All aboard Yarra Botanica this October!
In our passionate pursuit of creating distinctive, small batch spirits with a focus on local provenance and sourcing of uniquely native botanicals, we are proud to have partnered with well-renowned floating bar and eatery Yarra Botanica to create a special 2022 limited release Native Victorian Gin.
Inspired by the Port Phillip Bay coastline, sea breeze and rocky shores of the Mornington Peninsula, this classic dry gin features delicious and locally foraged botanicals including lemon myrtle, currant bush, samphire and coastal saltbush and sea kelp.
Set atop the Yarra River on Southbank Promenade, Yarra Botanica is the perfect city location to host this water-inspired tipple.
Native Victorian Gin is now available on board Yarra Botanica’s two levels for the spring/summer season. Gin lovers will be able to enjoy the limited edition collaborative spirit under a native floral installation at the venue, complete with stunning views of Melbourne’s tree-lined Southbank and city skyline.
Perfect with a Spring or Summer-inspired charcuterie board (Yarra Botanica serves these by the metre).

Winner Announced 5th Oct 2022.
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 handcrafted 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...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.
