Manly Spirits Gin

How we make gin

Manly Spirits Co. Distillery Gin range is distilled, bottled and labelled by hand before being sent out into the world from our artisan distillery on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Striving for only the highest possible quality, but also driven to deliver expressions that capture the diversity of Australian botanicals, our team explores above and below the ocean surface to find that something special.

Our distillery has two gorgeous Holsten stills dedicated to the production of our white spirits range. During production our stills, Bella and Jordan, are meticulously monitored by our Distillers for key timings. We choose not to use automatic cuts but rely on the well-tuned noses of our craftsman to ensure we extract as much flavour as possible from our botanicals while maintaining the balance of a pure, clean spirit.

Inspired by coastal living and sunrise swims through the crystal-clear waters of Manly’s famed marine sanctuary, our exquisite Gins are crafted using a carefully-considered blend of sustainably foraged marine botanicals, Australian native and more traditional gin botanicals, balanced neatly with the highest quality Australian grain spirit.

Using only the purest Australian wheat spirit, our gins showcase a bright, fresh citrus nose, balanced with gentle peppery notes on the palate to deliver a rounded, lingering finish.

Australian Craft Gin

At Manly Spirits Co. we have a range of gins to suit all tastes. Choose from our London dry/Australian dry, citrus, pink and barrel aged styles; all inspired by coastal living and sunrise swims and created in our artisan distillery on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Originally distilled by European monks for medicinal reasons, gin has evolved to become one of the most coveted spirits among distillers and drinkers alike. A balanced blend of juniper berries and botanicals, our Australian craft gin is made with local marine and foraged botanicals that rivals the best in the world.

Our award-winning Australian Dry Gin is made for versatile drinking and is equally suited to sipping as it is incorporated into your favourite gin cocktail. Perfect with food or as an aperitif, we recommend watching the sunset over water with a gin martini in hand.

Manly Spirits Co. understands and appreciates how botanicals can emit different flavours within our gins, which is why we actively create different types of gin to suit different tastes. Our exquisite gins are crafted using a carefully-considered blend of sustainably foraged marine botanicals, Australian native and more traditional gin botanicals, balanced neatly with the highest quality Australian grain spirit.

Alongside our traditional London Dry style gin, we have crafted a Coastal Gin bursting with citrus notes, a Pink Gin made with Lilly Pilly, a Barrel Aged Gin and an Amber Spiced Gin, ensuring we have a gin to suit any palette or cocktail recipe.
