Keep your Gin up - McLaren Vale gin tour

Updated: Mar 26

It’s not always easy to keep your chin up in this crazy world, but thanks to the gin invasion into McLaren Vale, the abundance of gin options in the region has lifted spirits. This is a McLaren Vale gin tour.

Not only is South Australian gin highly coveted in Australia, it’s also making waves globally.

Recently McLaren Vale’s very own Ginny Pig Distillery was awarded “Best Overall Gin” at the San Francisco Spirit Awards held in Las Vegas.

Their Botanic Gin was the standout, winning the judges over with its lingering chilli pepper spice.

Keeping things spicy in the Vale, Never Never Distilling Co is another favourite amongst locals. Elevated next to Chalk Hill, overlooking the rolling hills of McLaren Vale, Never Never’s Ginache was awarded Australia’s best flavoured gin in 2022.

Partner N Wine highly recommends the food at Cucina di Strada, which is a nearby food truck, serving Never Never and Chalk Hill customers with some delicious pinsa.

The secret to a good pinsa is the rice wheat flour, which is a healthier alternative to pizza.

The less calories you consume at lunch, leaves room for another gin tasting at Settlers Spirits, which also specialises in masterclass experiences.

Becoming a distiller for the day is no mean feat, but thanks to the team at Settlers Spirits you will become an expert on botanicals in no time. This experience involves creating your own gin recipes and bottling your favourite blend to take home.

These three gin distilleries are all part of Partner N Wine’s gin tours. Be sure to contact Partner N Wine to book your gin tour today!
