Dobson's Gin is a fragrant dry gin... it is unique in it's re interpretation of the classic dry style. Bold citrus and corriander balance the juniper and create the rythym section, but it is the floral finish comprised of David Austin rose, lavender and elderflower which drive the deal home. Crisp though the finish is, you will notice that you will salivate after swallowing...a perhaps Pavlovian response to perfection.
The delicious delicate dance of botanicals and light pure spirit, that is expressed in Dobson's Gin is only found in the finest of Gin's. And for good reason, you see Dobson's is one of only a handful of Gin makers in the world to employ the rarest of specialist Gin stills... The Carter head still. There are believed to be less than six working Carter Heads in the world, Thankfully one of them is here at Dobson's.
The Carter head is unique in the way it extracts the Botanicals which make up the molecular soup that is Gin. Instead of coursely extracting by soaking the botanicals in ethanol as most gins distillers do. We do not steep the botanicals in fact not even allowed into contact with the neutral spirit: they are packed into a "flavour basket" through which the 95.6% pure alcohol vapour passes on its way to be condensed back into liquid. Leaving the impurities and volatile oils behind...the resulting gin is light, fragrant and balanced.

Having been introduced whilst on a trip to Armidale and after spending a very entertaining few hours at the distillery we came home with 3 different varieties. A family member was kind enough to topped us up at Christmas and now we just received 6 bottles from our first on line purchase. Having never been a Gin drinker I am a total advocate, love it! Dobson's G&T finished off many a warm summers day on the veranda. Looking forward now to a G&T by the fire as winter comes along.

Best gin ever! I won't buy anything else now. Thanks Dobsons for creating a very addictive and tasty product! I totally love the beautiful label on the bottle too.

Tremendous. I love this. I buy it two bottles at time. A rich, warm but still ginnish spirit. Makes the best gin & tonic ever, bar none. There is no better way to delineate between working hours and relaxation time that a stiff one.

I tried this gin on the recommendation of a bartender in my local establishment. Immediately went to the Dobson's website and ordered a bottle for home. Beautiful, intense aromatics which are sensationally balanced and a nice hit of lemon myrtle swinging around the aftermath. Fantastic with a squeeze of lemon oil from the rind and a wedge of lemon rather than cucumber. It's going to be a hit around summer.
Great website, quick delivery.
10/10, would order again.

Lovely fragrance and lingering aftertaste. As someone who didn't like gin, I'm converted by this one.

Dobson's gin is beautiful. A group of 7 of us recently tasted 3 Australian Gins, 2 English and 1 Scottish. The Australian gins were the favourites, and of those, the Dobson's rated best. Beautiful aroma and flavours. It is my favourite gin, and has been since I tasted it a couple of years ago.

This is by far the best gin I have ever tasted. Its aromas are amazing from the second you open the bottle until you have finushed the drink. I had a friend walk into the kitchen and as they sat down near my drink asked what the beautiful smell was. Simply devine!
