I VALUE SOCIAL MEDIA
Caroline Ashford launched 'The Gin Queen' in December 2013 to share her enthusiasm for gin and the people who make it.
Heidi's one of a kind barrel aged native King Island gin, cask aged on a cray fishing boat she works on. Matures the gin out in the rough seas around King Island and Tasmania. This may be a unique style of the first King Island Distillery aged Gin, that could tempt the Gin Queen to give this spirt a tasting.
