40% ABV / 500mL
Fossey’s Distillery is based in the middle of the Sunraysia region of Victoria, one of the most productive fruit growing areas in Australia. In fact, the region produces around 98% of the nation’s dried vine fruit and 25% of all its citrus. What better reason than that to be opening a gin-focused distillery right in the heart of it all? Fossey’s has done just that, with its founder Steve keen to use the distillery to drive greater awareness of the region’s produce as a whole. According to Steve, “we have lots of wineries and great produce, yet we don’t really market our produce that well”.
Original Gin Elixir
The distillery proudly calls their Original Gin Elixir a true Australian gin, having replaced most traditional botanicals with Australian grown lemon myrtle, pepperberry, lavender and cassia. As you’d expect, bucket loads of locally grown Bergamot oranges and tangelos feature in the botanical basket as well.
