"Bouquet of delicate florals, passionfruit, gooseberry and green bean. The intensity of aromatics could have you mistaking this for a racy Marlborough Sav. Green bean, passionfruit lemon and a hint of stone-fruit are evident on the palate. The palate is medium bodied, with rounded mouth-feel and medium length. Juicy acidity blends in nicely with other components." - Michael Cooper 4 Stars

Born of the belief that whisky is a living cultural icon to be shared, Thomson Whisky started life unearthing rare and precious stocks of whisky, making them available to enthusiasts once more. Now with a new distillery in operation North West of Auckland, the team are also helping to insure the longevity of New Zealand’s whisky making tradition.
Two Tone refers to the two kinds of cask used for the maturation of this whisky; European oak which formerly held New Zealand red wine and American white oak used exclusively for whisky. Find sea air and caramelised fruits on the nose, followed by red berries, apricot and spice on the palate.
In place of an age statement the infinity symbol marking this bottling is symbolic of the marriage of casks.
Scurvy & Gunpowder Proof. A navy strength gin with the additional flavours of lime peel and gunpowder green tea. 57% abv.
Non-chill-filtered this evocation of old-fashioned gin production methods renders a spirit with a distinctly jaundiced hue. They take their inspiration from the Royal Navy's regulation measure of Vitamin C for all hands, as well as the parallel history of the East India company and its globe-spanning trade in tea as an adjunct of Empire (with the might of the RN in a supporting role).
Most excellent with grapefruit juice for a 'Salty Sea Dog', it also pairs well with oloroso sherry.
