Matt Schneider's Tribute Gin "Mr Everywhere" $95.00
‘Mr Everywhere’ was a man of vision and purpose; always pursuing life with fierce determination, strength, authenticity, generosity and positivity. He had an infectious drive and boundless energy. He loved the Gold Coast and the people that make the city what it is. This special limited-release gin has been lovingly crafted in honour of ‘Mr Everywhere’, Matt Schneider. Cheers to you, dear boy. To create this release, our team worked with Matt’s family and friends to craft the perfect gin; a gin that Matt himself would have enthusiastically shared with those close to him, and one that evokes memories of many special times shared with Matt. Distilled using juniper, wormwood, orrisroot and wattle seed. On the nose this gin is an earthy and warming delight; this translates quite well to the flavours of the gin, with hints of orange, dark chocolate and roasted cereal. This gin isn’t fancy or like drinking a handful of flowers. It’s a complex, bold and masculine gin, worthy of a strong drink in the company of those we cherish, whilst soaking up the sun relaxing by the beach, or sitting around a fire in the mountains behind the sea. ABV: 40% Tasting Notes: Nose: Earthy and warming delight Palate: Hints of orange, dark chocolate and roasted cereal. Ingredients: Juniper, Wormwood, Orris Root, Wattle Seed Serving Suggestion: Matt always preferred his gin with soda, and this one is no different. It's also perfect for a simple gin martini, very James Bond. Signature Cocktail: "Be Fierce" - A cocktail extremely fitting to the gin. Bold flavours that definitely touch on style, sophistication and a warm hug.
Granddad's Amaro $70.00
In the aftermath of the 2022 Brisbane Flood, our neighbours, ‘Cuttings Wines’, faced a catastrophic loss - hundreds of thousands of wine bottles rendered unsaleable. From tragedy rose collaboration, and thus, this sophisticated caramel Amaro was born. Together, we re-distilled the wine, crafting this Italian-inspired Amaro. For centuries, Amaro has been cherished, not just as a liqueur but as a symbol of unity, love, and the indomitable spirit of hospitality. Often dubbed ‘Granddad’s Drink,’ Amaro embodies the essence of communal strength and resilience. In crafting this bitter, caramel liqueur, we pay homage to those values, reminding everyone that together, we can navigate and overcome any challenge that life throws at us. We’ll drink to that.We hope you enjoy this release as much as we loved making it. ABV: 30% Tasting Notes: Nose: Herbaceous, sweet with an earthy bitterness.

Kate's It's Not Tequila $95.00
This Granddad Jack’s staff release is for Kate Lawler. You'll rarely see Kate on socials or when you visit the Tasting Room because we keep her locked away... just kidding. Kate's one of the most important people at Granddad Jack's and is responsible for replying to your emails and paying the bills. She is the Group Admin Manager and looks after all of the administration and accounts for the business. Thanks for doing the important stuff Kate. Cheers to you and your one-year anniversary, we appreciate you. “For my staff release, I wanted to create something we haven’t done at Granddad Jack’s before, inspired by my favourite spirit - tequila. I’ll keep it short and sweet (unlike myself), there’s no deep and meaningful story behind this one. This Agave Spirit marks the milestone of not being fired after one year – let’s cheers to that!” - Kate Lawler - Group Administration Manager We hope you enjoy this release as much as we loved making it. ABV: 40% Tasting Notes: Overall, a smooth, slightly spiced and earthy character agave spirit.Nose: Citrus, leathery, herbal and hints of olives Palate: Exotic spices, anise, tobacco and dark chocolate Ingredients: Blue Agave Tequilana Syrup Production: Kate's It’s Not Tequila is a unique and refined spirit crafted from organic Blue Agave Tequilana syrup from Jalisco, Mexico. This clear/silver agave spirit breaks away from traditional tequila production methods. Due to limited facilities for processing the agave plant, we have fermented the agave extract rather than the piña. This resulted in an exceptionally smooth, silver, and bold spirit.
Yuzucello 2023 $95.00
This Granddad Jack’s limited-release liqueur is our twist on the traditional Italian Limoncello. Returning by popular demand and thanks to a good growing season, we introduce our second-ever Yuzucello. Made with Yuzu, a unique citrus fruit, originally from China but now popular in Japanese cuisine. The Yuzu has a beautiful lemony, mandarin, and bergamot flavour. We were lucky to source ours locally from Buck's Farm, located in the heart of the Tweed Valley. Buck's Farm has been operated for over 40 years by Gerard ‘Buck’ Buchanan, a passionate farmer and all-around good bloke who was the first commercial grower in Australia. We hand-picked a couple of hundred Yuzus and, once back at the distillery, got peeling! The fresh peels sat for several days, macerating with our Penny Vodka. Then the infused spirit was sweetened with a hint of sugar and just the right amount of fresh Yuzu juice to bring out a brilliant tang. The resulting liqueur has a delicious combination of the tangy and sweet Yuzu goodness, making it perfect for a summer cocktail or as an aperitif or digestif after a night of good food and wine. When enjoying Yuzucello straight, serve chilled (but not over ice) to really savour the flavours. ABV: 25% Tasting Notes:Nose: Sweet and citrus, yuzu forward. Palate: A beautiful lemony, mandarin and bergamot flavour. Ingredients: Penny Vodka, Yuzu Production: At Granddad Jack's, we have always been incredibly passionate about supporting our local communities. We made this liqueur with our Penny Vodka & fresh Yuzu supplied by local producer Bucks Farm.

