To celebrate Australian Gin week, iconic Australian gin brand, Seven Seasons, is teaming up with another national gem, Barangaroo House’s Rekōdo Restaurant & Vinyl Bar, to introduce its Green Ant Gin Martini.
Just launched on 15th November 2023, this exciting collaboration puts the spotlight on Seven Season Spirits’ acclaimed Green Ant Gin with a month long Green Ant Gin Martini and snack menu infused with the rich history and flavours of Australian flora.
From November 15th to December 14th, guests can experience the Green Ant Gin Martini menu at Rekōdo! Award-winning bartender Jai Lyons will bring the Green Ant Martini to life, and Solotel’s head chef, Michael Dabbs has created a bespoke menu tailored to pair perfectly with the cocktail, including a $14 Steak tartare temaki with koji, finger lime dressing, and a green ant garnish.
The Green Ant Gin Martini will also be gracing 50 of Australia’s top venues such as New South Wales’ Margaret & West Hotels, Victoria’s Vue de Monde & Sunda, Queensland’s Sasso Italiano & Rosellas Bar, and South Australia’s Sofitel & Fleet Street Social – each putting their own twist on the cocktail.
Founded by former AFL legend and indigenous food entrepreneur Daniel Motlop, Seven Seasons is a premium distillery that anchors on the seven seasons of Larrakia county (the Darwin region) . Guided by nature’s clock and respecting the lore of the land, the brand harvests authentic, Australian native ingredients through sustainable practices before transforming them into uniquely refreshing spirits.
Standing at the heart of the collaboration is the Green Ant Gin – a spirit that showcases green ants, a traditional food of Darwin’s Larrakia people. Harvested during the Windy Season, green ants exude vibrant flavours of coriander and lime, delivering a burst of citrus on the palate with each sip. Enhanced by a harmonious blend of exquisite botanicals such as strawberry gum, boobialla, lemon myrtle and pepper berry, Green Ant Gin offers the perfect brightness for a martini.
As the seasons change, Gin Week approaches. Mark your calendars for November 15th and celebrate over an enticing collaboration that makes a toast to Australian culture!
