  • Slow. wins Gold at the IWSC

    Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin takes out GOLD, Mac. by Brookie’s & Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin return with SILVER! Based in London, the IWSC is widely considered one of the most credible competitions of its kind. The sweet little sipper is masterfully created in the style of traditional English ‘sloe’ gin with a twist unique to its Byron Bay surroundings. Instead of sloe berries, we turn to Davidson’s Plums, an indigenous fruit found in the Northern Rivers area, as a replacement. Hundreds of kilos of Davidson’s Plums are laid to rest with Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin until the colour of the fruit has naturally imparted itself into the spirit along with flavours of sour cherry, plum and rose.
