Did you know copper attracts lightning?
That’s why this weekend we brought our distilling equipment inside to INDU.
INDU, a Sri Lankan restaurant in the heart of Sydney CBD, graciously opened their doors to our growing business on thunderous Saturday afternoon to host their monthly Gin and Jazz event.
Yes, while the lighting crackled around our orange van, we were settling inside listening to some live jazz and demonstrating to a sold out crowd of gin lovers our operation and unique tastes.
The first course was paired with our Bobby's London Dry for everyone to get a sense of our Gin’s base flavours.
Arriving soon after was our sweet Clementine and our alternative Young Tom.
With each new flavour, we ran through a few techniques: swishing straight flavours to check for legs, mixing with ice to bring out the botanicals and how to pair tonics with each of our gins.
After the main, we surprised everyone with a glass of our Australian hand-crafted Disco Flamingo's Pink Gin. Unsurprisingly, the response was overwhelmingly positive. One might attribute that to more free gin, however witnessing one or two attendees shaking the last few droplets of red raspberry into their mouths tells us otherwise.
As people left, the focus quickly shifted to our Gertrude (our dazzling orange Kombi) - who could miss her. Gertrude's modelling career has taken a serious uptick, with many a-guest taking one final opportunity to remember the glorious gin afternoon with a cheeky snap inside Gertie.
