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."
