Distillers in Australia have been quietly and quickly breathing a bit of life into the craft spirit space for the last few years, combining their iconic climate with their eclectic range of native ingredients to produce fantastic, game-changing liquids. And Manly Spirits, the latest acclaimed import from down under, are no different.
Founders David & Vanessa and Master Distiller Tim Stones (ex-Global Brand Ambassador for Beefeater who learnt to distill under iconic Master Distiller, Desmond Payne) have captured the spirit of Manly perfectly, carefree beach life combined with urban sophistication, resulting in a range of Australian gins, botanical vodkas and liqueurs that are absolutely delicious.
Botanical Vodkas are set to be huge over the next few years, as people move on from the juniper renaissance, so Manly’s Botanical Vodkas have arrived just in time.
The Marine Botanical Vodka is inspired by Manly Spirit’s proximity to the sea, made with hand-foraged sea parsley and beach-cast kelp. The botanical vodka itself does bring you straight to the seaside, showcasing savoury, sea air notes on the nose, balanced with gentle umami flavours on the palate and a gently peppery, crisp and citrusy finish.
Our sipping suggestion is enjoy in a dirty Martini, garnished with pickled onions.
