A surprising Gin that has impressed us to no end, our Duchess Grey Gin is pretty but dare we not underestimated her as delicate.
A strength in flavour Gin but soft, so so soft, dear Duchess has captured our highest of expectations and carefully but confidently carried them above and beyond.
Taking French Earl Grey Tea and infusing it with our floral forward Original Gin, she then brings herself to a high society of flavour darlings, balanced out perfectly with fresh citrus to create a smooth and dare we say creamy, Duchess Grey Gin.
Now, being the hoity toity tots that we are we like to mix a double Duchess into a tea pot, top with tonic and then pour into a large tea cup with ice and fresh lemon slice garnish.
A serving completed only with a sneaky little side biscuit.
A sophisticated afternoon tea indeed for any Gin lover!

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.
