On Friday October 1st The Australian Gin Awards released the results of their 2021 competition with Mildura’s very own Fossey’s Distillery bringing home 9 medals, including two GOLD MEDALS for their Navel Strength Gin and Navel Strength Gin Barrel Aged in Chardonnay.

Owner of Fossey’s Distillery Steve Timmis is absolutely thrilled with this year’s results.

“It’s amazing that this competition was able to go ahead at all this year. With ongoing border and lockdown issues and product coming in from all around Australia, and back out again to judges who had to do their tastings and scoring remotely this year, it was quite the effort.”

The Australian Gin Awards once again saw distilleries from all across the nation enter their products in the biggest Gin awards competition in Australia.

“The Australian Spirits industry is a fantastic thing to be apart of. Every year the industry grows, evolves and gets stronger in product development, quality and of course personality. We’re all mates in the distilling field, and it’s one of the most positive and supportive industries to be a part of. There’s a lot of big players in Australia with world renowned products so to go up against them in a competition such as this is always a bit daunting.”

During the Victorian lockdowns of 2020, Fossey’s Distillery undertook a “Covid Project” developing a Barrel Aged Gin Collection by taking a range of their Gin’s and aging them for various lengths of time in different types of barrel’s.

“This was a fantastic project for our distilling team to undertake during the lockdowns last year. It was something fun to do amongst all that was going on at the time, and to walk away with awards for 3 of these in particular has been truly rewarding.”

“We always talk about our Navel Strength Gin being our pride and joy,” continued Steve “so there was no question about including it in our Barrel Aged Gin collection. We let the Gin rest on an ex Chardonnay Barrel from the Barossa Valley and what we were left with is what we describe as a ‘little glass of sunshine’. We also teamed up with local winery Chalmer’s Estate and aged our Original Gin on their Aglianico Rose´ barrel. This is also one of our favourites too and we loved collaborating with the Chalmers crew, so we were absolutely stoked to receive a bronze medal for this one.”

In addition to the two Gold medals for their Navel Strength Gin’s, Fossey’s Distillery also took home Silver Medals for their Original Gin Barrel Aged on Redgum Rum, Shiraz Gin Barrel Aged on Shiraz and Shiraz Gin, plus Bronze Medals being awarded for the Original Gin Elixir, Original Gin Barrel Aged on Aglianico Rose, Frontignac and Kaffir Leaf Gin’s as well.

Fossey’s Distillery like all hospitality and tourism venues, has been at the mercy of ongoing Covid lockdowns and restrictions for the last 18 months and have one very simple message for everyone out there.

“Buy local, and buy direct.” says Steve.

“It doesn’t have to be from us, but locally whether that be in your own town or within Australia, we are all so spoilt for choice when it comes to high quality products. And buy direct. If you can order from a restaurant directly or from a producer or makers website rather than a third party platform, trust us, it will make their day.”

Fossey’s Distillery is now open again for patrons from 2pm every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 110 Eighth Street Mildura, or purchases can be made directly from their website with shipping Australia wide.

Friday 22nd October 2021

17:00 – 21:00 – (JPL – FRIDAY)

(It’s ONE hour longer than Saturday sessions!)

What’s Junipalooza you ask? Let’s break it down:

Juni: An abbreviation of Gin’s signature botanical, juniper.

Palooza: A party, celebration or festival.

Junipalooza: Dozens and dozens of gin makers in one room, sharing their love for the spirit and serving up samples and stories for all to enjoy.

Junipalooza Melbourne is the hottest ticket on the Australian Gin scene, with dozens of distillers gathering under one roof to share their wares with the vanguard of thirsty gin enthusiasts.

The festival is a tribute to Gin, made by people who love it, starring people who make it and filled to the brim with curious minds proffering empty glasses.

They don’t stay empty for long – each guest is given their very own keepsake tasting glass to take around the show. There will be over 50 different distillers sharing well over a hundred different gins between them and you’ll be able to stop by whichever ones take your fancy and try their gins both neat and with tonic.

Junipalooza, now in its fifth year in Melbourne, is a meet the maker festival.

Either the distiller or brand owner has to be there in person – we want you to be able to meet the people that put everything they have into the gins they make. We want you to be able to see their passion with your own eyes and gain some real context about the world of Gin.

The Fascinating Evolution of Fossey’s Distillery

The fascinating Evolution of Fossey's Distillery

Tuesday 19th of January is a big day for Fossey’s!

