Distillery Discoveries & Familiar Faces

Featuring a distillery discovery and one of our familiar faces at the Melbourne Gin Festival next year.

Distillery Discovery

Flora Distillery

Flora Distillery

Introducing Flora Gin Distillery, a premium gin maker that uses the finest organic botanicals. At Flora, they take pride in their commitment to quality and sustainability. Each batch is carefully crafted, making it the perfect gin for any discerning drinker.

One of their fan favourites is their Yuzu Gin. This unique gin is infused with the fresh and tangy flavour of Yuzu, a type of citrus fruit originating from East Asia, similar in flavour to a mandarine crossed with a lime and grapefruit. This gin is perfect for those who love a refreshing and citrusy taste. Whether you’re looking for a new gin to enjoy on the rocks or as a base for a cocktail, their Yuzu Gin is unlike any gin on the market. Try it at the festival.

Familiar Faces

The Gin Boutique

The Gin Boutique

The Gin Boutique is an Australian owned and fully independent
business that is dedicated to the promotion of genuine craft gin. They sell high-quality, small batch gins that have been crafted by independent distilleries.

They have been ‘researching’ gin for a long time. They appreciate the time, effort, and ultimately the true craftsmanship required to produce a bottle of craft gin ready for market. They love the fact that because gin can be distilled with a wide variety of botanicals, the product range is vast and as such, it becomes a very versatile spirit that can be enjoyed in many ways.

Looking Back – Melbourne 2024 Recap
