From the Northern Beaches of Sydney, an artisan distillery working with local ingredients from Australia’s native pantry, like the stunning surrounds of the Sydney coastline to create exceptional spirits with unique botanical flavours.
Location: Manly, Syndey Australia
Client since: 2019
Products: 5… and counting
Best seller: Australian Dry Gin
The distillery was built to owner David’s exact specifications using his experience as a chemical engineer. His wife and partner Vanessa designed the stunning bottles, labels and branding.
Manly Spirits is a relatively new distillery having been established in 2015 but has already won a host of international awards for the quality of its products and exceptional branding. The distillery’s focus is to take inspiration from the pristine local environment which surrounds it, such as the marine nature reserve of Sydney Harbour.
Their first few products were Australian Dry Gin, Coastal Citrus Gin, Marine Botanical Vodka and Terra Firma Botanical Vodka which use many locally foraged and sustainably sourced botanicals to produce superior spirits with exceptional flavour.
Boutique Bar Brands are the UK agents representing Manly Spirits and we have worked with the distillery from the beginning, to import the products and bringing them to market in January 2019.
In 2019 there is a strong New Product Development program including Zesty Limoncello, Black Fin Coffee Liqueur and the distillery also has whisky resting in a variety of local Australian wine barrels. Building on their focus on locality and provenance, the distillery intends to release a series of fascinating whisky releases using local wine barrels recycled from the burgeoning Australian wine industry.
