Tour description provided by Viator

Join us at Institut Polaire, the home of Sud Polaire spirits, for a unique tasting experience. Sessions cater for 2 - 10 persons and include 6 tasting samples and a cheese platter to share.  Available Saturdays, or by appointment. Please allow approximately 45 minutes.Our spirit is formed by the nature of our environment; an archetypal wilderness of mountain, mist and cloud forest at the edge of the world. It is balanced by pristine Tasmanian rainwater swept across a vast expanse of Southern Ocean from Antarctica; the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth. 
Upon arrival at Institut Polaire, settle into the snowy, luxe interior taking a seat at the marble bar, or private tasting room for larger groups. Our cellar door team will guide you through 6 spirit samples including Süd Polaire Vodka, Antarctic Dry Gin, Expedition Strength Gin, Saefron Gin, Cru Gin, and Rare Oak Cask Gin. A tailored cheese platter to share, enjoyed between samples, completes the experience. Süd Polaire gin is small batch distilled and bottled by hand in Tasmania. Only the purest hearts of superbly smooth, triple distilled wine spirit make this an excellent martini gin. Vapour infused with ten organic botanicals including aromatic juniper, fresh hand-cut lemon and grapefruit peel, Southern Ocean kombu, orris root, cassia bark, local mountain pepper berries and leaves. Transcendent flavour, glacial cut, bracing Antarctic dry gin.
