Original Gin on Fossey’s Port Barrel
With the direction of Whisky and Rum being on the cards for Fossey’s Distillery, we laid down our own Port Barrels a few years ago in anticipation of where we were heading with our range.
With the depth of flavour and colour now where we would like it to be, we were able to pull of the port just in time to lay down our Original Gin Elixir in these barrels.
The sensational port barrel colour of this Gin gives you an indication to the robust and woody port barrel flavour and is drop we know you’ll enjoy savouring at the end of the day.

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.
