BASS & FLINDERS DISTILLERY: GINS
An award-winning selection of carefully handcrafted gins to suit any spirits lover. From hints of juniper and zesty lime to the more adventurous flavours of cardamom, orange and native pepper berry. Try our unashamedly fresh, fruity, floral Cerise Gin or our uniquely Australian Angry Ant gin - inspired by the flora and fauna found in the Australian outback, crafted from a wide range of native botanicals. Proudly the first distillery on the Mornington Peninsula, we are dedicated to remaining true to our region, through the use of local, fresh or native ingredients wherever possible, to produce fine spirits.
BASS & FLINDERS DISTILLERY: SIGNATURE GIN - SOFT AND SMOOTH
Classic dry gin with a native Australian twist. Traditional done differently.
Our signature gin. Our original gin. Inspired by our coastal home on the Mornington Peninsula, where the sea meets the vine growing hinterland, our Signature Gin – Soft & Smooth is a celebration of the very best of classic dry gin with a truly Australian native twist. Carefully handcrafted in genuinely small batches using traditional techniques, with our unique selection of the finest botanicals, to create a lively, contemporary version of the quintessential classic gin.
Sleek, citrus-forward and grounded by juniper, angelica and liquorice root, this gin is interlaced with cardamom, lemon myrtle and lime for a fragrant, soft and smooth finish.
BASS & FLINDERS DISTILLERY: HEARTBREAK PINOT NOIR GIN
Contemporary native & Australian. For lovers of Pinot Noir and gin.
Heartbreak Gin is for lovers of Pinot Noir and gin alike and represents Bass & Flinders Distillery's natural progression from producing grape-based spirits to fortifying Mornington Peninsula's premier grape variety - Pinot Noir, with gin.
Pinot Noir consistently ranks amongst the world's most prestigious drops. Finesse and grace are its strengths but it's well known as a fickle variety to grow. In the vineyard it breaks the heart of many growers, and once in the winery pinot noir is the most honest of all wines, leaving zero tolerance for mistakes. Great pinot noirs are achieved by a lightness of touch and by taking great care. This is why Pinot Noir is known as the Heartbreak grape.
Heartbreak Gin is ruby red with purple hues. Complex and perfumed with notes of sweet red fruit, spice and floral highlights. Sweet spice carried by our eau de vie grape based spirit distilled on-site sweeps through the palate opening up into brooding dark pinot noir fruits finishing pleasantly textural and savoury with juniper, herbal and oak nuances. Think fresh, floral and fruity.
Enjoy neat over ice as an aperitif. Serve in cocktails like our Lovers Revenge or in The Heartbreaker G&T with Mediterranean tonic, garnish with scorched orange rind, rosemary or sage. Pair with traditional pinot noir dishes such as roast lamb or duck a l'orange.
BASS & FLINDERS DISTILLERY: SPICED CHRISTMAS BRANDY
The taste of Christmas in a bottle.
A premium Australian brandy infused with a selection of spices and fruits, inspired by our Head Distiller's own fourth generation family Christmas pudding recipe.
The subtle sweetness of this delectable spiced brandy comes from steeping all of the Christmas pudding ingredients for more than 10 days - including dried apricots, cranberries, orange zest and nutmeg, plus a unique blend of whimsical Christmas flavours including frankincense and myrrh.
Hand-crafted by our artful distillers in very small batches where old world traditions meet new ideas. A truly Australian brandy made from 100% Victorian Chardonnay sourced from a single vineyard and matured in ex-Cognac barrels between 2-6 years.
A world first, our Spiced Christmas Brandy is a celebration of brandy and all things Christmas. When we think of Christmas we think of brandy. Delectably more-ish, fun and festive, a modern version of centuries old traditions.
Bright golden amber in colour with sweet doughy aromas infused with classic Christmas spices, dried fruits and citrus rinds effortlessly intertwining with a subtle spearmint high note giving our Spiced Christmas Brandy a beautifully layered nature.
Medium in body, sweet spice, apricot, currents and orange rind up front open reveal a spicy mid palate blend of nutmeg, native pepperberry and cassia, finishing cleanly, with vanilla carrying all the spices, driven by lip numbing clove for a long delectable finish.
BASS & FLINDERS DISTILLERY: LIMONCELLO - BITTER AND TWISTED
Classic Italian lemon liqueur.
A refreshing lemon liqueur created from a closely-guarded and highly celebrated Bass & Flinders recipe using zest from the highest quality Victorian lemons. Originating from a traditional Italian family recipe, this citrus-flavoured liqueur was our very first handcrafted spirit. With blissful images of coastal Italian seaside towns, we set out to produce a perfectly balanced summertime digestive.
Organic, Victorian lemons are hand zested in our distillery and infused with our very own secret ingredient that adds complexity and silky texture to this classic Italian liqueur. Ultimately fresh, our Limoncello strikes the perfect balance between tart and sweet, juicy citrus and tangy acidity, bitter but not twisted.
Bursting with freshness. Fragrant lemons, our handcrafted grape-based spirit, still water and sugar infuse together to create a pure, all-natural, refreshing lemon liqueur.
Serving suggestions: Zesty with a touch of sweet and incredibly versatile, this deliciously balanced Limoncello is best served straight from the freezer, over ice or mixed into a summertime cocktail. Try our Raspberry and Limoncello Spritz for a deliciously festive spritz that is fruity and light.
