Joadja Distillery proudly announce that Her Excellency, The Governor of NSW, Margaret Beazley AC QC has chosen Joadja Dry Gin (Highland Gin blend) as a gift to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on behalf of the people of New South Wales for the Platinum Jubilee of The Queen.
“The gift from the people of NSW is a bottle of gin, distilled from Australian botanicals, and crafted by the award-winning Joadja Distillery in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.”
“It has been personally delivered to Her Majesty by the NSW Agent-General in London.”
In late 2019, Joadja Distillery were commissioned by Government House Sydney to prepare a Dry Gin which reflected the aromas and flavours of New South Wales. The result was a Dry Gin expression containing a blend of traditional botanicals (Juniper, Coriander, Angelica Root, Cardamom Pods, Aniseed) and Australian botanicals (Lemon Myrtle, Mountain Pepper, Strawberry Gum, Cinnamon Myrtle and Anise Myrtle). This Gin is now available as our Joadja Highland Gin.
On 13th February 2020, we were honoured to have Her Excellency, Margaret Beazley AC QC, The Governor of New South Wales, and Mr Dennis Wilson, visit Joadja Distillery and Historic site. The Governor was given a tour of the 718-acre historic Joadja site which included an adventurous 4WD creek crossing!
About Highland Gin
As we were unable to sell the special designed label including the NSW crest, commissioned for the NSW Governor office, we decided to rebrand and launch the same blend as our Joadja Highland Gin in March 2021.
With Joadja being home to hundreds of native species of flora and fauna, this blend was created to help fund conservation projects. With this in mind, Joadja Highland Gin champions native Australian botanicals including Strawberry Gum, Mountain Pepper, Lemon Myrtle, Cinnamon Myrtle and Anise Myrtle, all of which capture the essence of the land that is home to Joadja Distillery.
Joadja Highland Gin has been produced in the London Dry Style and created as a tribute to Joadja Valley and the Southern Highlands. Using pristine water from our on-site spring, each botanical is distilled separately to produce ten infusions that are then carefully blended to create a balance of flavours and a truly unique Joadja Highland Gin.
Perfectly served with a flavoured tonic water (Fever Tree Mediterranean, Strange Love) and garnished with fresh lime and a sprig of rosemary or thyme.
Botanicals: Juniper, Aniseed whole, Angelica Root, Cardamom, Coriander, Lemon Myrtle, Strawberry Gum, Mountain Pepper, Cinnamon Myrtle and Anise Myrtle.
