Combining booze and personal grooming is nothing new to Mike Enright. The man behind The Barber Shop, York Street's inspired gin bar and barber (and its spinoff at Barangaroo), he's a master of both the close shave and many a high-end spirit. Now he's taking the marriage to the next logical step. No, we're not talking about alcoholic shampoo — although you're kind of on the right track.
Enright's Original Gin is a series of gin-scented grooming products – think shaving oil, hand soap, and after shave with 16 botanicals, including touches of juniper, cardamom, liquorice root and lemon. "I wanted to create a gin experience in The Barber Shop as well as the bar," said Enright.
After years of research, the products — which are all made in Australia using natural ingredients — launched earlier this month. They're available at The Barber Shop's two Sydney locations as well as online.
