TWELVE AND A HALF ACRES
Introducing Montville Gin, a carefully handcrafted spirit that captures the essence of traditional gin-making while infusing it with a contemporary twist. Crafted with precision and care, this quintessentially moreish gin is a complex blend of 11 meticulously selected botanicals, each contributing to a balanced and savourable flavour profile.
It's a dominance of juniper, subtly fused with spices, citrus, and native Tasmanian pepper berry. The artful combination of these elements, distilled with a premium grape-based spirit that begins with a traditional strength of 96% ABV, produces a symphony of flavours that dance on the palate. The grape base sets our gin apart, creating a smooth and velvety texture that elevates the spirit to a level of refinement that is easily noticeable – it glides across the palate and can be savoured neat or over ice.
Our Montville gin embodies the spirit of traditional gin-making, while embracing the innovation and creativity that define the modern era. It serves excellently as a G&T, or even better, as a gin martini.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is unique about your gins?
At Twelve and a Half Acres we hold true to the London Dry process for our Gins. We use premium grape based neutral spirit from South Australia. Only natural, and mainly organic, botanicals are added to flavour and sweeten the gin during the distillation process. Only pure filtered rainwater is added post distillation and no sweetener, or any additive is added. Read our blog about London Dry gin to learn more about the process we use and standards we adhere to.
What cocktails can I make with your gins?
We truly think the amount of cocktails you can make with our gin is only limited to your imagination and creativity.
What makes your gin different from others on the market?
What sets this gin apart from others on the market is its adherence to tradition. It's crafted using traditional methods and the finest natural ingredients available, including a premium grape-based spirit. This choice results in a clean, soft mouthfeel, which distinguishes it from gins made with grain-based spirits - think whisky. The gin does not contain any additional colouring, sweeteners, or flavourings, ensuring authenticity. It isn't modified post-distillation; it remains true to the London Dry process, embodying the pure product that emerges from the still.
How do you ensure the quality of your gins?
Firstly, we chose the finest ingredients – that’s essential. How can you produce high-end quality spirit using cheap inferior ingredients – the simple answer is you can’t. When distilling I make sure that only the premium flavours are collected during what is called the cuts of the distillation process. This ensures that the harsh flavours of the initial alcohol vapours to distil are not included in any of the Twelve and a Half Acre gins – in industry terms I cut deep making sure that only the spirit that makes the best drink is collected. From a process perspective we also use top industry standard equipment and have had my spirit professionally laboratory tested to absolutely confirm you are drinking the best possible spirit.
Do you provide delivery services for your products?
Yes, we offer various delivery options for our products. Firstly, we provide a free local delivery service for purchases made within a 15km radius of Montville, with deliveries taking place every Friday.
