With bottles as beautiful as the gin is, you’ll want to keep them long after the gin is gone
Created by Catherine and Gary, a husband and wife team, Big Tree Distillery’s gin is distilled in the Macedon Ranges region of Victoria on Jack’s Springs Farm. They craft small batch Australian gins using the finest ingredients, from botanicals grown on their farm, foraged from their local neighbours or, where something more obscure is required, sourced by our gin-loving botanist. Featuring artwork by local artist Sarah Gabriel, with limited editions of each piece in the series, their bottles look beautiful on your shelf. Delicately distilled using collected, fresh rainwater, their gin is perfect to try on World Gin Day.

Their still is lovingly referred to as Beryl – a beautiful copper construction, Beryl’s materials play a vital role in the creation of Big Tree Distillery’s spirits. Reacting with the molecules in the distillation process, the copper helps to produce a naturally clean and smooth spirit by stripping out volatile compounds and removing any unwanted flavours and aromas from the final product. With a 300 litre belly, Beryl is a one of a kind still designed by Knapp Lewer in Hobart. With its unique shape, it’s designed to achieve the right amount of internal reflux which helps to achieve the gin’s flavour.
