World Gin Day @ Bass & Flinders Distillery

Bass & Flinders Distillery

In celebration of World Gin Day, the Mornington Peninsula’s first distillery, Bass & Flinders Distillery, is hosting a four day gin tasting celebration over the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Bass & Flinders Distillery are hosting three days of gin tastings, complete with live music and food trucks, making it the perfect place to spend a weekend at. Bass & Flinders Distillery are putting on a four day festival commencing on June 10 for World Gin Day. A global celebration of all things gin, World Gin Day takes place the second Saturday of June – ‘coincidentally’ coinciding with the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (cheers Liz!).

Founded in 2009. Bass & Flinders Distillery is the first distillery on the wine-growing region of the Mornington Peninsula. Featuring artisanal gins, brandies and liqueurs, you can indulge in refreshing G&Ts, local food tastings, mulled gin and more over the Queen’s Birthday weekend celebrations that take place from 11am each day.

Originally inspired by the love of classic brandies produced in France, with many of the same French production techniques used in their distillery process. This includes their grape-based premium aged spirits that have been created from scratch at the distillery, using traditional methods from the Charente region of France. Using a gas-fired alembic pot still, Victorian wine is double distilled in small batches – a method that celebrates the flavour provided by the grapes. Drawing inspiration from the landscape, where the ocean meets the winegrowing hinterland, Bass & Flinders are known for their premium aged spirits that has put Australian brandy on the map.
