Creating a new chapter in Australian gin distilling, Cape Byron Distillery
in McLeods Shoot sources 18 of 26 botanicals used in their dry gin from local surrounds. Nestled on the Brook family farm, transformed into a haven for birds and wildlife through rainforest regeneration, this distillery pushes the boundaries with seasonal editions like Shirl the Pearl
Named after Eddie Brook’s grandmother, Shirl the Pearl was a pocket rocket, adventurer, skier and one of Australia’s first female pilots. She also made a mean bootleg cumquat gin, which inspired the 2020 edition – we have three bottles of this zesty spirit to give away, with refreshing waves of orange blossom and a long finish.
