Charlatan Modern Gin

Charlatan - Modern Gin, Knoxfield, VIC

With over a decade of experience in competition bartending at some of Melbourne and the Gold Coast’s top bars, Cory Hodgson is no slouch when it comes to understanding the nuance of spirits, and the ways in which flavours and textures marry. With the pandemic, the opportunity to step into distilling arose and led to him to create a spirit of his own that encompasses the cheeky and brazen, yet easy-going aura of a fantastic venue experience. Charlatan presents this maiden venture under his own label; a successful effort to pack in character and quality without compromising sustainability. Soon to be available in local shops and venues, we are delighted to be premiering the Charlatan Modern Gin to the commercial market via this Gin Drop!

About the gin.

When we got a taste of what Cory was up to back in November it caught our attention and we knew it would be befitting of your, our loyal subscribers’, refined palates. Now bottled and ready for your bar, you can expect pink peppercorn dancing out of the glass, lifted by the fruity aromas of raspberry and apple, perfumed with stinging nettle and a sturdy juniper backbone, and rounded out on the finish with fatty macadamia and musk. This is a gin for which you’ll want to sit back and let it do the talking.

The label is inspired by the wine industry where we’re seeing less one-dimensional designs and more mini works of art. Cory gave his artist permission to explore, the result embodies the wild heart of the spirit. Drink neat, or try as a Classic Martini.
