Original Gin on Barossa Valley Chardonnay Barrel (natural)
Our Original Gin is the epitome of a contemporary Australian gin.
Using native botanicals and fresh local citrus with a fabulous grape spirit base, this gin is taken to the next level when laid in a barrel that once held a quintessential Australian Chardonnay from the Barossa Valley.
Taking on the most subtle of Chardonnay colour with a shy oak flavour, the smoothness of this drop can be attributed only to the fabulous quality of our own grown grapes and the love and care gone not only into the Gin and how it was laid down, but to the wine that was once in this fabulous oak barrel.

Directly from the mouth of our head Gin Distiller
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.
