Tippling Club's first limited edition gin is every bit as cool as it looks

A rebel's spirit

When brilliant minds come together...

Our city's veritable bar scene has always been on a steady climb, but few watering holes actually delve deeper into distilling their own spirits. While a handful dabble into concocting their own, most of them are usually infused into the cocktails, rather than an actual bottle on retail.

Of course, the inventive folks of Tippling Club decided to go against the norm (like they always do) with their first-ever release of a limited edition gin, named Sons of Tippling.

The finished product is a slim, black bottle marked with a pirate skull face. You're looking at a delicious brainchild of chef-owner Ryan Clift, head bartender Joe Schofield, and master distiller James Young. Produced in the award-winning Old Young's distillery in Perth, the botanical spirit sparks notes of juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, liquorice, aniseed, lemon peel and lemon myrtle. A little bit of tang, a little bit of zest — perfect with a splash of tonic water. 

As with every limited EDT, the exclusive batch is only procured in 300 bottles, which will hit the shelves later this month. But if you're looking for a cheeky taste, you can find Sons of Tippling at all Spa Esprit outlets. 

Sons of Tippling is available at Tippling Club and Equatorial Wines from 28 July at $90 per bottle.
