Award-winning gin from a craft gin distiller at Allworth in the Barrington Coast.
We are committed to making gin the way gin used to be made, by a one shot distillation in a traditional copper pot still. Our beautiful still was commissioned to Peter Bailey of Hobart in Tasmania and was precariously road tripped home. Copper is essential to the distillation process as the chemical reaction results in a softer and smoother spirit.
We rest our botanicals on the finest quality neutral Australian sugar cane spirit. This spirit provides a clean blank canvas upon which I can weave my botanical magic. We keep only the very hearts of the spirit and then blend it with purified rainwater harvested from the farm.
People love the native sage in our gin, it smells like the Australian bush.
Australian gins are unique, often containing indigenous ingredients as well as the mandatory juniper. We use native sage, lemon myrtle, anise myrtle and pepperberry, with some botanicals grown on our family farm here at Allworth.
But it's the sugarbag honey collected from native stingless bees that gives The Farmer’s Wife Autumn Dry Gin its signature flavour.
Famous for our Autumn Dry Gin
Tasting our gin, on the nose you are greeted with the distinct aroma of juniper softened by the sweet scent of pink grapefruit and a lingering hint of honey.
When sipped the distinct punchy juniper notes are first and are layered with citrus from the lemon myrtle, zesty kaffir lime and grapefruit.
This is quickly followed by a savoury warmth (not heat) to the palate from the cardamom, pepper berry and native sage.
The Angelica, orris root and liquorice provide an earthy balanced undertone but it is that gorgeous grapefruit and honey that lingers on the palate and leaves you with the feeling and colours of autumn.

Absolutely fantastic gin - my favorite!! My partner bought it from Cork & Glass (Yarralumla) Canberra after the highly knowledgeable staff there recommended it. I wish there were more locations in Canberra to purchase this. Superb gin (love how it goes cloudy).
