  • A toast to World Environment Day

    We’re excited to celebrate World Environment Day June 5, coinciding with World Moonshine Day, by donating $15,000 to Stone & Wood’s inGrained Foundation – a national not-for-profit also based in the Northern Rivers, who support grassroots, environmental and social charities in the local areas where we work and live. Sustainability and regeneration efforts are in our DNA. Supporting local community regeneration is at the core of what we do, so making this peculiar ‘beer spirit’ with Stone & Wood Brewing Company was a no-brainer.
  • The Pink Pam ~ A Brookie’s and Stone & Wood Collaboration

    We've joined forces with Stone & Wood to ensure that on Mother’s Day 2021, you’re going to be the favourite child. Delivered in a picture-perfect box, Stone & Wood’s The Gatherer sits lovingly aside Brookie’s Slow Gin, patiently poised for Mother’s Day and the pouring of The Pink Pam cocktail. Exceptional for sharing and easily made, The Pink Pam is a thing of beauty. With a blush hue, flower garnish, and served in Brookie’s glass jars, it’s the ideal refreshment to mark a special occasion.
  • The Water of Life Exclusive Screening

    Exclusive Screening of The Water of Life and Q&A with the filmmakers and the people who created the beautiful spirit.
