We can barely keep up with all the new spots popping up around Perth at the moment, but when you hear that the guys behind Strange Company and Ronnie Nights are opening a gin distillery in Fremantle, well you stop what you're doing and you listen up.
The Republic of Fremantle has been in the works for a while now, but they've recently found a spot to call their own on Pakenham Street and it's going to be ha-uge—like 350 people huge!
The guys will be making the gin from scratch—out of wine, no less, this is a true blue WA operation after all—at the distillery (duh) but there will also be a bar and restaurant and they'll be holding gin making workshops too—so you know where to book your next team building activity.
Sadly for us, it doesn't look like the bar and restaurant will be opening until next year. At least you've got plenty of time to hone your gin tasting skills then?
