Being passionate and celebrating that passion isn't just nice advice at Old Young's Distillery. It's part of the Swan Valley-based company's manifesto, too. Yes, that's a pretty simple creed to live by when you spend your days making hand-crafted gin; however, these juniper spirits are easy to get passionate about.
Take Old Young's Six Seasons Gin, for example. Made from 100-percent Aussie sugar cane, it's also the distillery's tribute to the region's Indigenous owners. The Noongar peoples view the annual calendar as a progression of not four, but six distinct seasons, including two phases of spring and summer. That's something to honour while you're sipping a blend of Tuscan juniper, coriander, angelica, bush mint and sea parsley, as well as both juniper and lemon myrtle, and desert lime.
Located in Henley Brook, Old Young's Distillery serves up tastings daily — with a maximum group size of four people under COVID-19 restrictions.
