In celebration of Australian country living and rural communities, two courageous and innovative business women have come together to collaborate on a special release of Quince Gin.
When Claire moved to her family farmhouse in Rupanyup, Victoria, she planted a quince tree. The durable plant has grown with Claire through droughts and floods - always a reminder of where she began.
Tucked away in the quiet Glenpatrick valley of the Pyrenees Ranges, Mrs Baker's Still House is a female lead micro-distillery making award winning gins and liqueurs. It’s a family affair with Jane working alongside her two daughters, Elizabeth the distiller and Georgette the designer.
The two businesses have collaborated to make the fruits from this tree into a limited release of Quince Gin. Made to be enjoyed in the garden, where both Claire and Jane are inspired everyday to create.
This is a deliciously sweet gin with lots of rich quince and dried fruity flavours. It can be enjoyed as a classic gin and tonic or lightened up with soda water. Because of its deep warm flavours it also makes a lovely sipping spirit; in a small glass, over ice.
The stunning label on this special release 200mL bottle is a watercolour illustration by Georgette.
The gin collaboration has strengthened the connection between the two businesses, supporting local, and creating a simple luxury that people can enjoy while nurturing the things that matter most to them.