It is our 4th birthday! And what a 4 years it has been. For those who do not know the story on how Fossey’s was born, here is a small snippet of how it has evolved into a household name in the Sunraysia area and become one of TripAdviser’s highest ranked tourist attraction’s in Mildura! Not to mention, the well-known & recognised Australian distillery trailblazers.

Let’s go back to 2016.

Never being afraid of a challenge is something Steve Timmis, Head Distiller at Fossey’s Distillery is well known for.

And the evolution of Fossey’s has certainly been a challenge.

Steve and his wife, Nadine who is better known as Eddie by her friends & family, bought The Settlers Club around 6 years ago. Known for biting off more than they can chew & then chewing like crazy, this was no different. They were also building their house and renovating another pub at the same time. Or as Steve colourfully described it “that was some sh*t show”.

Originally, Steve had the lightweight idea to make a distillery for whisky. It was going to be more of a lifestyle business with distilling only being done 1 day per week. But the gin gods had other ideas and whilst researching the different spirits he could potentially make, he realised gin was something that could be done whilst he was waiting for the whisky to mature.

Once he made the decision to open a gin distillery, people started looking at him like he had gone a little mad or perhaps drunk too much of his own spirits. There were many who could not see the potential in gin distilling 5 years ago and they made no secret of their doubts. They asked him “what are you doing? And loudly declared “no one drinks gin in this town!”

And perhaps they were right 5 years ago.

But if they did not then, they certainly do now.

Like he normally does, Steve didn’t listen to anyone and got started on the onerous process to make the distillery come to fruition, applying for all the government licences. He had many hurdles to jump because local council, state and federal governments have processes for distilleries to be approved. And of course, he could not start building the still until all the approvals and licences were in place. But once all those boxes were ticked, helped by his son, Adam, Steve got to building the “Stanley the Still”! Once that had been completed, Steve spent 3 months in the still by himself doing the research and development, to get the process right to produce the high-quality gin we know as Fossey’s today!

1 year after giving birth to the idea of creating Mildura’s very first distillery, Fossey’s Ginporium opened with the 4 core products: Naval, Original, Desert Lime & Pepperberry. Pepperberry has since been swapped out for the hugely popular and locally sourced Shiraz.

In the beginning, the Ginporium was open 1 day per week and as it took hold and demand increased, Steve quickly realised he needed to open more. Around this time, another realisation hit. He could not continue to be a one-man band. He had to find some help with the bottling, distilling, labelling, serving etc.

Fossey’s is truly a family owned and run business with all the clan stepping up to offer their talents.

Eddie created the delicious Gin Jam and makes the Christmas pudding which is used to steep the gin in for Fossey’s hugely popular seasonal Christmas Pudding Gin. She is also wonderful with the décor and anything needing to be aesthetically pleasing such for markets and any events. Eddie can be found serving customers in the distillery or just helping whenever needed.  Steve’s motto is “there are no free rides here” so everyone must roll up their sleeves and pitch in when needed. The whole family believe and live by the same thing.

Steve & Eddie’s daughter, Cherie, was starting to transition from being full time mum to working more on the family business. She took on branding & promotion on social media. Her sister-in-law, Kylie Norton, incredibly talented, graphic designer, took on the job of branding and creating all the amazing images we now associate with Fossey’s. Eventually she took on the role of managing the bar, staff, rosters, payroll and according to Steve generally “muscling” him out.

Today, there are 3 female distillers – Tash, Bonnie & April – employed by Fossey’s. Female distillers are something of a rarity in the distilling industry & Fossey’s are proud to be somewhat trailblazers in this regard.

April is Fossey’s newest distiller and Steve’s niece who he lovingly refers to as “Da-Niece” and she lovingly refers to him as “Drunk-le”. As you can imagine, no offence is intended nor taken.

4 years on, Fossey’s has evolved from being a “lifestyle business” to a tourist attraction that locals are proud of. So much for “no one drinks gin in this town!” Fossey’s online presence and sales have grown to such a point as we require a distribution centre to handle all the online orders.

We are also staunch believers in supporting local wherever possible. Over the last 12 months, Fossey’s has sourced everything from the Sunrayisa area except Juniper berries. They are one of the only things that cannot be sourced here because of the climate. Fossey’s import the berries from Ludlow in the UK.

