Melbourne Gin Company

The local gin made by a winemaker.

The alcohol industry may be all about fluids, obviously, but it's also a field that values fluid-thinking folks. Take Melbourne Gin Company's Andrew Marks, for example. He was a winemaker before he decided to ply his skills on a different type of tipple. He still makes vino, but he has also become quite accomplished at making handcrafted, batch-distilled, non chill-filtered gin.

Made in the Yarra Valley at Gembrook Hill Vineyard, Marks' winery, Melbourne Gin Company serves up two types of its chosen spirit. With the dry version, you'll sip your way through a drop that nods to London varieties, but with tastes of coriander seed, macadamia, sandalwood, honey, lemon myrtle and navel orange. With the company's Single Shot gin, juniper is the hero. And if you're wondering about the name, that's because this tipple is made in a single distillation process.

Gin fiends can shop their way through Melbourne Gin Company's range via its online store — and nab free tonic with your order.
