Toast to the race that stops the nation with a cocktail from Australian Distilling Co.
This Spring Carnival season, we’re all finding creative ways to celebrate in style. And if lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that creating our own cocktails at-home is almost as good as going to our favourite bar. So no matter what your plans are for Melbourne Cup in 2020, we’ve found just the drink you’ll want to be sipping.
Craft spirit fans will be well-acquainted with the crew from Australian Distilling Co. The brand is known for crafting some of Australia’s most iconic local spirits, with a bespoke range of city-focused gins distilled with local ingredients.
These guys certainly know what they’re doing. In fact, the brand has a long history of creating delicious drinks, dating back to 1936 when Alan R. Hickinbotham established the country’s, and one of the world’s, first university degrees dedicated to wine. Now, his grandson, Michael Hickinbotham, has continued the tradition under the name Australian Distilling Co.
So, what can you expect from these craft spirits? Each bottle of spirits takes inspiration from Australia’s sparkling cities and regions. The Australian Distilling Co. team collaborates with local distilleries across the nation, sourcing regional ingredients to ensure every spirit captures the flavours and tastes of each city.
This Melbourne Cup, why not grab a bottle of Australian Distilling Co.’s premium gin to craft delicious cocktails on Race Day? It feels fitting to score a bottle of their Melbourne Gin, offering a triple-distilled juniper base laid with opulent spices and zesty citrus to capture the best of this effortlessly cool city.
But there are plenty of Australian-inspired gins to choose from, including their Sydney Gin, Adelaide Gin, Brisbane Gin, Perth Gin and so much more.
Whether you’re celebrating at the office or hosting an intimate at-home event, you can’t go wrong with a bottle of Australian Distilling Co.’s gin. Find out more and buy your bottle here.
