This gin was created in a collaboration Rory Lane from The Story Wines and his friends at the Gypsy Brewing Co. in Patterson Lakes, Victoria. Rory says “I was keen to create something that tasted distinctly Australian, without veering into caricature. Finger Limes, three different types of Myrtle, wattle seeds, lemon scented gum, all transport you to the smell of the Australian bush (or perhaps just your backyard) which is where I want to enjoy some of this with some good tonic over ice on a warm summer evening.”

  • Native Australian Botanicals: Mountain Pepper Berry, Riberry, Wattle Seed, Lemon Myrtle, Aniseed Myrtle, Cinnamon Myrtle, Finger Lime, Eucalyptus Citriadora,
  • Organic Juniper
  • Hand bottled and waxed
  • Individually numbered
  • Hand drawn labels

Producer Profile

The Story Wines

​The Story Wines was established in 2004 by Rory Lane, selecting grapes from small, older vineyards in the Grampians region of Western Victoria. Rory's story isn't the classic one. He wasn't born into a wine family, he didn't make a small fortune in other business before turning his eye to wine, but rather he started small, with fruit from regions he was most passionate about and transported them to a small suburban winery on the outskirts of Melbourne. In a short time Rory has built a reputation for producing soulful wines, that speak of there regions, they aren't over handled and across the range you see a consistent theme of freshness, balance and drinkability.
