The 78˚ Negroni

The Perfect Tipple

Tuesday 27th February 2018

Today we’re signing off on The Perfect Tipple – our four-part Australian gin cocktail series, supported by Dan Murphy’s.

We’re closing the series with an old favourite: the Negroni, albeit, a distinctly Australian version! This Negroni features the 78˚ Degrees Gin, produced by Adelaide Hills Distillery, along with ‘The Italian’, Adelaide Hills’ take on a classic Italian bitter orange aperitif (aka, something a little like Campari).

The 78˚ Degrees Gin brings together 12 Australian native botanicals, and is uniquely distilled at a temperature that never exceeds 78.1˚, ensuring the preservation of delicate flavours.

Combining botanical-infused gin, bitter orange and rosso vermouth, this classic cocktail, served over ice, really is our idea of the perfect tipple.

Meet the team behind Adelaide Hills Distillery at House of Discovery, an interactive pop-up in an abandoned heritage house in Chippendale, March 9th-10th. Learn how to mix the perfect cocktail, spot a quality tequila, and stock your home bar with all of the must-haves. Find out more here.
