Continuing our collaboration with the Australian National Botanic Gardens, we introduce to you Ad Crescendum var Infusionem Native Gin. An uniquely Australian experience, this gin was born from a need to further discover the abundance of local botanicals grown in conservation at the Gardens. In search of other botanicals and how they can create a new flavour. With the help of horticulturist for the gardens, Underground Spirits set out to learn even more about amazing botanicals, the conditions where they grow and thrive and their traditional uses in Indigenous culture. This time the inspiration came from brewing botanicals, and what has been done for centuries, and learnt by europeans arriving in Australia as well. This expressive gin serves as testament to the long held artistry of infusion. To amplify this, and the collection’s kaleidoscope of diversity, for this mixture we selected and expertly combined johnsons grass tree (xanthorrhoea johnsonii), rose myrtle (rhodomyrtus tomentosa), white correa (correa alba), wombat berry (eustrephus latifolius), goodinea (goodinea), white birch (betula pendula), manuka myrtle (leptospermum scoparium), lemon aspen (cronychia acidula), native pennyroyal mint (mentha satureioides) evincing the wondrous aromas that this gin so beautifully orchestrates. 



On the noble quest to try a salted caramel espresso martini at home, which has included the unfortunate purchase of some painfully undrinkable caramel vodkas, I stumbled across a number of 5 star reviews for Underground. Fueled with hope but limited optimism, I found and headed home with a bottle of your finest. What followed was one of the most joyfully surprising vodka experiences I’ve had. It lives up to the hype and then some. It’s smooth. Perfectly balanced with caramel. My friends, your caramel vodka has added life to my espresso martinis and saved my waistline because it also goes perfectly with soda. Your liquid gold I shall continue to recommend to anyone who’ll listen.Caramel Vodka - 5 stars. Thank you! -
