Flicking the stitch on for world gin day.

A new Bellambi distillery is flicking the switch on their equipment this week ahead of World Gin Day, ready to start producing tasty new drops for the Illawarra and beyond.

April and Mark Greenfeld of Wolf and Woman will be crafting their own vodka (a neutral spirit used to create gin) before adding botanicals like juniper, coriander and citrus to transform it into the perfect side-kick for tonic.

“If we make it all ourselves, we can keep an eye on the process to make sure everything’s up to standard of how we want it,” Mr Greenfeld said. They’ll also be producing a fine whiskey, but that won’t be available for consumption for at least four years as it needs to be aged in barrels. The pair began creating their own spirits more than ten years ago, with Mrs Greenfeld falling in love with “the science” of it all, while her husband said it was the satisfaction of creating a quality product that got him hooked.

Sitting on the bar top are two small copper stills – one for whiskey and another for gin – the two they began their journey with. Near the centre of the room is the “heart” of the production, a giant copper still named “Sharyon” after Mr Greenfeld’s late mother.

The couple aims to share their wares with tastings and workshops for the public in the next couple of months
