Anther experimental distillation is the creation of scientist Dervilla McGowan and bartender Sebastian Reaburn. Anther is a small distillery hand making glorious, single shot, juniper filled gin. As well as the signature Anther Gin, they also create collaboration and speciality gins exploring juniper, native botanicals, and the flavour of our country. Every bottle of Anther Gin is distilled by hand by Derv and Seb on the 180lt Carl still at the Craft & Co in Collingwood, Melbourne. Every bottle is hand filled, hand labelled, and hand sealed. Distributed nationally with Baranows Emporium and in Japan with KY Provisions. Anther Gin was awarded the 2018 Champion Gin Trophy at the Australian Distilled Spirit Awards.

Australian spirits are now commonplace in bars across the country. But when it comes to that other cocktail staple, liqueurs, European players continue to dominate the back bar. Four veteran Melbourne hospitality professionals are providing an alternative, sourcing top-notch Australian fruit from independent farmers to produce Marionette Liqueurs. Marionette Dry Cassis, Orange Cura�ao and Apricot Brandy have already been enthusiastically adopted by bartenders Australia-wide, with many more fruity liqueurs to come.

Lawrenny Estate is located on a 400 acre property, an hours drive north of Hobart in Tasmania's Central Highlands. A large element of any spirit is water, and Lawrenny has abundant supplies of some of the freshest and purist waters running 100m past the distillery door. The established orchards and gardens of the Estate guided the choice of botanicals used within the initial Gin range as well as providing inspiration for a selection of special releases that will evolve over the coming years.
