Original Gin on a Chalmers Wine Aglianico Rose Barrel
It’s hard to contain our excitement when it comes to this particular Gin in our Barrel Aged Gin Collection.
Familiar faces to our Distillery are the members of the Chalmers Family, and so when the opportunity came up for us to work together through wine and Gin we simply couldn’t believe our good fortune. This variety of grape is known for producing full bodied wines with musky berry flavours, the Aglianico Rose Barrel seemed the perfect fit for our vibrant Original Gin.
What has struck us most has been the incredible Rose colour that has been naturally taken by our Gin. The most stunning of pink with the slightest of shimmer, this Gin has an absolute must have for the summer season.

We first met our bearded chilli guy when he reached out to be the beard judge of our first ever Best beard Competition as part of our World Gin Day Laneway Festival.
After becoming a fast friend of us here at Fossey’s, Bonus (the bearded chilli guy) mentioned that he was a prolific grower of chilli’s of all varieties and would we be interested in creating a chilli gin.
Without hesitation, our distiller began the process of trial and error and much experimentation of method and chilli varieties.
Things started to heat up in the Distillery when the latest batch of Chilli Gin caught the attention of our staff and patrons alike and the professional tasting panel gave the nod of approval.
Using a locally grown blend of Cardi Scorpion and Ghost Chilli’s both with their own unique flavour and zing, our Chilli Gin has the most spectacular way of bringing up the heat to “holy wow what’s happening here”, then bringing it back to a perfect balance of lasting tingle and flavour.
A conversation Gin indeed that will leave you mesmerised and wanting more.
We absolutely love this Gin served simply with tonic however why try it in your own version of a Bloody Mary for a little extra kick.
