Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin is a true small-batch gin made by infusing botanicals including orange peel and cinnamon in spirit produced in a pot still. Presented in brown paper, string and wax, it is reminiscent of an apothecary in Victorian days!
Nose: A juniper-rich bouquet on a solid base of rich grain spirit. Top notes of cardamom and orange blossom are evident with just a hint of cinnamon.
Palate: The earthier botanicals make themselves known in the initial palate. Mouthfeel is exceptionally viscous and creamy.
Finish: The juniper subsides and gives way to cardamom and cinnamon, with a late resurgence from orange peel.
As an international traveller you are entitled to bring a certain amount/value of goods that are free of Customs duty and exempt Goods and Services tax (GST) into New Zealand. This is called your duty free allowance and personal goods concession. It is important to review these for any purchases you make on The Mall.
Please be aware you do need to be 17 years of age or older to claim the duty free allowance for any alcohol purchases and 18 years of age or over to buy alcohol in New Zealand.
When departing New Zealand there are legal limits on the amount of duty free alcohol and other goods you can take with you. It’s a good idea to check the allowances and exemptions for arrival into your travel destination and be aware of any liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) security restrictions when you are transiting through other international airports.
