23-46% ABV / 3x200mL
Cape Byron Distillery was founded by Eddie Brook and former master distiller of Bruichladdich Distillery, Jim McEwan. The distillery resides on the Brook family’s very own 96 acre macadamia farm and native rainforest, which they’ve helped regenerate over many decades of careful conservation work. As a result, the distillery has remarkable access to a whole host of native plants which have taken up residence – these include the Davidson's Plum, riberries, native ginger and aniseed myrtle.
Featured in this 3pc tasting set are two of the distillery's most popular gin expressions and their unique macadamia liqueur 'Mac'. Each bottle is 200ml in volume.
Brookie's Byron Dry Gin
Uniquely distilled with 25 botanicals, 17 of which are native to Cape Byron Distillery's rainforest 'backyard', Brookie’s Dry Gin is a distinctly Australian interpretation of a classic London Dry Gin.
Brookie's Byron Slow Gin
Instead of traditional English sloe gin, it’s the native Davidson’s Plum that becomes a hero ingredient in this ‘slow' gin. In fact, this indigenous plum is not only native to Australia, it’s native to the subtropical region of Byron Bay where the distillery is located. To make this gin, the distillery infuses Davidson’s Plums in their signature Brookie’s Dry Gin and lets time weave its magic.
Mac by Brookies
This is a unique liqueur made from roasted macadamias and wattleseed. According to the distillery, it's 'the Mac Daddy of all nut liqueurs', and we'd have to agree. Pour over ice with a slice of lime or mix into an espresso martini for something a little more unexpected.