S'more Please $95.00
At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their first anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside the production team to think up and create their very own spirit. The release is entirely their own, from concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story. But, when your family, this doesn’t usually apply… Luke wanted to surprise his partner Jess with her very own release this year since she’s been with Granddad’s well before it opened five years ago. Jess is our Marketing Manager & Brand Guardian. She has been working in the family business since its conception in 2018, with her role continuously evolving and developing with the brand. She’s a mum to their two boys, 4.5yr old Archer and 5-month-old Arlo, and currently looks after all of the marketing for Granddad Jack’s. Her diverse role includes everything from managing our digital media & design, socials & content creation, website development, copywriting, planning events & activations, managing new product development & limited releases, operations, procurement, cost management and freight & communication with our export partners. Over the years, she’s developed processes across the business, worked in the warehouse, looked after admin and finance and handled all of the customer service for the business. So, if you message us on socials, receive an email (including this one), visit the website, attend any events, or see any of our content (especially with hands or props), Jess is one of the two-person marketing team making it all happen behind the scenes. We're so excited to be able to share her story with you and introduce this special limited staff release. To create this release, Jess worked with Luke to create a cheeky alcoholic version of her favourite campfire treat. The base, a marshmallow essence that carries a slight smokiness. Next, a drizzle of honey and a pinch of cinnamon strikes the right balance and conjures the taste of crunchy, buttery graham crackers. Lastly, strong notes of rich cocoa, paired with a hint of vanilla, add a creamy sweetness that imitates the molten chocolate that binds all of the gooey goodness. “Growing up, the best stories and tastiest treats always seemed to come when sitting by a fire. Whether we were on a camping trip, making bonfires with Nan & Pop down the block, or cozied up by the fireplace - a crackling fire, a stick, and a bag of marshmallows were all we needed for a stellar evening. It felt like time would slow, and worries would fade. It’s that same toasty magic and warmth that we’ve bottled up in my very own staff release as a tribute to my most cherished childhood memories. With every sip, I hope you’re transported to a place of warmth, laughter, and a touch of marshmallowy mischief. This toasty tipple makes a cozy campfire companion and is a spirit that will leave you asking S’more Please.” - Jess Hartley, Marketing Manager There’s no wrong way to enjoy s’mores, and this spirit is no exception. Enjoy with Long Rays Pacific Tonic, with Coke or Pepsi, make a hot or cold chocolate with your favourite milk or try our signature cocktail, Toasty Tipple. Ingredients: Chocolate, Malt Biscuits, Marshmallows, Sugar Syrup ABV: 35%

