This year, we collaborated with one of our local heroes here on the Peninsula, Montalto Wines estate in Red Hill to launch our Batch Two limited edition project handcrafted gin.
Key members of the Montalto team participated in a very special blending session. The aim: to create another unique, limited edition, handmade gin highlighting the incredible ingredients found throughout Wendy’s Garden.
“We love creating new gin blends with Montalto as it gives us an opportunity to work with the seasons using local produce from their own garden. Welcoming the team back to work on the second release together was such a wonderful experience, with Julie Bennett able to provide her unmatched knowledge and understanding of their estate gardens, which gave us all a deeper understanding of the different botanical profiles we were working with. With our combined knowledge, and such a beautiful array of locally harvested produce to work with, it was really something special to see the deep connection between the gin itself, and their property, come together to create such an exceptional end product.” says our very own Holly Klintworth, Managing Director and Head Distiller at Bass & Flinders Distillery.
The result is an exquisite limited edition, handmade gin featuring Geraldton wax, rhubarb, and lemon balm along with juniper berries, cassis bark, lemon myrtle, lime and pink peppercorn.
A limited number of bottles of the Bass & Flinders X Montalto Gin Batch Two is now available at Montalto in The Cellar Door or online via the Montalto website.
