Innovation at the heart of Australian distilleries

With an award-winning reputation today, Australian distilleries are winning over the palates of their consumers. Sustainability and innovation are major factors in development. Read more here.

The Australian public can be proud of their spirits. Over time, the country has been able to gain ground in the world of alcohol. Examples are Four Pillars, Bass and Flinders and Black Gate Distillery.

Innovation and respect for the environment are the main factors in the development of these distilleries. From the land they work in, to the ingredients they use. Bass and Flinders Distillery has been in business for over 10 years. Their first experiment was to make gin with ants.

Black Gate, on its own, takes advantage of the hot climate of its region to produce whisky. Their spirits find great influence on their bourbon barrels. A decision they made as an independent and autonomous distillery.

Four Pillars Gin, located in the Yarra Valley, was recently recognized as the best gin distillery in the world. Established in 2013, Four Pillars is located just outside Melbourne. This area is known for producing Australian wines, but also has a large gin distillery. At Four Pillars they blend Australian territory with European innovation and aromas.

In Australia there is no doubt that they take what is necessary to be innovative producers. A world that evolves at a fast pace, seducing its local consumers, and without leaving the outside world behind.

Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
