I’m putting together an overview of Australian gins for a research paper. ┬áThe first step is to try to identify all gin made in Australia, and then to put together some meaningful analysis in terms of the styles, how they’re made, their place in the market, and ideally some sense of the market as a whole. ┬áHere’s where I am on the first step, and if you know of a producer or gin that isn’t listed, please drop me a line.

  1. wow, i never knew there were so many Aussie gins. I’ve only heard of The West Winds Gin. Obviously the bars seem to favour promoting all the usual imports. I do like my Hendrick’s though. Used to be more a Bombay Sapphire fan too.

    • There are even a couple more I think, though they’re very generic brands that may just be distilled locally – not uniquely local products. I prefer Old Raj when I can get it.

  2. David Baker from Bakery Hill whisky in Melbourne also made a gin but the name escapes me.

    I am very interested in your research paper, any way to see it?
