We don’t know about you, but every time we open up a newspaper… we need a stiff drink. Luckily, our great state is home to some stand-out spirits. Here are just a few of our favourites to ease the news cycle.

Whipper Snapper Distillery

Founded with the help of a WWII vet and his backyard moonshine, Whipper Snapper have gone on to create one of Australia’s finest premium whiskeys. Crafted with 100% WA ingredients, starting with corn, barley and wheat grains for their Upshot whiskey, to Australia’s first commercially grown quinoa from Narrogin for their Project Q Quinoa Whiskey, these guys are committed to the craft. Feeling adventurous? Try the Crazy Uncle Moonshine, the first legal moonshine in Australia, or Jetpack Hard Coffee, a coffee and whiskey hybrid made with local roasters Timely.

Rottnest Island Gin

Most Perth-dwellers have a fond memory or two of summers on Wadjemup, taking in the salty air and the native botanicals of the island. Don’t you wish you could bottle that up? Well, the same thought occurred to Wine Thief owners Damian and Nicole, and voila! Rottnest Island Gin was born. The signature botanical note captures the spirit of Rottnest through the Rottnest Island daisy, and a portion of the profits go towards vegetation rehabilitation programs on the island.

Sin Gin

A chance discovery of a distilling licence, a grandfather’s 100-year-old aquavit recipe, and a love of gin and tonics: the magic ingredients that led founders and hoteliers Kate and Mark to create Sin Gin in 2017. Starting as a nano distillery in West Perth’s Murray Hotel, their popularity has necessitated a move to larger premises in the Swan Valley. The Seven Deadly Sins series is their flagship range, created with a combination of botanicals that evoke each sin. Think coriander, stinging nettles, devils claw and skullcap forming the bold flavours of Wrath, or the truly Envy-inspiring range of Australian native botanicals: mountain pepper berries, wattle seed, aniseed myrtle, lemon myrtle, peppermint gum and quandong.
