“Austria-lia”

An Australian can be easily annoyed at their country being mistakenly called, or even confused with, Austria. Here we have a distillery that deliberately tries to confuse without apology. It is indeed the realization of a vision to recreate some magical ambience of the Austrian alpine culture, while serving customers with world-class spirits.

Wildbrumby Distillery is in the heart of the Australian high country. Established in 2005 by Brad and Monika Spalding, it is one of Australia’s first craft distilleries. They met in Kitzbühl on the ski fields of Austria. Monika’s grandfather distilled schnapps on his Austrian mountain farm. Brad grew up in the NSW and Victorian fruit belt, son of a fruit and vegetable merchant as well as publican.

Liqueur schnapps were a hit among skiers and other Snowy region visitors. Next came vodka, then a ‘Spirit of Chardonnay,’ for master of wine, Michael Hill Smith. Brad’s distilling know-how and his almost obsessive focus on his botanical ingredients finally produced the first gin in 2015. Despite this date, each bottle of gin has some ten-year-old backhousia infusion, created years before in the expectation of a far-off gin recipe. Sebastian Drüge assists Brad with distilling and Marie Kugler Managers the café.

Methodology

The Wildbrumby Distillery has a small batch pot still by the name of ‘Florence’. It is the only Ulrich Kothe still in Australia. Their gin is distilled in traditional ‘London dry’ style to create a very smooth and contemporary aromatic profile. Meanwhile the “rubus patch” gin is a raspberry-infusion with their dry gin using organically home-grown raspberries.
