ZA ZA TA will play host to the Australian launch of 44°N – Australia’s most expensive gin – serving up a selection of bespoke, handcrafted cocktails at ZA ZA TA’s bar throughout December.
Kicking off its Australian launch with a series of complimentary weekly tastings, guests will be treated to four classic cocktails with a 44°N twist, created exclusively in collaboration with ZA ZA TA’s Jared Thibault and Braeden Hargreaves and 44°N’s Master Distiller French Distiller Comte de Grasse.
From Thursday, 28th November at 6.30pm, and running weekly until Thursday, 19th December, guests will get an exclusive taste of the four classic cocktails with a 44°N twist – a Hibiscus G&T, Floral Negroni, Imperial Martini and Royale French.
What’s so special about 44°N Gin?
It has been imagined and distilled in Grasse on the beautiful Côte d’Azur, undergoing the same creation process as perfume. Grasse, the worldwide capital of perfumery, has provided the inspiration, expertise and precious ingredients to produce an exceptional gin with phenomenal complexity and a long, refined depth of flavor – perfectly paired with a Queensland Summer!
44°N is produced sustainably with locally sourced and foraged botanicals, distilled through a highly energy efficient process. Named for the geographic coordinates of Grasse, 44°N Gin encapsulates the energy and flavour of the Mediterranean in every drop. With top notes of grapefruit, samphire and mimosa – the fresh and zingy flavours are punctuated by Cade – a variety of Juniper native to the Mediterranean, which provides a woody depth of flavour. The blooming floral body highlights rose centifolia, capturing the essence of Grasse rose fields. Hints of jammy bitter orange and warm pepper round out the middle notes. Orris and honey base notes ensure a sweet yet musky long-lasting effect on the tongue.
ZA ZA TA will be hosting free 44°N Gin tastings every Thursday, from 28 November till 19th December, 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
