WHO'S BEHIND IT?

Distillery Botanica master distiller

Master distiller and brains behind the outfit Philip Moore founded and ran a herb nursery business in a previous life before turning his hand to using those herbs and plants in alcoholic spirits. In or about 2007, Philip founded Distillery Botanica (originally called St Fiacre Distillery) in Erina on the NSW Central Coast, producing a range of spirits and liqueurs showcasing Australian native ingredients using his copper Carter Head still. Every batch is made and bottled by hand.

HOW TO DRINK IT - SOME SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Sip this neat on the rocks. Or try this twist on a White Russian as a nightcap.

  • Top with 30ml of single cream (or if you want something lighter, milk)
