Gin Foundry

Flavour Wheel

Sarah Lark from Kangaroo Island Spirits shared this gin flavour wheel with us at a Gintastic Gin Up. It was developed by Gin Foundry.

The tasting wheel was designed with the identification and articulation of flavours in mind.

You work your way out from the middle, picking the general flavour zone, then continuing outward, move onto the sensation. 

Follow your finger outward on the wheel and you should land on or very close the the botanical you are tasting.

Carmer Spirits




The CSTEM is based on the realization that by acclimatizing the olfactory system to the spirit you are drinking, you are better able to access the flavors and aromas it has.

How to make flavoured gin

Gin traditionally contains juniper, coriander and cardamom among its spices, so choose a flavour to complement the natural elements of mother’s ruin.


Seasonal flavours should be your first port of call for flavour inspiration. Keep your eyes on the hedgerows for berries, elderflowers and herbs that you could use.
