MELBOURNE GIN COMPANY
Established in 2012 by Andrew Marks, The Melbourne Gin Company specialises in hand crafting, batch distilled and non-chill filtered dry gin. Andrew began experimenting with gin in 2009, when he was a winemaker by trade. After chatting with friends over a few martinis, he brought a miniature pot still about the size of an espresso machine. A few years later, and with a much larger pot, he moved his gin operations out of his flat and into his family vineyard in Gembrook.
Melbourne Gin Company Dry Gin provides an excellent example of new-world gin, where more adventurous flavours are explored but still acknowledges London Dry Gin.
