Farmers Wife Autumn Dry Gin is crafted on a farm in the small village of Allworth NSW. The Farmer’s Wife boutique batch of hand-crafted gin is an homage to the tradition of gin making and the native flavours of Australia.
The Farmer’s Wife Distillery are committed to making gin the way gin used to be made. This being by batch (one shot) distillation in a traditional copper pot still. Their beautiful still was commissioned to Peter Bailey of Hobart Tasmania and was precariously road tripped home by the Farmer and his Wife. Copper is essential to the distillation process as the chemical reaction results in a softer and smoother spirit.
The Farmer’s Wife Distillery rest their botanicals on the finest quality neutral Australian sugar cane spirit. This spirit provides a clean blank canvas upon which the Farmer’s Wife can weave her botanical magic. Only the very hearts of the spirit are kept and then blended with purified rainwater harvested from the farm.
Their commitment to producing spirits sustainably and in the true tradition of copper pot distillation will also be reflected in their rum and whisky distillation in the future.
Awards: Farmers Wife Autumn Dry Gin was awarded a silver medal in the London Spirits Competition held in March this year. It’s a pretty prestigious competition in the United Kingdom, open to the world’s finest distillers.
