Wandering Distillery has just opened its doors in O’Connor for gin tastings but it’s not exactly a newbie in the gin game.
Previously based on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, founder and Perth local Wade Willcocks has made the move back to Perth and is bringing his award-winning small-batch craft gin back with him.
While the Signature Gin is the award winner, we think you’d be a fool not to give the limited edition Wandering Star, with its star anise flavour, a try. Only 57 bottles of the stuff have been made so you’ll want to get in quick. For those of you who like it strong, the navy strength Naval Gazing will be right up your alley. All three gins are made with local and organic botanicals whenever possible, so the flavours really shine.
The brand is stocked in a range of bottle shops around WA (and the country), but gin lovers will want to make a booking by calling 0439 131 236 to go in and taste all three before choosing a favourite.
Want to hit the town? Here are the best bars in Perth that you should have been to by now.
