Little Juniper Distilling

While most young lads would sit down with their Dad and enjoy their first beer, at 14 Little Juniper Founder Stuart enjoyed his first sip of a G&T with his mother. At 18, he would frequent the local pub and ask for a G&T. The bartender would pull out an old bottle, the screw top nearly rusted from lack of use, and ask if Stuart was sure he wanted a gin. 

Stuart had been home brewing beer and ginger beer that raised the eyebrows of many a friend so he looked at distilling as a career, however there were few distilleries in Australia at that time. But as we all know, the advent of Australian gin was as if a new spirit had been born. Bold new herbaceous flavours and Australian botanicals that many had ever heard of. 

Come 2019 after a 25-year career in film, TV and visual effects, Stuart started his own small media business, just as Covid raised its ugly head. The plan was to open a distillery in the coming 5 to 10 years, however, that plan had now been accelerated by a world pandemic. Along with the rest of the world, forced to stay at home, Stuart took his business plan and decades of distilling research and made it a reality.
