NEW: Limited release
Botanicals in bloom

As proud partners of the 2024 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show we are super excited to launch our limited edition release BLOOM GIN! 

Bloom Gin captures the very essence of Melbourne's botanicals in full bloom, a vibrant celebration of the parallels between gin and natural beauty. A sensory immersion of colour, fragrance, flavour and texture akin to a meandering journey down the path of a secret garden, awakening the senses and igniting natural curiosity with each sip.

Dive into a world where botanical artistry meets the vibrant beauty of the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. This is the gin to try if you love all things floral. Best served with Mediterranean tonic garnished with rose petals or mixed into any number of floral cocktails.

VERY Limited stock available only from us online, at Distillery Door or of course at Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 20-24th March 2024.

Montalto Bass Flinders Distillery collaboration GIN BATCH THREE
Montalto GIN - BATCH THREE

For the last two years, we’ve collaborated with one of our local heroes here on the Peninsula - Montalto - to create their extremely popular Limited Edition gin. After selling out Batch One and Two, we’re thrilled to let you know the latest release - 'Batch Three' is available now.

This gin has been handcrafted using Bass & Flinders’ Methode Eau de Vie – the art of distilling wine into spirit – delivering a smoother, fuller, richer flavour.

We recommend Montalto Gin Batch Three in a simple, refreshing gin and tonic so you can really taste the distinctive flavours of the Montalto estate.

Just in time for summer!
