New oceanic gin helps regrow coral reefs

Boutique gin brand Grown Spirits has created a new spirit that aims to capture the essence of the ocean and joined forces with Reef Restoration Foundation to help regrow coral reefs.

A share of the profits from each bottle of Ocean Grown Gin sold will be directed towards the restoration and rejuvenation of coral reefs along Australia’s North Queensland coastline.

Ocean Grown Gin has a delicate saline character on the nose reminiscent of a gentle sea breeze and showcases notes of olive
and savoury herbs. A bright and refreshing flavour profile unfolds on the palate with dry citrus tones and a warm
hint of spice.

Grown Spirits co-founder Will Miles said: “When we started Grown Spirits nearly a decade ago, we were very conscious of unnecessary waste and designed the bottle to have a life beyond just single use – our wider than usual neck is an encouragement to repurpose the bottle as a vase.

“In 2021, we took a step further by creating Sydney’s first Gin Refill Station as a way to help with bottle waste, and now this latest release attempts to be even more active in combating our ever-changing environment.

“This is a coastal gin that provokes memories of holidays by the sea, while serving as a reminder to protect the
ocean and the powerful, but delicate garden that grows beneath its surface.”

Reef Restoration Foundation CEO Ryan Donnelly said: “We are thrilled to partner with Grown Spirits on this vital – and pretty tasty – venture. As a business we are about building reef resilience at the places we love, to inspire and invigorate communities to take action, to create a vibrant future for the Great Barrier Reef amid a changing climate.

“People know it’s important but hopefully partnerships like this one keep the needs of our magnificent ocean in peoples’ minds.”
