Lantana Gin

To create Lantana Gin, we distill our sugar wine with botanicals that include juniper berries, lantana leaf, and finger limes. Some of these botanicals are prevalent locally. Lantana is an introduced garden plant that does very well for itself Australia wide - we are (now fortunate) to have plenty growing in the bush.

Lantana Gin

Introduced into Australian gardens around 1840 for its flowers, Lantana is a typically ‘Australian’ weed. This amazing smelling Verbena, grows readily in the bush at Redridge.

Our farm is located at Redridge in Queensland. Our property is biodynamic in conversion and we work tenaciously towards good farming practices. We keep it little, making it easier to have strong ideas about the politics of contemporary farming.

We built everything from scratch, between four of us, including design and fabricating our copper pot stills. This was both good fun and pretty difficult to do, very rewarding when things worked out and quite informative when they didn’t.

We crush sugarcane to produce a delicious juice. This ferments spontaneously with native yeast into a sugar wine. We can’t really claim this one, as all the little creatures that live locally do the heavy lifting for us.

When distilled, our sugar wine makes excellent rhum agricole style spirit. We age almost all of this carefully in barrels.