It is a source of pride to our head distiller, Steve, and all the Fossey’s family that out of a glass of gin, 99% of its ingredients are sourced from Sunraysia.

Here’s to another wildly successful 4 years! We look forward to taking the Fossey’s brand into different distillery realms and already have many exciting things planned for the not-too-distant future.

Happy 4th birthday, Fossey’s!

With so many amazing things to do during summer holidays in Mildura, often dinner can be the last thing on your mind when it comes to the end of the day. I have made it a little easier to choose somewhere for dinner by putting together 10 great places to eat in Mildura. 

Not only are these brilliant places to eat in Mildura, but they also serve Fossey’s fabulous bevvies.

Be sure to check them out whilst you are on holidays in Mildura and rate them on Trip Adviser if you had a wonderful experience.

Here are 10 great places to eat in Mildura in no particular order:

  1. Fossey’s Distillery – Of course, Fossey’s is first in line because we are super proud to say we now serve delicious light meals for you to enjoy whilst having a tipple or two. The atmosphere is truly one to be remembered. It is quiet enough to enjoy great conversation, friendly and laid back. You will not find a happier and more distinguished venue in Mildura, than Fossey’s. Our Distillery is kid friendly as well which makes things much easier for parents when craving a Fossey’s on ice. Open Thursday through to Sunday from 2pm you will always find friendly faces when you make your entrance at our fine little gin joint. To reserve a table call 03 5022 8290. Located at 110 Eighth Street, Mildura.

  2. Brass Monkey – This is a personal favourite of mine. Delicious food, groovy table set up and atmosphere! The service is friendly and fast. You can also take children to this little gem. However, I recommend taking something for them to do if you are planning on staying for a while to alleviate boredom. Brass Monkey is open from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch 12 to 2pm & dinner 6 to 8.30pm. To book your delicious meal out call 03 5021 4769. Located at 32 Carter Lane, Mildura.

  3. Sip Cocktail Bar & Eatery – Truly one of the coolest & hip places to eat in Mildura, Sip is a favourite amongst the locals for a drink and bite after work. They cater to vegan patrons and have the most delicious crunchy hot chips I think I have ever tasted. Check out their menu just here. Their cocktails are amazing, and the staff are super friendly & always up for a chat. I would not recommend taking the kids along to this one. To make the most of your time at Sip, it is best enjoyed children-free. Sip Mildura is open Friday through to Monday’s from 4pm. To book flick them an email hello@sipcocktailbar.com. Located at 138-138a Eighth Street, Mildura.
  4. The Corporate Moose – I have to say it, for a regional town Mildura certainly has some seriously cool places to hang out. This is a whisky bar in the city heart with such a fun atmosphere. The food is really yummy. There are menus for both lunch & dinner. I particularly like the American theme. It is different to anything in Mildura and kind of reminds me of a scene from a movie. This venue is also a favourite to listen to live music whilst catching up with your friends. You will find a mixed crowd frequent this unique and high vibe venue. Children are not catered for on the menu so best to leave this one off your dining out list if you have kids with you. The Corporate Moose is open 7 days from 12pm until late. Located at 34 Langtree Avenue, Mildura. To book 03 5022 8608 or email thebar@thecorpmoose.com.au
  5. Thai Riffic – Truly one of the best places to eat in Mildura. With the most intimate setting, the food is to die for and service second to none. The only problem with Thai Riffic is it is so delicious; I find it difficult to STOP eating! Fabulous for couples or groups of adults. I do not recommend this one for the kids because although they are welcome, there is not a lot for them to do. Nor does the menu cater for the kids. Located at 35 Langtree Avenue, Mildura. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 5.30 to 11pm. Bookings are essential. Contact 5021 5225 or email thai-riffic@hotmail.com
  6. Pizza CafeThis little gem right in the city heart, offers a casual setting where you can sit inside or take advantage of the alfresco dining. You can enjoy well priced meals of pasta, antipasto, focaccias, salads and more. Relax in the friendly ambience as you enjoy the aromas of the wood ovens or sit al fresco and soak up the Mildura sunshine. Kids are more than welcome at this venue with the menu having them covered. It is very laid-back with good value for money. This one is top of my list for places to eat out with kids in Mildura. Located at 18 Langtree Avenue, Mildura. To book 03 5023 2223 or info@pizzacafe.com.au.
  7. The Sandbar – A super unique venue to unwind and enjoy some good pub grub at the same time. Kids are catered for on the menu at The Sandbar. The rooftop beer garden and water misting system mean you can enjoy the outdoors whilst enjoying your meals & refreshments. Located at 45 Langtree Avenue, Mildura. Open from Tuesday to Sunday serving lunch from 12pm to 2.30pm & then dinner 6 to 8pm. Contact 03 5021 2181 or malkalms@hotmail.com for more information.
  8. The Province – Definitely one of the most prestigious venues to dine out in Mildura. This up market restaurant is best suited to adults and has a very intimate setting. The menu is traditional Italian dining with a modern twist. The food is lovingly prepared, using local produce chef Matt De Angelo says, “your food is our passion”. Located at 29 Langtree Avenue, Mildura. To book 03 5021 5550 or info@theprovince.net.au.
  9. Stefano’s – The fabulously famous Stefano De Pieri owns this wonderful Mildura eatery! Dine in the glowing cellars of The Grand Hotel in the evening for something incredibly special and an experience you will never forget! Stefano’s food is always second to none and the service is the same. Definitely include this on your “Must Visit List” when in Mildura. Dine without the kids to make the most out of this special culinary experience. The café for breakfast & lunch is kid friendly but does not have a specific menu for the little ones. The restaurant menu is second to none in Mildura. Located at 27 Deakin Avenue, Mildura. To book cafe 03 5021 3627. To book Stefano’s Cantina 03 5022 0881 or info@stefano.com.au
  10. Mildura Working Man’s Club – Known to locals simply as the “Workers” this is very much a kid friendly dining venue. The Bistro caters extensively for children with indoor and outdoor play areas. Food wise the children are taken care of very well with options to tempt even the fussiest of eaters. The menu has all the usual bistro favourites and food is usually served super quickly. I recommend this one for family’s looking for somewhere relaxed to dine with children. Located at 100-110 Deakin Avenue, Mildura. Bookings recommended. To book 03 5023 0531. Bistro opening hours: Monday to Saturday lunch 11.30am to 2pm/Dinner 5.30 to 9pm. Sunday 9.30am to 2pm.

