Boobialla gin is the only gin in the world crafted exclusively from hand foraged, native Australian juniper. A complex array of floral tones combined with a long, luxurious finish, Boobialla offers a sui generis Australian gin experience.

Regular gin, even other Australian gins, are all made from imported Macedonian/European juniper berries. This species is juniper communis, common juniper. Boobialla gin is crafted exclusively from myoporum insulare, colloquially known as Australian native juniper. This is a completely different species, unique to Australia, which is all wild, growing along the coast. The flavour is juniper-like, more floral and less pine flavour than the imported juniper.

Perfectly ripe and fresh, hand picked Australian native juniper berries- Boobialla

Boobialla gin has a more delicate flavour than regular gin made with European common juniper. Since Boobialla is much less intense, it can be overpowered by too much tonic. This is just the nature of our native juniper. To counteract this, less tonic is used to make a gin and tonic with Boobialla gin. If the drink is too strong in terms of alcohol, the drink should be topped up with soda water instead of additional tonic since soda has no flavour, or adding more ice and stirring.

Is Boobialla even a gin if it contains no imported common juniper? It depends on the definition, we are definitely stretching the boundaries with this one and we are proud to share this unique native flavour! Commonly, gin is considered to be "predominantly juniper in flavour."

700 mL bottle size. 40% ALC/VOL 22 standard drinks.

    My daughter got me this for my birthday and it definitely hits the spot. Number 62 on my 62nd birthday was the cherry on top 🙂

    Special, strange, unique, delicious flavour. Great to be drinking something that is purely from Australia

    This is my all time favourite gin, such a special, unique flavour. I’m not really a huge fan of coriander and regular gin is packed with coriander, so this one for me is absolutely perfect.
