Illegal Tender Rum Co - Spiced

Situated in the town of Dongara, Western Australia. This distillery pays homage to Australia by using uniquely Australian spices to add a different element of flavour found in traditional spiced varieties from the Rum Industry.

Using Kakadu Plum, Quandong, Wattle Seed, Lemon Myrtle and Wild Rosella these spices impart an Australian Bush tucker flair to the traditional Spiced recipe of old. The Spirit is distilled from a fermented ‘Wash’ of Dark Brown Sugarwhich is typically, much smoother than it’s molasses counterpart, then Mellowed with French oak for a minimum of 4 weeks then spiced.

Illegal Tender Rum Co started out as just a dream, something the owner never thought would happen.

A chance encounter with a mad man for rum, Codie had the confidence to go it alone and sell all of his assets to finance his dream - To be a boutique rum distillery in the heart of the Mid-West.

This made for some difficult and exciting times as the comfortable day job he'd once had became a distant memory as the new premise was constructed with suppliers being sourced and local freight companies found, as it became apparent the Mid-West is one of the only places to charge freight on a haircut.

That did not stop him though and with all this happening he was STILL tinkering away at a recipe that would be fit for the masses.

Not just any rum was going to be bottled, Codie wanted a Rum that is smooth enough to be sipped during winter next to a roaring fire but also a mixer you can enjoy down the beach with friends.

All the while taking 1 step forward but 8 steps back with the challenges of being an entrepreneur coming with a few punches, as he wasn't one of the big boys just yet.

23rd St - Vodka

23rd Street Distillery - Riverland Rose Vodka

Twenty three thousand rose petals plucked under moonlight, trod by centaurs’ hooves and small-batch infused in virgin vodka. Strained through unicorn tail hair and bottled directly for your pleasure. Aromas of freshly trimmed lawn herald a nuanced, warm palate. Limited edition, obviously.

METHOD

The sweet, yet bold nosed and Valentine-red ‘Mr Lincoln’ petals, along with a smattering of other mixed blooms are gathered, local and dewy-fresh, at the iconic Rustons Roses, Riverland. Macerated over time in cane based vodka, the petals offered up their heavenly essences which have been small-copper-pot distilled to otherworldly purity. The rosy tint is naturally enhanced with the merest pinch of organic hibiscus petal.

TASTING NOTES

The delicate pink blush of a cherub’s cheek. Aromas evoke a summer’s picnic on manicured lawns, hedonistic yet fresh. There’s nothing blousy, fusty or overblown here. Seductive true rose petal flavours hint at vanilla on the front palate, continuing with a rounded mouthfeel and warm finish.

Enjoy neat, chilled or lengthen with a splash of mineral water or tonic.

Mr Black - Coffee Liqueur2

Mr Black - Coffee Liqueur

The duo of Tom Baker and Phillip Moore have developed a bespoke method of distilling coffee at their Distillery Botanica, located at Erina, near Gosford in Sydney. Sourcing from Glee Coffee Roasters nearby the distillery has been key to the quality of the final product. ”Working with the local roaster we can talk to them about what's working, different flavour profiles, how dark we want the roast. So having a local supplier really helps,” says Baker, whose also the creator and distiller.

 The liqueur employs the cold drip method of brewing coffee. “We find it gives a richer and sweeter flavour and keeps its integrity,” explains Baker. "The control of oxygen (“the enemy of good coffee”) is fundamental to the process. From the day the coffee is roasted, it comes straight to the distillery. It’s then ground and goes straight into a water and alcohol bath that has all the oxygen removed using nitrogen,” says Baker. “It’s quite involved, but the result of getting all the oxygen out of it means you never get a stale coffee flavour.”

 Tasting note: [BATCH 005 tasted] Opaque deep burnt umber colour with sienna brown edges shows some viscosity. Top note is just-opened-coffee-bag-fresh over heavier aromas of cocoa and cafe creme. After several minutes in the glass the vibrancy drops a notch and the aroma shifts towards bitter dark chocolate. Creamy textured, light to medium bodied palate presents with rich mocha, vanilla and dark chocolate flavours rounded off by a very gently bitter finish to balance. Semi sweet coffee and caramel aftertaste. A judiciously poised and authentic addition to the genre.
