At Fossey’s we put our heads together to come up with 7 ways to cope with lock down this time around for our fabulous community.

We know a lot of folks are really feeling quite angry and anxious about the way things are in Victoria right now. And we feel the first first lock down was definitely quite a different mood to this one. Many Victorian’s are wondering just how they are going to cope with stage four restrictions, when stage 3 was brutal enough already. 

We feel your pain and the ever creatives here at Fossey’s, have come up with sure-fire ways to help you cope with this lock down even better this round. 

So, we have come up with 7 unique isolation cocktails for you to busy yourself in the kitchen with.

Here we go with our fabulous Fossey’s Isolation Cocktail recipes are created by Nathan (everyone’s favourite bearded bar man in the Still):

  1. Mildura Sunrise
  • Top a large glass with some crushed ice
  • Add 1 shot of Fossey’s Navel Gin
  • Top with orange juice
  • Add a dash of raspberry on top
  • Garnish with a fancy schmancy umbrella
  1. Pink Lemonade
  • Top a large glass with some crushed ice
  • Add 1 ½ shots of Fossey’s Broken Heel Gin
  • Top up with half lemonade and half orange juice
  • Add a dash of raspberry cordial
  • Garnish with some lemon quarters
  1. The Vodka Caprioska
  • Use a smaller glass and just a scoop of ice
  • Cut the tails off a lime, and slice into quarters
  • Add the lime quarters and some brown sugar into a glass and muddle together
  • Top with 2 shots of Fossey’s vodka and stir it all together
  • Garnish with a lime wedge and feel fancy
  1. The Lake Cullulleraine (usually called a cape codder)
  • Served in a small glass with a small scoop of ice
  • Add 1 shot of Fossey’s vodka
  • Served with a splash of cranberry juice
  • Garnish with some fresh mint (from the supermarket if need be)
  1. The Breakfast Martini
  • Combine a spoon of Gin Jam
  • A shot of Fossey’s Original Gin
  • Half a lemon squeezed
  • Shake in a cocktail mixer vigorously and strain into a martini glass
  • Garnish with a lemon peel

  • 6. The Monday? Or is it Wednesday?

  • In a tall glass
  • Add 1 shot of Aperol and 1 shot of Fossey’s Shiraz Gin over crushed ice
  • Top with half orange juice and half Prosecco
  • Garnish with orange slices
  • 7. The Don’t Tell the Kids It’s Whisky

Ingredients

Method

  1. Muddle together the fresh mint, sugar and lime in a tall glass.
  2. Load with ice,
  3. Add the whisky and top up with soda water.

My suggestion to enjoy these to the fullest is connecting over FaceTime with friends or family. I think it makes lock down go faster. It also does not seem as isolating if you to continue to share a drink and laugh with friends even if it is through screens. 

Bottoms up & chin chin, gin lovers!

Until next time,

Two Medals for Fossey’s Gin from the Australian Distilled Sprits Awards!

The Australian Distilled Spirits Awards held their presentation night last night in Melbourne on Thursday April 4th for the best of the best in Australian Distilled Spirits.

Fossey’s Gin is proudly able to add another TWO MEDALS to their growing collection bringing home a Bronze Medal for their Original Gin Elixir and Silver for their Navel Strength Gin.

“When you go in these awards, you’re up against the best in the business,” says Cherie Gowers, manager of Fossey’s Gin. “The entrants are from all around Australia and it’s an absolute thrill to even be in attendance at these presentation events let alone be able to take something home. To say we’re proud and excited is an understatement.”

Last year Fossey’s Gin was able to claim two Silver Medals from the same awards, which saw them, receive an invitation to participate in the ‘Winning Taste Pavilion’ at the Royal Melbourne Show held in the Master Chef TV Set.“Hopefully we get the same opportunity again,” says Cherie “It was a fantastic experience for the team and another amazing opportunity to spread the word about the fantastic things that are happening in Mildura and encourage visitors.

Fossey’s Gin recently won 5 medals at The Australian Gin Awards and with the two from the 2019 ADSA can now claim 9 medals for their Gin in total.

Fossey’s Gin bring home 5 Gin Awards!

Thursday March 7th saw the Australian Distillers Association Inc. hold their inaugural Gin Awards in Sydney.
The awards were created to shine a light on the excellence of gin production and along with 180 gin entries submitted by 66 Australian Gin Distilleries, Mildura’s very own Fossey’s Gin participated in the awards for the first time and excitedly brought home 5 medals.
With Dead Man’s Point Spirits from Tasmania, Split Point from The Great Ocean Road, Cedar Fox Distilling Co. from Victoria, Kangaroo Island Spirits from South Australia and Red Hen from South Australia all being awarded the ‘Best in Class’, Fossey’s Gin held their own in their categories against some of the best in the industry.
A Bronze Medal was awarded to their Original and Shiraz Elixirs and Fossey’s Navel Strength and Pepperberry Gin received Silver, but a happy surprise for all was the Frontignac Gin Elixir bringing home a GOLD medal.
“Sneaky little Fronti” says distiller Tash Faulkhead.
Described as one of the more complex Gin’s to distill, the Frontignac Gin certainly made Fossey’s distillers Steve & Tash work for the fabulous and delicate flavour from the beginning.
Working with the local wine makers at Cappa Stone Wines, Fossey’s Gin distillers Steve and Tash trialed this Gin with great success until it was created on a larger more commercial style.
For reasons known to absolutely no one, the end result had substantially changed meaning the quick thinking distillers had to create and implement a triple distilling process along with a wish and a prayer for success.
The Fossey’s Frontignac Gin made the team work for every drop but are absolutely certain that their dedication and unwavering loyalty to the dream of Fossey’s White Grape Gin has not only paid off but also exceeded the highest of expectations by becoming a Gold Medal Winner.
Fossey’s Gin is one of 40 distilleries who will remain in Sydney for the 8th and 9th of March to participate in the first Sydney Gin Palooza.
This Sold Out two day event will give distilleries the opportunities to liaise with professionals within the industry during trade sessions and showcase their products to fellow Gin enthusiasts from the general public.

The Gold Medal winning Frontignac Gin is described as a subtly sweet Gin with stubborn undertones and challenging characteristics, but well balanced with the flavours of delight and happiness.