I hope this list makes it easier to find great places to eat in Mildura and you enjoy dining out here as much as we do.

MEDIA RELEASE

 

Fossey’s Distillery wins GOLD

 

On Monday August 31st the Australian Gin Awards released the results of their 2020 Gin Awards, with Mildura’s own Fossey’s Distillery taking home 4 medals including a GOLD Medal for their Navel Strength Gin.

Fossey’s Navel Strength Gin is a firm favourite of the distilling team and their response to the news of this Gin receiving a gold medal was solid and with laughter, “Rightly so!”

Fossey’s distilling team made up by Steve Timmis, Tash Faulkhead and Bonnie Seymour, take great pride and care with all of their work but collectively the team have always been extremely proud of the Navel Strength.

“We want to showcase local products as best we can through our Gin,” says Steve, “and so we chose to make a Gin that was citrus forward with an abundance of Navel oranges. This of course allowed us to have some fun with the name of the Gin and the spelling.”

To be deemed a “Naval or Navy Strength” the alcohol content must be that of at least 57%, presenting a unique challenge of creating a strong yet balanced drink.

“We slightly changed the flavour profile of this Gin compared to the others in our range,” says Steve “We pulled back on the floral notes, really went hard with the navel orange and added a small amount of ginger. We needed to compliment the strength of the alcohol and give it a smoothness that may have otherwise been lost had we not changed things slightly.”

Fossey’s Distillery also received a Silver Medal for their Original Gin in the Australian Contemporary Gin Category and two Bronze medals in the Flavoured Gin category for their Kaffir Leaf Gin and one of their best selling Gin’s, the Shiraz Gin.

Even through the current restrictions and challenges given the global pandemic situation, Fossey’s Distillery has remained a strong local presence and has continued with their seasonal Gin’s, their most recent being the sell out Chilli Gin, and the team have recently released a collection of Barrel Aged Gin’s.

“We started to lay down these in June for World Gin Day as we couldn’t celebrate with our usual Laneway Festival,” said Steve “and the results have been absolutely fantastic and we now have a Barrel Aged Collection with 6 varieties! We are very excited about the collaboration with Chalmer’s Wines with our Original Gin on one of their Aglianico Rose barrel’s. This particular Gin is absolutely stunning and we’re also excited about the Original Gin aged in our own Red Gum Rum barrel. The flavour is unlike anything we have ever had before which makes us more excited for our upcoming release of our new product, Fossey’s Red Gum Rum coming mid September.”

