Cape Byron Distillery

Brookie's Gin & Tonic with Native Finger Lime

New Product Alert!


This season, we’re lifting spirits across Australia with our first premium Gin & Tonic with Native Finger Lime, in a ready-to-enjoy bottle. Low on sugar, delicate in flavour, and 100% natural, this premo-premix is made with our award-winning Brookie’s Dry Gin, and is a true showcase of native ingredients and botanicals hailing from the local surrounds.

If you’ve made the hike to our hinterland distillery, there’s a very good chance that you’ve been treated to our signature G&T garnished with Native Finger Lime! We love it, you love it, so we thought ‘hey – why not bottle the flavours of the rainforest to be enjoyed conveniently anywhere around Australia’.

And bottle it we did!

We know that the modern drinker is searching for quality, convenience and better alternatives. And we’ve heard the call for a premium Australian craft G&T, loud and clear! So, for a space renowned for loads of sugar and fake flavours, we wanted to change the game and bring an unrivalled level of quality and taste. We like to think we’ve created the Goldilocks of G&Ts – not too sweet, not too dry… but a little sipper that’s ‘just right’. We’re stoked that our signature rainforest G&T is now in a convenient bottle, so Brookie’s frothers can enjoy a ‘dry on the fly’ outside of our distillery, anywhere, and at any time. ~ Eddie Brook, CEO & Distiller

There’s a couple of tricks to nailing this mix and we’re more than happy to share our secrets.

Firstly, we opt for our custom dry style tonic. We use 50% less sugar than leading Gin premix brands with 2.4gm per 100ml. This takes out the unnecessary sweetness which often overrides the delicate flavour profile of the gin. Less sugar means less calories! We got chu Summer Bods!

Secondly, it’s all about the quality of the spirit. We use our signature Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, distilled with 17 native ingredients including macadamias, Byron Sunrise finger limes and native raspberries. If you want the best product you have to use the best ingredients. Simple! This pre-bottled G&T sits at 5.6% ABV, approx. 1.3 standard drinks per serve.

Thirdly, staying in line with the Brookie’s rulebook we omit any nasty additives and fake sugars.  This on-the-go G&T is made from 100% natural ingredients!

Finally, it’s all in the twist! Finger Lime is native to the subtropical rainforest of the Northern NSW region. This unique little citrus fruit with caviar-like pearls, bursts with a subtle sweetness and citrus-lead acidity of lemons and limes.
