WHO'S BEHIND IT?

Hippocampus distiller

Hippocampus Metropolitan Distillery was founded by a group of friends Alex, Jason and Jye (pictured above in the wheat fields that supply their grain) who all met working in the brewing industry and had a vision of building on their brewing experience and making distinctive small batch spirits in Australia.

Distiller Alex is a craft brewer by trade and gained distilling experience in Norway in addition to some personal experimentation particularly with botanical infusions. Jason has worked in the local beer and wine industry at the pioneering end for more than a decade, whilst Jye has lived and breathed good hospitality and liquor since he was of an age to legally bend a tap and mix a drink behind a bar. Based out of Western Australia, the distillery produced its first vodka batch in early 2015 and their first gin in early 2016. 

    RANDOM FACT

    The “hippocampus” is a part of the brain that forms new memories and connects emotions and senses, such as smell and taste, to memories. 

    Hippo is also greek for horse and kampus means sea monster. Hence the eccentrically dressed seahorse on the label.
