The Canna Co. 'The Myrcene' Hemp Gin 700ml
96 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
"A less botanical, more herbaceous gin on account of the addition of hemp terpenes - on a gin scale, it would be low juniper, mid-citrus, and high herb (no pun intended). Although the cassia element is quite prominent as a botanical on the nose - which is what suggests a bubblegum essence - there is only a slight hint of pine and juniper, with the symphony being made up mostly of its "bouquet garni" type pungency. Think rosemary, sage, kawakawa, lavender, etc. Accenting this is a mid-palate hit of fresh lemon and orange zest. Our recommendation for serving would be paired with a premium tonic such as East Imperial Burma or Fever Tree Indian garnished with a wedge of lemon and/or a sprig of rosemary if on hand, as this would best bring out those mild botanicals to round out the flavour."
- Wine Direct Staff Pick
Lavender, pine forest and sage. Soft tones of violet interact on the palate with woodland flavours of rosemary and resin, cloves and woody spices. With a long complex finish and a rich mouthfeel, The Myrcene is perfect paired with a premium tonic.
Small-batch crafted in Healesville, this complex award-winning gin represents the marriage of past and future. The world’s first hemp-infused gin distilled with terpenes – The Myrcene, which is one of the aromatic compounds known as “terpenes” which is found in hemp/cannabis (fun fact: in hops, too!). In clinical trials, Myrcene has shown properties that can aid sleep, reduce pain and inflammation.
