G&T: Gilbert + Tobin
It was our absolute pleasure, delight and good fortune to gain the privilege of connecting with Mr Williamson-Noble of Gilbert + Tobin Lawyers, Australia.
Thanks to our Underground super salesman/distiller/scientists Andy & Ross we were able to procure a very unique scope of work for a pioneering law-firm. This opportunity was undoubtedly perfect for us, we love discovering new terrain!
Mr Williamson-Noble had a corporate spirits production goal in mind and it was relatively straight-forward. He wanted to impress, finesse and overall improve the end-of-year Christmas present packages to domestic and international recipients. He also wanted to create a fixture of an exciting event (such as at the yearly International Bar Association), year in and year out, to reflect the contemporary corporate culture at Gilbert & Tobin.
For us, the scope was easy and exciting. With a legal firm name like ‘Gilbert + Tobin’, the acronym of G&T was just begging to be crafted into a bespoke, unique Gin. So who better to do it than Underground? We put our heads together, trialed and tested many, and ultimately came up with a pure, 100% original recipe, totally unique to Gilbert & Tobin.
We started with a base gin and then presented premium individually distilled botanicals for a bespoke flavor impact. After the Gilbert + Tobin team chose their favourites, we then blended with precise measurements, balancing according to preference and taste.
Of course, we can’t say too much about the secret solicitors’ recipe, but we can disclose that it contains cucumber, cinnamon, pink grapefruit and rose: a refined and eclectic mix for a forward-thinking firm.
It was showcased at the 2017 International Bar Association and was very well-received, and of course the perfectly apt ‘G&T’ was not lost on event guests!
Thanks for this wonderful opportunity Mr Williamson-Noble – here’s to you.