This vodka blend brings together the creamy sweetness of vanilla ice cream and the bold, exotic flavour of saffron. "Ice cream is my favourite thing in the world. It's not just a dessert but a source of comfort and joy that can transport me back to enjoying a soft, creamy vanilla ice cream in Sweden. On the other hand, my passion for saffron was ignited during a trip to Venice, where I enjoyed the best meal of my life, a ravioli with saffron sauce. I became obsessed with its distinct, aromatic flavour. For my release, I wanted to incorporate this unique flavour combination as a reflection of my two homes and unwavering love for both ice cream and saffron." - Vendela Rivelsrud Crafted with the highest quality ingredients and meticulous attention to detail, Granddad Jack's Saffron and Vanilla Ice Cream Vodka is the perfect addition to any cocktail or served simply over ice.

Ingredients: Condensed Milk, Whey Powder, Vanilla Beans, Meringue Kisses, A Sh*t Tonne of Saffron Production: When most ‘saffron’ spirits only use a few grams, we used close to 30g of saffron to bring Vendela’s vision to life in her staff release. Mica and Vendela worked closely together to create the vodka. They macerate condensed milk, whey powder, meringue kisses, vanilla beans and saffron. Then cooked and vapour infused the spirit with extra vanilla beans and meringue to add sweetness. They added a house-made saffron syrup to finish the spirit, adding extra colour and a truly silky and creamy mouthfeel.

Tom's Strawberry Blondie Gin Liqueur $95.00
Introducing Strawberry Blondie Gin Liqueur, a deliciously sweet concoction created by Tom Lester, Albion Tasting Room Manager, for his first staff release.Tom drew inspiration from all things sweet and dessert-like, resulting in a gin liqueur that combines the perfect blend of white chocolate, strawberry jam, and fresh strawberries with juniper, buttery macadamia nuts, and vanilla bean. Tom's secret mixture of strawberry and white chocolate was added to the gin before bottling, resulting in a unique and delightful flavour profile perfect for those with a sweet tooth. "For my release, I wanted to create a gin liqueur that included all of the sweet dessert flavours I love... sometimes a little too much. I drew inspiration from a Strawberry Blondie slice, and being one myself, I saw the opportunity to share a story from when I was growing up. When I was a kid and all through school, I had an aggressive form of red hair (and what do you know, I still do). I was never a big fan of this, so whenever someone commented on my red hair, true to my self-deprecating nature, I would quickly correct them and confidently remind them that it was 'Strawberry Blonde'. Nobody could make fun of me quite like me. My release is a sweet (but boozy) gin liqueur that's good if you like perfect." - Tom Lester, Albion Tasting Room Manager Nose: Rich white chocolate with a sweet touch of strawberry & vanilla, followed by a hint of macadamia.Palate: Mouth-filling smooth white chocolate to start, followed by the sweetness of strawberry & vanilla with a subtle finish of macadamia & juniper.Ingredients: White Chocolate, Strawberry Jam, Fresh Strawberries, Juniper, Macadamia Nuts, Vanilla Bean, Strawberry Slice.ABV: 40% Signature cocktail: Fair Skinned Ginger Boy Cocktail (each purchase includes a complimentary tasting card and cocktail recipe) Available from: Thursday, 9th March 2023 - 12pm from the Albion, Brisbane Tasting Room only.

