A bold reinterpretation of gin - Animus's Classic Dry took on a life of it's own when lemon myrtle and mountain pepper berry were added to the rich, juniper led base. It's a zesty, spicy, gin that has an effortless, almost fluffy texture across the palate. The inclusion of white sesame seeds adds to the body and leaves the nutty hint on the finish. There are bright, tangy notes thanks to fresh mandarin, lime and young kaffir lime leaf. The punchy, fresh ginger and galangal brings rooty intensity and earthy, spicy notes.

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

About the brand Animus Distillery
Animus Distillery was founded in 2015, by four friends with a shared passion for producing world-class spirits. Initially starting in Fitzroy North they quickly outgrew this space and expanded to a larger rural property in Central Victoria.
Capturing the soul of the freshest botanicals for their gin is central to their production philosophy. With the highest grade of 100% Australian grain spirit and triple filtering using a custom gravity-fed carbon filter system this provides the cleanest base for distillation.
With many of the botanicals grown on our property they use a 100% vapour pressed production approach with a custom-made 50L copper column still. The gins are produced in small batches, where their botanical baskets are changed after every few litres, to extract the freshest, richest flavours of Australian native and international ingredients. Whilst labour intensive, this approach allows them to continually balance their artisan gins with the sensibility of a fine chef.
The gins are tasted throughout the production process to ensure each batch displays exquisite balance and intensity. They are released at 50% alcohol, to best express the richness and complexity of the ingredients.
Sustainability is a core part of their business philosophy. All of the used botanicals are reutilised to provide fertilizer for growing the next generation of botanicals. Pure filtered rainwater from our estate is used to make the gins and all packaging is made from recycled and sustainable sources.
“Our business ethos is to minimise our footprint through cascading resource utilisation. We aim to constantly improve the efficiency of our energy utilisation, wherever possible upgrading our energy infrastructure to renewable sources.”
