A Collaborative Spirit

Introducing Julianne's Gin by Red Bottle & Goodradigbee Distillery

In the bustling heart of Sydney's Northern Beaches, Red Bottle embarked on a remarkable journey with Goodradigbee Distillery in Brookvale. This partnership was fuelled by a shared vision: to craft a gin that embodies the essence of Australia. Julianne's Gin is the fruit of this collaboration, a narrative of passion, innovation and the rich botanical heritage of our sun-drenched land. 

The Birth of a Collaboration: Red Bottle & Goodradigbee Distillery 

Our adventure began with the desire to not just curate but to create. By teaming up with Goodradigbee Distillery, we found the perfect partner in John and Geoff, whose expertise in distillation and passion for quality spirits was unmatched. This collaboration was not just about making gin; it was about telling a story - the story of our landscape, our taste and our community.

Julianne's Vision: Crafting the Perfect Australian Gin

At the heart of Julianne's Gin is Julianne herself, a core member of the Red Bottle team and an avid gin enthusiast. Her vision was clear: to craft a gin that's authentically Australian, celebrating our native botanicals' unique flavours and aromas. Julianne's expertise and passion guided every decision, from selecting the botanicals to the final taste profile.

Australian Botanicals

The selection of botanicals for Julianne's Gin was meticulous. Australian natives like Saltbush, Finger Lime, Lemon Myrtle, Kakadu Plum and Pepper Berry were chosen for their distinctive flavours, contributing to a gin that speaks of its origins. These botanicals, combined with traditional gin ingredients, created a blend that is as unique as it is refreshing.

The Art of Distillation: A Handcrafted Process 

Our collaboration with Goodradigbee Distillery brought Julianne's vision to life through a careful distillation process. By employing both steeping and vapour infusion, we captured the complex essence of each botanical, ensuring a depth of flavour that is both bold and nuanced.

From Distillery to Bottle: The Personal Touch 

Every bottle of Julianne's Gin received a personal touch, from filling to labelling by hand. This hands-on approach, done by both Red Bottle and Goodradigbee team members, signifies our commitment to quality and the personal connection we share with every bottle produced.
