It all started with a “borrowed” parcel of Shiraz grapes from the back of a mate’s winery in 2015... 

We were happily making gin out the back of our mate Rob Dolan’s winery when a tiny parcel of Shiraz came in from one of the region’s best vineyards. Rob wasn’t sure what to do with it, so we kindly ‘took it off his hands’. 

Cam, our head distiller, steeped those grapes in high-proof Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks before pressing them off and the result was alcoholic alchemy. The juice turned a magical purple colour and found a sweetness straight from the ripe grapes. Then we mixed it in with more Rare Dry Gin to create the perfect balance of citrus, spice, sweet fruit and ginny goodness.

For our 2024 limited-edition bottle, we wanted to showcase a scene where Bloody Shiraz Gin is best enjoyed – over a busy table filled with great food, great drinks and great fun.  

And who better to do this than someone who works in our great drinks industry? Enter artist and Melbourne hospitality legend, Kris Leombruni, the brilliant mind behind the 2024 Limited Edition Bloody Shiraz Gin bottle design.

The marriage of Rare Dry Gin botanicals with the most delicious Shiraz fruit on the planet. No added sugar. None. Ever.

This is unmistakably a gin, but it’s not like other gins, so there’s one question we get asked a lot: how do you bloody drink it?

Try it first in a G&T with a big squeeze of lemon, then have a go at one of these cocktails:

Our experimental approach to gin making has led us down some interesting paths. Our Bloody Shiraz Gin uses grapes from local Victorian vineyards.