Byron's Halo Halo Staff Release $95.00
At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their first anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside the production team to think up and create their very own spirit. The release is entirely their own, from concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story.Our Warehouse Coordinator, Byron Hubbard, is a big part of the behind-the-scenes here at Granddad Jack's, looking after your online orders and keeping everything in the warehouse running smoothly. When he's not carefully curating a playlist to blast out the back, he's labelling and hand waxing bottles, packing your orders or manoeuvring stock around the warehouse. If you've visited our Gold Coast Tasting Room, this won't be the first time you've seen his face since Byron started as one of our casual Tasting Room mixologists! We're so excited to be able to share his story with you and introduce this special limited staff release. To create this release, Byron worked closely with our production team to bring to life a dessert and flavour that sparks one of his fondest childhood memories. Using dried mango, vanilla beans, desiccated coconut and banana chips, the spirit was then vapour infused during distillation with Halo Halo Ube Syrup. The result is a sweet, creamy spirit that tastes like condensed milk, perfect for drinking on ice or adding to your Halo Halo dessert. “For my release, I made a spirit inspired by the Filipino dessert Halo Halo. I chose this because it’s a dessert that represents many fond memories for me, and it’s a delicious dessert that I wanted to share its unique flavours. The main ingredients of Halo Halo include Ube, Leche Flan (crème caramel), Evaporated Milk (or condensed milk), Jackfruit, Mixed Sweetened Fruit and Shaved Ice. Halo Halo translates to “mix-mix”, which is exactly what you do when served with this layered dessert. When I was a kid, one of my favourite memories was visiting my family in the Philippines. One person I loved spending time with in particular was my Lolo (Granddad) Rene. I remember many of the times I spent with him, including afternoons building sandcastles and enjoying Halo Halo by the beach. This sweet but refreshing dessert is a big part of my culture and childhood and something I wanted to share with you in my very own spirit.” Nose: Off the nose the condensed milk and ube is very heavy. This is enhanced when chilled.Palate: It starts off with sweeter notes from the condensed milk and sweetened fruit mix, and is quickly followed by the ube flavour and a subtle hint of jackfruit.Ingredients: Dried Mango, Vanilla Bean, Desiccated Coconut, Banana Chips, Vapour Infused Halo Halo Ube SyrupSignature cocktail: Halo Halo Cocktail (each purchase includes a complimentary tasting card and cocktail recipe) Available from: Thursday, 23rd February 2023 - 3pm from the Gold Coast Tasting Room only.

Tim & The Giant Peach $95.00
At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their first anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside the production team to think up and create their very own spirit. The release is entirely their own, from concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story. Our Mixologist, Tim Hildebrandt, keeps the team and our customers in high spirits at the Miami Tasting Room. Always happy and bringing good vibes, he's become a favourite amongst our locals and knows how to provide the best experience whenever you visit. Tim worked closely with our production team to bring to life one of his many stories with this particular release. They chose to pre-macerate the neutral spirit with canned peaches (and all their juicy goodness) and then vapour infuse the gin during distillation with earl grey tea, dry peaches, vanilla beans, maple syrup and juniper berries. The result is a sweet and creamy peachy gin perfect for an iced tea on a warm Spring afternoon. “This gin was inspired by my Summers growing up in Canada on our family farm. Like most family businesses, we’d work weeks straight in Canada’s hottest weather, with a day off as rare as rain in the Sahara. The only reprieve was knocking off with an ice-cold glass of Nanna’s homemade peach iced tea, made with the very peaches we’d picked that day. Fast forward 15 years later, and my drink of choice to quench my thirst has remained mostly the same, but having grown up just a little, I prefer my “post-work knock-offs” a little stronger. So for my release, I wanted to capture those flavours from my childhood and create the same refreshing experience in an easy-drinking and laid-back gin. ” - Tim Hildebrandt, Miami Mixologist Tasting Notes:Palate: Floral and fragrant notes from the tea, mixed with creamy, sweet vanilla and a mouth-filling juicy peach coating cut through with a piney hint of juniperNose: Sweet, creamy vanilla and fleshy peaches with a hint of floral ABV: 37% Serving suggestions: Try our signature "Peachy Tea" cocktail recipe, or simply enjoy it neat.

Cooper's Cheeky Tea Gin $95.00
At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their one-year anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside the production team to think up and create their very own spirit. From the initial concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story, the release is entirely their own. This has always been a tradition for our Miami distillery team. We've just celebrated our 1st birthday at our second venue, and with this precious milestone, we introduce our very first Brisbane Staff Anniversary Release. Mixologist, Cooper Lockwood, is constantly shaking up a cocktail and conversations at our Albion Tasting Room. He always ensures you're having a good time, and his cheeky sense of humour and colourful stories are always making the team laugh. This release brings to life one of his many stories. To create this release, Cooper worked closely with Mica (our production Queen) to craft a gin representing the flavours and ingredients he wanted to showcase. They pre-macerated the neutral spirit with organic manuka honey, then vapour infused the spirit with fresh ginger, lemon peel, organic hemp tea, organic roasted hemp seeds and juniper berries. "When I was a cheeky young monkey and had the flu or wasn't feeling the best, my Mum would make a delicious remedy that would soothe any sore throat and cure any sickness or stressful moment. She'd make a tea from ginger and lemon and add the secret ingredient of manuka honey, known for lots of supporting immune properties. This tea would get me back on my feet in no time. Now, I have chosen to put my spin on this childhood memory & create a release that combines these flavours and my own cheeky ingredient..." - Cooper Lockwood - Albion Mixologist Tasting Notes:Palate: Piquant and zesty never tasted so good!

