Melbourne is a city that intrigues in so many ways, from its four-seasons-in-a-day weather to its striking architecture, its immensely creative street style and its laneways that proudly serve up the sights, sounds and gastronomic wonders of its peoples’ cultures. It captivates the senses in a way no other city can.
It’s a city that celebrates the old and the new and whatever comes next, transcending traditions and transforming them into that elusive quality that is Melbourne’s charm.
So, it made sense that when distilling the spirit of Melbourne, we chose gin – a drink with its roots threading back through the centuries, yet a perfectly versatile base to set the stage for a uniquely modern fusion of local flavours, and a tipple for all seasons.
In any great gin, the way in which flavours reveal themselves should be an experience that awakens the senses and tells a story. We take painstaking care when distilling our gin in small batches, using locally sourced botanicals to create a multilayered, perfectly balanced blend – one that stands its ground straight up, on the rocks or in a cocktail, and reveals different notes of its personality in each interpretation.
Melbourne Gin is a modern-day re-imagining of a classic, taking tradition and rewriting it with the sensory revelry that’s become a symbol of the city itself.
When you first partake of our gin, we suggest pouring it neat or over ice to let it play to its strengths. If you prefer to mix things up in a cocktail, visit our mixology page for recommendations and inspiration.
We hope your experience of Melbourne Gin is as exciting as our city. Enjoy – rain, hail or shine!
