The process

We create Antipodes spirits and liqueurs from 100% certified organic neutral spirit. Its delicate aroma and smooth mouthfeel allow the botanicals to shine through.

Our focus on native Australian botanicals enables us to share the world’s oldest flavours and to future-proof niche Australian agriculture by promoting plant species that are designed to grow in our harsh climate, without the use of chemicals and pesticides.

These uniquely Australian Gins and spirits are carefully created from separate botanical distillations ensuring that every batch is consistent from the previous and that each botanical is treated as a hero within the distilling journey so it gets its time to shine.

Distilled with 100% renewable electricity in our Canberra distillery, Antipodes Gin is infused with native Australian botanicals including Kakadu Plum, lemon myrtle, strawberry gum, aniseed myrtle and Tasmanian pepperberry.

Notice some cloudiness in your gin? That’s because we do not chill filter.

This is called flocculation and it’s when suspended oils & esters in the liquid clump together and settle out. While chill filtering may enhance visual clarity, we argue that it also impacts the flavour and mouthfeel of the finished gin.

Our remedy if this bothers you is simple just ‘shake your bottle like you mean it!’ and these little flocks disperse. Always enjoy responsibly and with friends.
