Outback Australia, SA & NT
Wattle species grow throughout Australia, however the most commonly harvested wattleseeds are located throughout the arid regions of the Northern Territory and South Australia.
These regions contain some of the most iconic, well known and also lesser known of Australia’s attractions. From the iconic Uluru through to hidden secrets of Ormiston Pound and Trephina Gorge, the Red Centre draws people from all over the world to experience for themselves the wonder and awe that is the outback.
Driving holidays, short breaks in comfy accommodation, or an extended trip roughing it in swags, however you choose to see this part of Australia, please make a visit to the Red Centre a priority.
There are almost 1,000 Acacia species in Australia, commonly referred to as wattles.
The wattleseed contains potassium, calcium, iron and zinc in fairly high concentrations.
Wattleseed has a multitude of uses; extracting essence delivers a strong nutty and/or coffee flavour with a slight bitterness, milling for flour sees use in cakes, damper, breads and curries whilst the seed itself is used in ice-cream, sauces and marinades.
However one of the best uses for the watteseed is in a gin – an Australian Dry Gin.
An Australian Dry
Upfront juniper followed by subtle tones of anise, sunburnt wattle and saltbush. Piquant lime with hints of mandarin, finishing with a warm spicy glow. A gin for all occasions.
