’s the one call we’ll definitely be picking up. Hot days meander into warm nights and life just seems lighter when it’s bright outside.
What if you could distil the spirit of summer? And be transported to the tropics from simply lifting the lid?
That’s exactly what Moontide Distillery have done.
And it doesn’t take a huge stretch of the imagination to understand how this gin is a taste of a Western Australian summer in a glass, because it’s distilled in one of our most iconic sun soaked spots – Broome.
So much stunning Broome summer, they can bottle it
Broome is a summer destination without rival. You’d be hard pressed to think of anywhere more summer-y, from the “Stairway to Heaven”, world famous Cable Beach, the quintessential camel ride, Broome is where striking red dirt meets the ocean in a spectacularly pindan palette.
If you’re visiting Broome this summer (or even in the winter as you chase the sun), make sure you stop by Moontide Distillery for a tour and tasting – even better, it’s free. What a great way to beat the heat and learn more about the story between sips.
But if you can’t get to Broome, it can come to you in a bottle. Pop the lid and be whisked away to a beachside bar, the cool sand still drying on your toes, and a G&T lazily balanced in your hand.
Because what’s summer without a refreshing beverage?
The rising temps and all those fun outdoor activities you crave all winter have given you a thirst that can only be quenched by the tallest, coldest gin and tonic in the land. And for this kind of thirst, not any old gin will do.
Your palate craves the local tang of botanicals only a West Aussie gin can give you, and that means you need to try the Moontide Distillery White Pearl Gin.
This gin contains the regular staples of a London Dry style gin (Juniper Berries, Coriander) but it’s also infused with a unique blend of native botanicals Gubiny (Native Kakadu Plum), Guwarl (Native White Berry Bush), plus Mango, Tamarind, Lemon Myrtle, Quandong, and Sandalwood.
It’s crafted to reflect the charm, exoticism, and bold character of Broome, and one sniff will sweep you away to a tropical beach holiday – salt in your hair, a drink in your hand and a smile on your face.
Now THAT’s the spirit of summer!
One taste and your transported with this tropical tipple
Try it in a tall glass with heaps of ice, a couple of generous shots of White Pearl Gin, some Capi dry tonic and a slice of pink grapefruit to channel those summer vibes.
If you’re feeling a bit of cocktail action, this one’s perfect in a classic White Lady cocktail.
Not quite there yet and need even more Broome in your glass? Mix White Pearl Gin with Ginger Beer from iconic Broome brewery Mastos, add fresh lime and ice and voila!
Moontide’s pride & joy
Salivating over the White Pearl Gin? But wait, there’s more – you can sip summery with Moontide’s Pride Tide Gin!
Sling some ice in a glass and pour Pride Tide Gin with a traditional Indian tonic (like Fevertree) and garnish with a wedge of pineapple.
This one’s more fruity – with Pineapple, Coconut and Passionfruit building on the standard botanicals of Juniper and Coriander, and with native Gubiny (Native Kakadu Plum), Quandong, and Sandalwood.
There’s pure Kimberley monsoonal rainwater in every bottle of Moontide – the essence of the tropics that forms the crisp backbone of refreshment!
How will you be getting into the spirit of summer?
