Five distilleries in Canberra to help you celebrate World Gin Day

Posted

Yes, that’s right folks, you read that right – today is World Gin Day! Power for those who decide to ditch their morning coffee for a glass of ice, a splash of tonic, and a merry juniper shimmy.

World Gin Day is the love child of Neil Houston, who one monumental night in a grungy Soho Bar decided that this powerful liquid ally needed its own day to be appreciated by all. And here we are.

So what’s the best way to celebrate? With a locally made gin of course! You may still think of Neil today as you make your way to one of these distilleries in the Canberra region.

The Canberra Distillery

Just a 10 minute frolic from the city, the Canberra Distillery feels local, smells local, but most importantly, tastes local. Oh, and did we mention they make the HerCanberra French Earl Gray Gin – a revolutionary combination that allows us to drink our tea and, er, drink alcohol too. Seduced? You should be.

Big River Distilling Co.

If your World Gin Day starts near Kingston Foreshore or Fyshwick, then you must make your own way to Big River Distilling Co. (I don’t make the rules), where big flavors pay tribute to the Canberra region. They are passionate about evoking your senses, facilitating a moment of pause, a sense of transcendence. The power of gin, right? Some things just can’t be rationalized.

Underground Spirits Canberra

If there’s one person I’m going to trust to make my gin, it’s robotic surgeon Toby Angstmann. As Canberra’s most award-winning spirits brand, we won’t blame you for taking the pleasure of trying the range. (It’s World Gin Day, so really, there are no limits).

The Antipodes Gin Co

As Australia’s first certified organic and carbon neutral gin, the Antipodes Gin Co proves you can save the environment and get a little tipsy. Inspired by the Sunraysia region and its sun-drenched citrus groves, each sip is infused with a delightful warmth, just what you need on a chilly Canberra day.

Hold Fast Distillery

The Hold Fast Distillery is a scenic drive away in Captain’s Flat – an excellent excuse to rip that non-drinking friend of yours for a road trip. Their award-winning gin is said to give you a subtle aftertaste of fresh mountain air as it climbs through Tallaganda National Park (oh, and apparently their Man o’ War Gin tastes like the sea and will make you feel like you’re 10 feet tall and can live forever). I’ll let you decide whether that’s a good thing or not.
