The Story Wines is oddly located in the outer southern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.
Now proudly onto our 9th batch of Story Gin, we work with our friends at Gypsy Brewing Co. out at the winery to craft our own spirit range. Using native Australian botanical ingredients, Gin, perhaps more immediately than wine even, reflects the origin of its ingredients. I was keen to create something that tasted distinctly Australian, without veering into caricature.