Barrel Aged 65 Miles Gin Pack $165.00
Since opening in 2018, barrel-aged spirits have been part of an ongoing project at Granddad Jack’s. Our barrels have housed micro-batch gins, whiskeys, and traditional cocktails like the Negroni, Manhattan, and Martini.We’ve always tried to give new life to a barrel and recycle them for as long as possible to create unique flavours and bring forward the characteristics left behind in the barrel from each fill. This process adds more depth and complexity to a spirit and creates a truly one-off release.This micro-batch of Barrel-Aged 65 Miles Gin spent ten months resting in a barrel that previously held a classic Negroni cocktail made of Campari, sweet vermouth and our Two Pencils Gin. When the cocktail was emptied and bottled, the barrel kept the bold and bitter notes of orange, cinnamon and a barrel spice of vanilla and clove. These flavour elements made it the perfect match for our navy strength gin, 65 Miles at 57% ABV, and just shy of a year later, this paid has resulted in another delicious, one-of-a-kind batch of barrel-aged gin.Nose: Bitter orange peel, cinnamon, clove, hot fruit mince with hints of pastry. Palate: Worn and wintery cinnamon burst over the palate, followed by close and orange. Light hints of cardamom, vanilla cigars & black liquorice join these flavours for a long finish. Serving suggestions: With Long-Rays Dark Soda or in our signature Prehistoric cocktail recipe. Luke decided he wanted to create the cocktail for this one and spent some time learning dinosaur origami... needless to say, the team decided he also had to be the one to create all of the garnishes for the weekend...Each bottle purchase includes a complimentary tasting card with the recipe to try at home (and origami instructions) and share with friends! - Available: 12th August 2022, while stocks last and only from the Brisbane Tasting Room or Australia-Wide Shipping.

Bailiff Whiskey Bank Bag & Ledger $425.00
In 1932 the Bailiff carried an old school bank note bag to collect the final payment for the farm from the young Granddad Jack. He proudly made payment in full, and the Bailiff stamped Granddad Jack's ledger 'paid'. As the next chapter of our Bailiff Whiskey begins, we were determined to create a timeless piece that represents Granddad Jack's values and brings another component to the story. So, this year, we embarked on an ambitious project to create another bespoke item to house our premium, small-batch whiskey releases. In the spirit of Granddad Jack, we've created something to be kept, cherished, and reused long after the bottle is empty. The making of the Bailiff’s Bank Bag: The Bailiff's bank note bag was entirely constructed and finished by the skilled hands of Josef Selway, co-owner and talented craftsman behind the boutique workshop Blue & Grae, located in Albion, Brisbane. This piece was created to represent the old-school bank bag carried by the Bailiff as he approached to collect what was owed on the farm all those years ago. The bag's design and functionality, along with the traditional methods & tools used to craft it, are also a little nod to those from the same era of the story. Every element has been carefully thought about, from sourcing the finest Australian leather & assembling the components with tarnished hardware to represent the age. The dedication to true craftsmanship & meticulous attention to detail shown by Josef guarantees small-batch, quality pieces every time, each slightly different to the next. The story behind the ledger: When Granddad Jack made payment for the farm in full, he had never been prouder. So now, as you join the journey, we mark this moment as you, too, have made payment to the Bailiff. With every drink, we encourage you to celebrate. Share your story & write down in the ledger each time you share a drink and with whom you share it.

Crafted in Miami by our family distillery, every bottle is still hand labelled and waxed by us, ready for you to enjoy.

