The Abel Gin Co. and Barossa Distilling Co.

What do wine labels Seppelt Great Western, Jansz, Torbreck and Penfolds have in common? A couple of their winemakers are now distilling gin! Deeksie & Boxy journey down to Tasmania to The Abel Gin Co. for a chat with Kim Seagram (of the famous Canadian Seagram liquor family) and Natalie Fryer. We then return to the Barossa Valley, this time to the Barossa Distilling Co. with Neil Bullock and distiller Peter. Once again we discover just how many distillery founders and distillers have a background as winemakers. Natalie at Abel is, in fact, a South Australian who commuted to Tasmania for years making premium sparkling wine before falling in love with the Apple Isle. She now makes both of her beloved beverages:  gin and now her own brand of highly rated sparkling, Bellebonne. Neil and Peter talk of their wine origins. Before turning distiller – Peter was a wine maker with renowned labels like Torbreck and Penfolds. We also learn more about the increasing trend to combine gin with grape juice or wine. Enjoy listening to our passionate and spirited gin distillers.
