SüD POLAIRE GIN EXPERIENCE
Discover the thrill of transcendent flavour, glacial cut and bracing Antarctic dry spirit.
Take a seat at the snowy marble bar at Institut Polaire to immerse yourself in the world of Süd Polaire gin. A top mixologist will share the origins of Süd Polaire while you taste your way through the range of Antarctic dry, expedition strength, saefron, cru and rare styles. Learn the secrets of distillation and taste the influence of local botanicals. An artisan cheese platter to share, enjoyed between samples completes the experience. Our spirit is formed by the nature of our environment; an archetypal wilderness of mountain, mist and cloud forest at the edge of the world. It is balanced by pristine Tasmanian rainwater swept across a vast expanse of Southern Ocean from Antarctica; the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth. Süd Polaire gin is micro batch distilled and bottled by hand in Tasmania. Only the purest hearts of superbly smooth, triple distilled wine spirit make this an excellent martini gin. A gin lover's dream.
Sessions cater for 1 - 12 persons and include 5 tasting samples accompanied by notes and a cheese platter to share.
