Following on from the sell-out event in Melbourne and lots of readers requests, I’m thrilled to announce Meet the Makers Australian Gin Degustation ~ Sydney, with CAPI once again sponsoring the event.
Ian Glen has devoted his entire career to malting, brewing and distilling in Australia and abroad. His Stone Pine Gin has won Silver in the IWSC Dry Gin category.
Jesse and Griffin were making their gin at their kitchen table, before joining forces with industry stalwart Marcel Thompson who began as a distillers apprentice before going on to work with some of the biggest gin brands around, including Gordon’s and Tanqueray. Poor Toms Gin is the fruit of their labour and the newest Sydney gin.
After falling in love with single malt whisky on a tour of the UK, Craig Johnson decided to leave the rat-race, buy an old bank building and build a brewery and distillery. As well as making a cracking gin, Craig also makes beer and a whisky is in the pipe-line.
William set out to make whisky (his first release with be available soon) but he is becoming very well-known for his range of gins, with his McHenry & Sons Classic Dry Gin recently winning Gold in the US 2014 Sip Awards.
Founder of Mt Uncle Distillery in Walkamin Far North Queensland, Mark has won multiple awards including Double Gold in the San Francisco ISC & Gold in the Hong Kong IW&SC for his Botanic Australis gin.
Each distiller will be sharing his journey from the initial idea, choosing to use native botanicals and the creation of the final spirit, providing you with a unique insight into the world of craft distilling. You will taste each gin neat, then in a cocktail served with a matching dish by The Corner House, Bondi. There will be plenty of opportunities to chat to the distillers and ask questions.
Our venue for the event is The Corner House. Once a stop for the Bondi Tram, this iconic building is now ‘home’ of the quintessential Bondi dining experience.
When: Thursday 5th November 7.00pm
Where: The Corner House, 281 Bondi Road, Bondi.
Tickets: $155 each (non-refundable) and includes drink and canapé on arrival, gin flight and 4 gin cocktails with matching dishes)
