Brookies Gin

Brookies Gin

Brookies Gin is an Australian craft spirit made in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It is a small batch, handcrafted gin that is distilled using native botanicals.

The history of Brookies Gin begins with two friends, who decided to create a unique spirit that captures the essence of the Australian bush. The name 'Brookies' comes from the brook that runs through the property where the distillery is located.

The gin is made using a traditional copper pot still and is distilled slowly to preserve the delicate flavours of the botanicals. It is then cut with spring water from the local brook to create a smooth, well-rounded gin.

Brookies Gin can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail. Here are some recipes to get you started:
