The Farmers Wife Gin Distillery
The concept of the Farmers Wife Distillery was formed sharing a fine gin with friends. Living in the country, as 3rd generation farmers, we were inspired to share our love of country life and our passion for creating something unique. I knew it had to incorporate all of my passions: I wanted to create something that encompassed my love for growing food and gardening, my love of family, friends and community and the idea of mastering different flavours to produce something unique and special.
The Gin is created on my farm in Allworth NSW, this small batch of hand crafted gin is my homage to the tradition of gin making and the native flavours of Australia. Native sage, myrtles and pepperberry along with our signature native sugar bag honey bestow their magic upon this gin, layering each sip with a refined local flavour.
