WE'RE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE the Lumira collaboration with Sydney-based gin distillery, Distillery Botanica.
This November, Distillery Botanica Gin and luxury lifestyle brand Lumira combine their love of botanicals and the finest ingredients by crafting a gin scented candle, Tonic of Gin. Creating an enriching, sensory experience, the candle reflects the aroma of the award winning floral gin.
Distillery Botanica Gin’s unique character is derived from its botanicals which are grown and handpicked in the distillery garden, and the use of “enfleurage”, a thousand-year-old perfuming technique used to extract the purest perfume from their hero botanical Murraya. The floral character of the gin is distinct and inspired by the Australian summer garden. It is this approach to product development and appreciation for pure fragrance that drew Almira Armstrong, Lumira Founder & Creative Director, to Distillery Botanica:
“I was first introduced to Distillery Botanica about a year ago - I was so intrigued by how they created such a fragrant product. I wanted to understand their process in achieving such a delicious, heightened scent in their gin”.
Tonic of Gin features the scent of Murraya, Chamomile and Juniper, botanicals which form the cast of Distillery Botanica’s Garden Grown Gin. These fragrant notes are captured beautifully in the candle allowing enthusiasts to experience gin in an alternative, sensory way.
Will Miles, Brand Director says: “We loved the idea of collaborating with Lumira. We like exploring ways in which we can convey our gin’s unique character, and creating a candle that captures the aroma of Distillery Botanica gin sounded original and interesting”.
With Spring upon us and Summer around the corner, Tonic of Gin makes a perfect accompaniment to sipping a refreshing G&T on balmy summer evenings.