Golden Oats Moonshine $95.00
Our Golden Oats Moonshine is inspired by the classic Aussie & Kiwi favourite, ‘The ANZAC Bikkie’. The idea of turning this flavour into a one-off limited release originated from one of our Club-54 members and all-around legend, Erick Bonilla, who pushed the project to us at every opportunity. Damn, he was right and what a release it’s turned out to be!Our production Queen Mica Mansfield spent weeks learning specialty fermentation techniques to craft the perfect base for the concoction & worked closely with Erick on flavour profiles. She decided on a molasses-based fermentation, similar to Rum. Then during distillation, she infused the spirit with Toasted Coconut, Rolled Oats and Golden Syrup. Once the spirit was ready for dilution, we needed to bless it with buttery goodness and the sweet finish of a true ANZAC biscuit. Mica did this using two techniques: 1. Back sweetening by making a little syrup addition from brown sugar, golden syrup, vanilla and coconut; and by 2. Fat-washing the spirit with ghee. Fat-washing is an old perfumer’s technique of infusing something oily into retail smells and flavours; however, in spirits, it also builds and holds body and texture, creating a whole new drinking experience. Once the fat has infused, it can be frozen and removed from the liquid.We hope you enjoy this childhood-inspired moonshine as much as we loved making it. Serving suggestions from our Creative Drinks Specialist & Production Assistant, Mica! This delicious moonshine can be enjoyed on the rocks, or pairs perfectly with ginger beer. You can try it in a Dark & Stormy style cocktail or in our signature ANZAC Biscuit Eggnog recipe. You can also enjoy the soldiers' breakfast to warm you up with rum & milk concoctions & serve with freshly baked ANZAC biscuits. Yum! Each bottle purchase includes a complimentary tasting card with the recipe to try at home and share with friends! - Available: 24th June 2022, while stocks last and only from the Brisbane Tasting Room or Australia-Wide Shipping.

Barrel-Aged Barbershop Coffee Liqueur $130.00
Since opening in 2018, barrel-aged spirits have been part of an ongoing project at Granddad Jack’s. Our barrels have housed micro-batch gins, whiskeys, and traditional cocktails like the Negroni, Manhattan, and a Martini. We’ve always tried to give new life to a barrel and recycle them for as long as possible to create unique flavours and bring forward the characteristics left behind in the barrel from each fill. This process adds more depth and complexity to a spirit and creates a truly one-off release.In honour of Granddad Jack’s 103rd birthday and the 48 years he spent as the local barber, we rested our award-winning Barbershop Coffee Liqueur for just over a year in a medium-char, American Oak barrel that previously housed our Bailiff Single Malt Whiskey.This barrel-aged coffee liqueur represents what happens when two of our favourite worlds collide, fusing the traditional components of single malt whiskey with the elements of coffee liqueur. The characteristics of the whiskey & the properties that oak traditionally contributes to barrel-aged spirits heavily influenced the spirit to create this one-of-a-kind release. Every purchase includes an incredibly limited, and release exclusive collectors coin; the very first for our new barrel-aged spirits releases, to be cherished long after the bottle is empty.We hope you enjoy this liqueur as much as we loved making it. Ingredients: Coffee, Eucalyptus, Vanilla, CoconutABV: 25% Palate: Mature softness delivered from the time spent in the barrel, with hints of chewy toffee and coffee candy. Nose: Sweet vanilla cigars, Christmas pudding and the aroma of a busy cafe. All orders will be ready for pickup or delivery from Monday, 13th June 2022 from the Gold Coast Tasting Room. Where shipping is required, orders will be shipped the following business day.
Bri's Distilled Chicha $95.00
At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their one year anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside Luke (Head Distiller) to think up and create their very own spirit. From the concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story, the release is entirely their own.Bri Moore is the Gold Coast Duty Manager and looks after the Miami Tasting Room and staff to ensure we always provide the ultimate experience. In honour of Bri & her travelling experience, we've created another world-first release.Baked Bri is the first-ever distilled Chicha. Due to the lack of historical methods available, we could not brew the drink customarily. However, we could acknowledge the traditional ingredients & methods of the drink to create & distil Chicha de Maiz (corn Chicha)."When I was 12, my family travelled to Peru to walk the Inca trail & explore the Amazon. Here I learned the importance of traditions, storytelling & culture. It's also where I enjoyed my first alcoholic beverage, Chicha. This traditional Andean South American drink has been historically made by women & used by Aboriginal communities through the centuries for ceremonies, rituals, festivities & everyday drinking. You know you've stumbled onto a chicheria if you see a broomstick pole in the doorway topped with a red bag or flag. Now, 12 years later, I've been able to create a distilled Chicha as my limited staff release. It represents my experiences travelling South America and the sense of community & feeling of family that I've been fortunate enough to be a part of & meet while working here. It's a dream come true to share this with you." Ingredients: CORN, CLOVES, VANILLA, FIG CINNAMON, WALNUT, HONEY, APPLEABV: 40% Palate: Clove and rich toffee spring to life first before transforming in the mouth to a beautiful finish of caramelised banana and Biscoff.

