The Cannabis Company from Melbourne recently made headlines with The Myrcene Hemp Gin, distilled in Healesville Victoria using cannabis terpenes. The first release of 300 bottles sold out in just three days and they’ve since struggled to keep up with demand – even more so after winning a medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Myrcene is the name of the most abundant terpene found in cannabis, terpenes being essential oils in many types of medicinal plants and flowers. The gin’s aroma is bubblegum, lavender, pine forest, and sage, with a flavour of rosemary, resin, cloves and woody spices. It has a long complex finish and a rich mouthfeel.
Apparently the myrcene terpene makes the herb known as “Mary Jane” much stronger through something called “The Entourage Effect”… we’re sceptical, but there’s only one way to find out!
