Over the past few years distilleries have been popping up all over Victoria, and we are 100% here for it.

We’ve been talking a lot about gins of late, from the best ones made in Australia, to those of the non-alcoholic variety—gin has definitely been top of mind when it comes to finding a Friday evening drink.

Melbourne Moonshine is a small distillery set up in a converted warehouse near South Melbourne Market, which focuses on quality over quantity.

The team have just released their MEMO Gin. A classic London Dry style gin that features 6 botanicals—the standout being Cascar, the cherry fruit that can be found surround a coffee bean. Yep, we finally got that sweet Melbourne coffee gin.

“It’s not the first Australian Gin. There are not 18+ botanicals. There are no Australian Botanicals. There is no ‘marketing ish’. Just delicious Juniper forward Gin. A Gin Drinkers Gin if you like.”

You can get it now at Wine Republic, Carwyn Cellars, or at Melbourne Moonshine.
