Scapegrace ultra-premium black gin, crafted from the pure water of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, has arrived in Australia.

Scapegrace Black uses a unique collection of natural extracts to achieve its deep black colour, which changes to shades of red and purple when mixed with tonic.

The natural botanicals include aronia berry, as well as saffron, pineapple, butterfly pea and sweet potato. Each of the extracts is distilled at precise temperatures in a defined sequence in order to create the unique colour spectrum of black.

Trophy Winner of the 2018 Best London Dry Gin at the International Spirits Awards in London, this premium gin sold out a three-month supply after just 24 hours on New Zealand shelves. The distillery describes the gin as having “full-bodied florality with a menthol-like crispiness, a balanced citrus freshness and a hint of spice with a candied sweet potato and pineapple finish.”

Co-founder of Scapegrace Mark Neal said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Scapegrace Black to Australia, this velvety New Zealand-made gin that will most definitely elevate your G&T experience. Full-bodied on the palate, the signature serve is best enjoyed with a premium tonic and garnished with a slice of apple.”


Scapegrace Black Gin is available for $79.99 RRP at Booze Bud and select independent retailers nationwide. Check out the full Scapegrace range at Dan Murphy’s.
