Gintonica’s Gin Podcast – Series 2 Episode 2

Series 2 Episode # 2 Manly Spirits & Bellarine Peninsula

Deeksie and Boxy have to resort to calling up the distilleries that they really, really want to visit – but can’t. We all know why. In this episode we explore the back story of Manly Spirits Company with founders Vanessa Wilton and David Whittaker as well as Bellarine Distillery with Russell Watson. Established in 2016, Manly were a breath of fresh ocean air to the gin scene in Sydney and New South Wales. They have nailed the spirit of Australia’s emerging liquor scene in a style that should be applauded. Sun, sand and sea has been distilled and bottled for our pleasure. Bellarine’s Russell Watson and his partner Lorelle Warren (not into podcasting we are told), have created a magical destination south of Melbourne, past Geelong and onto a spot they call “The Whiskery” – yes it is not all about gin. Russell explains how it all came about, especially the iconic names of their gins and why it takes an old head to make whisky.
