Rockpool Gin Series

Manly Spirits represents coastal living so what better inspiration than our iconic rockpools. This limited release series of four gins features landmark rockpools in Sydney. First up is the Fairy Bower Gin - citrus forward and oh-so-delicious!

Found along the Australian coastline, these rockpools are truly special places and emblematic of our coastal landscape. While they can be discovered across the country, the majority are located in New South Wales.

The Rockpool Series is a tribute to coastal life, delicately captured in watercolour on our labels by talented local artist, Amber Oswald.
Amber brings to life four iconic rockpools; Fairy Bower, MacCallum Sea Pool, Bronte Baths, & Cronulla Rockpools each with her own unique artistic expression.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Crisp and clean, the gin reveals a gorgeous, oily allure

Nose: The first inhalation reveals a vibrant bouquet of fresh juniper, enlivened by zesty citrus notes of blood lime. Delicate hints of coriander seed linger in the background, subtly intertwining with the refreshing essence of cucumber and the herbal allure of sea parsley.

Palate: Upon the first sip, the juniper takes centre stage, unfolding its classic piney flavour with a nuanced complexity. Crisp and invigorating, the lemon myrtle introduces a bright, lemony zest, complemented by the subtle warmth of coriander leaf. The sea parsley adds a unique maritime character, enhancing the gin's depth and providing a distinct earthy undertone.

Finish: The finish is refreshing and lingering, with the citrus elements persisting alongside the gentle herbal notes. A whisper of cucumber adds a refreshing coolness, leaving a revitalising sensation on the palate.

Crafted at Manly Spirits Co Distillery.

​Many of these rock and ocean pools trace their origins back to the 1930's when local councils utilised unemployment relief schemes from the Great Depression era to create employment opportunities and communal pools. Each pool boasts its own distinctive shape and design, contributing to the unique character of its surroundings. Rock pools serve as vital hubs within local communities. They are gathering spots where people come together, teach their children to swim, and enjoy moments of tranquillity while witnessing the sunrise or sunset. They also serve as popular destinations for maintaining physical fitness and well-being.​

THE INSPIRATION

Bronte Baths is located at the southern end of Bronte Beach. Sydney’s favourite infinity pool invites you to linger at it’s eastern edge and gaze out to the Pacific Ocean. Built originally in the 1887 it looks much the same as it did more than 130 years ago. A unique shape includes a sandstone cliff-edge on the western side, white picket fence included, and a half straight, half curved man-made concrete edge on the eastern side, with that classic chain link fence that is more for looks than function. An extremely photogenic pool, 38 metres in length, Bronte Rock Pool has five 30 metre lanes marked, and a divider that separates the lanes from the fun area of the pool.
