Southern Ocean Lodge has launched its own gin, baillies 9.  Blended specially by Kangaroo Island’s resident distillers of fine, wild spirits, John and Sarah Lark of KI Spirits.

baillies 9 is produced in small batches using fresh botanicals including a KI native juniper, called myoporum insulare. Batches are prepared seasonally and in small quantities, using Australia’s only basket still process. This style of production creates a distinct and unique flavour profile and guarantees a super quality beverage.

Enjoy baillies 9 over ice with a superior mixer or as part of your favourite cocktail. It is available exclusively for the enjoyment of guests at Southern Ocean Lodge and for their friends and family who might order a take-home gift from the Lodge Boutique!

The baillies 9 blend contains 43% Alc/vol and has already been awarded:

Bronze International Wine Spirits Competition, London July 2010

Bronze at the inaugural New York International Spirits Competition, November 2010

Bronze at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, March 2011
