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.
