With a cheeky name and a passion for gin, Kilderkin Distillery Gin in Ballarat has launched four new Australian gins in its Larrikin range.

These premium Larrikin spirits are distilled for drinkers with a preference for drinking spirits neat as well as those who like to add their favourite mixers.

The Original Larrikin, RRP $80, is Australian in style with local botanicals while the Scoundrel, RRP $75 is a classic London Dry style.

With a higher alcohol level of 57 per cent, the Buccaneer is Navy Strength, RRP $95, and is distilled with extra rations of juniper and lime.

The Barrel-Aged Batch #3, RRP $95, has been ‘aged’ in small American Oak barrels, that once held bourbon and then Tasmanian whisky.