Musk Gin Liqueur $90.00
Granddad Jack’s Musk Gin Liqueur pays homage to the classic Australian candy, the Musk Stick. A fan favourite at the local milk bar and school tuckshop, the musk stick brings back the best childhood memories. They could be licked, softened and shaped into stabbing points for jabbing your friends. Yes, you read that right. Didn’t you have the same childhood memory?To make the Musk Gin Liqueur, we dissolved (and ate) a sh*t tonne of musks sticks in a specifically curated gin to create the perfect balance of boozy and fun. After two weeks, the musk sticks had dissolved into the gin, leaving their classic pink colour, and the spirit was filtered to create a consistent mouthfeel throughout the batch. Tasting Notes: Musk Gin Liqueur tastes of pure nostalgia and smells just like it should; sweet, sweet musk sticks. Available: 13th May 2022, while stocks last and only from the Brisbane Tasting Room or Australia-Wide Shipping. Select the option at checkout.

So this year, for the release of our seasonal Pink on Pink Gin, we worked with local florist Haylee from Huckleberry Flowers to create a unique floral arrangement for our 2022 label. We gave her a pretty open brief and trusted her to make something warm and beautiful, with only one actual request. We wanted to incorporate two things into the bouquet. First is the eucalyptus leaf, which is always in around our distillery and the main ingredient in our signature cocktail, Seymour Street. We also wanted to bring a part of Granddad Jack into the label and include Dahlias, Granddad Jack’s favourite flower and what he grew most often in his beloved garden.

Hoppy Day's Gin $90.00
Granddad Jack's Hoppy Day's Gin pays homage to some of our favourite native plants and trees which flourish in our South-East Queensland backyard. We worked alongside hop aficionado farmers from QLD's only hop farm, Hilltop Hops to create the base of this release. Located just 20 mins away from our Albion distillery, we were able to check out the harvest and handpick our very own Columbus Hops.Since it poured down with rain on our visit, we managed to find a semi-dry spot to chat with one of the crew and discuss the origins of the farm, along with how they grow hops and the different types they've chosen to grow. We then dried the hops and blended them with Juniper and locally sourced botanicals including Coastal Wattle Seeds, Illawarra Plums & Cinnamon Myrtle to produce our very own take on a small-batch, native gin. Tasting Notes: Nose: Mix of plum & dried fruit notes with a herbaceous, pine finish and some hints of cinnamon spice.

Sometimes in the process of producing our other spirits we are left with excess ingredients and search hard to find ways of using them. On this occasion, the idea came easy! With balmy summer days already teasing us and boxfuls of excess Ruby Grapefruits before us, our production team’s thoughts went to dreaming up a refreshing, citrus-forward, grapefruit based sweet liqueur and bam! Here it is...Granddad Jack’s Rubycello! A carefully crafted blend of deliciously bitter Ruby Grapefruit juice and its zesty peel soaked in our super-crisp Penny Vodka for two weeks before finishing it into this delightfully sweet tipple. Sip it straight over ice, enjoy with soda or as a sweet little touch in a spritz (think champagne or prosecco). Pool, beach or palm trees is optional! Note: This liqueur is super dense in tasty citrus oils from the peel, which can sometimes separate into little flavour droplets that float in the spirit.
