Spotlight: Lord Howe Island Distilling Co

22 Mar 2024 10:10 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Nestled amidst the azure waters of the Tasman Sea lies Lord Howe Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Island renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and unique biodiversity. Amidst this idyllic backdrop, Lord Howe Island Distilling Co. was born, founded by two mates, Anthony Riddle and Christian Young, with a shared vision of celebrating the island's rich botanical diversity through exquisite spirits.

Lord Howe Island Distilling Co. stands apart not just for its exceptional spirits but also for its commitment to environmental sustainability. Recognizing the fragility of their island home, Anthony and Christian opted for small-batch distillation, minimising their footprint and preserving the island's pristine ecosystem. By distilling locally and shipping only what's necessary, they mitigate environmental impact while sharing the island's essence with the world.

At their research and development distillery on the island, visitors can now embark on an enchanting journey of gin tasting and so to be making. Surrounded by lush subtropical forests and the tranquil sea, participants indulge in a sensory exploration, savouring gins infused with locally foraged botanicals like the endemic Mountain Rose and native Sea Grapes. Lord Howe is home to 114 botanicals that are found nowhere else on the planet. Each sip becomes a celebration of Lord Howe's unique flora and a testament to the craft of artisanal distillation.

But the experience goes beyond mere tasting; it's an immersive dive into the art and science of gin making. Participants learn the intricacies of distillation while fostering a deeper connection with the island's environment. It's a journey that leaves a lasting impression, blending the magic of gin with the timeless allure of Lord Howe Island.

Lord Howe Island Distilling Co. doesn't just make craft award-winning spirits; they craft unforgettable experiences, where every sip tells a story of nature's beauty and human ingenuity intertwined.
