Upcoming Events + News

Tune into Canberra radio station 2CC on Sunday 3rd December at 10am for my next media appearance to talk all things spirits and cocktails!

Somehow I’ve also washed up on the ABC’s Country Breakfast and Rural radio shows too in November talking about the rise of the cocktail culture here in Australia and the Martini.

I’m also part of a special Gin Xmas Gift project- see here for details , and I’m a contributor to a new guide on Australian and New Zealand Gins being released next year- swing past my friends at Gintonica for more info. Update: Sold out!

You can see a clip from the event on my facebook page here. You can read all about it, plus a recipe here.

Remember to keep an eye on my definitive lists of Australian Gin, Vodka, Rum and Single Malt for new releases as they come out with links to their website.

So I’d better get cracking then – happy cocktails friends!
