National Distillery

May Day Gin 700ml 42% ABV

Gin Supporting Ukrainian Mothers In Ruins Collaboration with Gin Lovers NZ

Our vision was to create a great tasting gin that embodied the key elements of Ukraine and New Zealand all whilst raising much needed money for the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis.

The national flower of Ukraine is the Sunflower and we wanted to incorporate it as a botanical, so we have toasted Sunflower seeds to release the subtle nutty flavor. For the New Zealand element we have used Harakeke, New Zealand Native Flax Seed, which adds a note of pepper. The national spice of Ukraine is Anise. Very different to its relative Star Anise, it adds a hint of spice like no other. A gin that can be enjoyed with Tonic, Ginger Ale or the mixer of your choice.
