14 Guide to New Zealand Gin Nestled in the foothills of the Southern Alps near picturesque Arrowtown, Broken Heart Spirits was born from the memory of a beloved life lost. They endeavour to create gin that captures the glory days of a friendship between two Germans that met in the South Island and bonded over their mutual appreciation for creating fine spirits before one of them tragically passed away. A classic style gin, Broken Heart Gin balances earthy, floral, spicy, and fresh flavour profiles to capture the essence of a dry Central Otago summer. 40% ABV Broken Heart Gin DISTILLERY: Broken Heart Spirits, Arrow Junction VISIT THEM: 3 Whitechapel Road, Arrow Junction (by appointment) WEBSITE: BOTANICALS: Juniper, Coriander Seed, Lavender, Angelica Root & Others Not Disclosed TASTING NOTES: Lifted juniper with fresh aromatic lemon and lime on the nose.
