Australian Gin Makers List

LAST UPDATED 1 July 2021

Here is the definitive list of Australian Gins with links to their makers which I update monthly, and my reviews which often include an interview with the distiller.

The links will take you to either their website, or a social media channel in case they don’t have a site up yet.

Note, this list does not include multiple gin releases from each distillery.

Gins of various standards have been produced in Australia for quite some while, and one of the earliest references to a commercial gin production is from 1926 from the Federal Distilleries in Port Melbourne (established in 1888 producing mainly whisky) who produced a gin called Crystal Court.

Today we’re living in the golden age of Australian craft gins with inspired use of local botanical  giving them a distinctly Aussie expression. There seems to be no sign of the boom slowing down and I’m adding new makers every two weeks!

If you know of any I’ve missed please get in touch.

Are we at Peak Aussie Gin yet? Here’s some of my thoughts on the matter…. read on.
