Forty Spotted

We believe that some of the greatest things in life are still to be discovered. That’s why we matched traditional gin botanicals with the rare Tasmanian pepperberry to create a refined and elegant gin that is unlike any other. And why Forty Spotted? We named it after Tasmania’s rarest bird, the Forty-spotted Pardalote (Pardalotus quadragintus) – an endemic creature that is as unique as our gin. Best paired with warm nights and fine friends.

The Secret
Ingredient

Introducing the Tasmanian Mountain Pepper Berry

Also known as Tasmannia aromatica, this wonderful berry’s distinctive essence imbues Forty Spotted with a unique spiciness, giving you an exceptionally rich and individual gin flavour. The Aromatica’s unusual characteristics appear in the gin without dominating the spirit, giving it a delightful zing.

A Rare Find

Spotted, Yet Hard To Spot

So what is this little bird that’s causing so much fuss?

The Tasmanian wilderness produces rare things. Perhaps the rarest of them all is the unique, exquisite creature known as the Forty-spotted pardalote.

There are three kinds of pardalote in Tasmania, but only one has forty spots. Ironically, it is the most difficult to spot. Its call, should you be lucky enough to hear it, is a low-pitched “Where? Where? Where?”

Sometimes known as a Diamond Bird, Pardalotus quadragintus is rare – very rare. And it’s found only in Tasmania.

We think that makes it the perfect namesake for our RARE TASMANIAN gin.