Fossey’s Distillery is still currently open for retail sales from their venue during usual business hours as well as having a permanent weekend set up at the new Mildura Street Food & Co. located on Deakin Ave and open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5pm.

The entire Fossey’s team are looking forward to reopening their distillery again in a few weeks once restrictions have eased.

Fossey’s – The Original Ginporium

Fossey's -The Original Ginporium

Oh how I miss it. Fossey’s – The Original Ginporium.

What a great place to hang out on a Friday night or any night for that matter, with friends at any time of the year. It’s a blessing to have such a treasure in my local town of Mildura. 

What makes Fossey’s Ginporium so amazing? 

Well to answer that I quote Darryl Kerrigan from the legendary Australian movie “The Castle” where he says “it’s just the vibe of the place” but it really is much more too.

If you don’t know the origins of the Ginporium, please allow me to enlighten you. It’s a ginteresting tale and one I think you will definitely enjoy. 

Fossey’s is family owned and operated. Fossey’s is the epitome of a boutique Distillery. 

Embracing family history, sensational local produce and exceptional story telling though the art of Gin & Whisky Swilling and Distilling, Fossey’s has truly embraced the Australian Gin, Vodka and Whisky culture. 

Fossey’s Ginporium is in one of Mildura’s most iconic and historical buildings, The Setts. It is home to Mildura’s first and only Gin Garden and Gin & Whisky Bar.

The unique back story to creating Fossey’s Ginporium:

Well the Fossey name was married into the family in the early 1900’s and as was tradition then, it was given as the middle name to the first-born son John Fossey, known to everyone as “Foss”.

A name that stood out, those who have it as their own have been of creative mind. Of pioneering spirit. Those with the name are usually proudly misunderstood!

The Fossey’s have lived by principles and ideologies that have been passed down through generations and become known as “Fosseylosophies” which we have based our Fossey’s Ginporium business principles on.

Foss’s Grandmother (who he never met) raised 6 children alone, while running a pub in Ludlow, United Kingdom. Coincidentally, this is the same area as our Fossey’s Gin Juniper berries come from.

One of her sons, Albert, migrated to Australia and married Elsie Vera. Elsie was small in stature but big in spirit nothing would faze her. She bought up 4 children (one of them Foss) in Koorlong before there were established roads and power. Elsie was always one who rolled up her sleeves and got on with the job. Growing up in the sticks, Foss thought the best things he had ever seen were running water and knives with a serrated edge.

Were these the things to ginspire big ideas and Fosseylosophies? 

Who knows? 

His execution of big ideas could be somewhat erratic at times and misguided at best, but Foss was truly an original entrepreneur.

Pioneering land (well outside Mildura) which wasn’t being used for anything else, Foss went on to create something that is still an icon of Mildura today – Timmis Speedway.

Foss and his young family farmed a property in Mourquong. Growing fresh fruit still to this day, this particular block is where our Fossey’s Original Gin Elixir bergamot oranges and tangelos are grown.

Father to our Master Ginnovator, Steve Timmis, who embodies the pioneering spirit and big ideas like his dad. Only perhaps with a slightly straighter forward strategy to implementation, the fundamentals of Fosseylosophies live on when developing something truly unique.

Ginterestingly, speaking of creating something truly unique, Foss’s great grandad Vere Quaile who was a blacksmith living in the Bacchus Marsh area, along with his son Edward, were the ones to create Ned Kelly’s armour.

So why create gin?

Well creating gin encompasses everything Fossey’s want to represent.
First class second to none products. Creative interpretation everything. Good fun, good times, good friends, good drink. Fossey’s has huge ideas conceived in a small space with crazy deadlines.


And then of course, there is family. We believe nothing is more important than family.

Fossey’s ginporium is a lasting legacy for Izzy May and Zeb Fossey (5th generation Mildura-ians). These two little ones have “fossmerized” grandfather – Steve Timmis, nana – Eddie Timmis and their mum – Cherie, into doing what they do best to create and bring to Mildura something never seen or done before.

That’s it. The tale of how Fossey’s Ginporium came into fruition. And thank the gin gods for that.

Cheers,

Narelle
