If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably drunk all the wine in your apartment and looking to mix things up a little of a weekend and turn into your very own mixologist.
Luckily for us, our friends at Australia Distilling Co (ADCo.) have developed three quick and easy cocktail recipes to recreate at home this winter.
Here at En-Route, we’re huge fans of 100% Australian owned and made products, especially brands that partner with local producers, and in the case of ADCo it’s local distillers.
Michael Hickinbotham founder of ADCo., has built the brand off his grandfather’s foundations; Alan R. Hickinbotham (a notable man in the wine and spirit space) founded the country’s and one of the worlds, first university degrees dedicated to wine in 1936.
“My grandfather created the foundations of Australian Distilling Co. He was so passionate about creating meaningful spirits that reflected our country and what it has to offer,” says Michael Hickanbotham.
Michael continues his father’s tradition, with each of the 16 spirit varieties ADCo. partners with.
Distilleries across the country and their master distillers explore local ingredients to create flavours that embrace the spirit of the city and region, with each bottle capturing the essence of Australia in a bottle.
Combine Australian Distilling Co. Gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well for 15 seconds.
Strain into a double rocks glass with fresh ice.
