Our Cider & Spirits Portfolio

'&'  represents everything else, an award winning Distillery & two Australian Cideries.

Region: Canberra, ACT
Brewer: Ben Holdstock

A designer, a brewer, a pro surfer and a ginger walk into a bar and order a round of alcohol-free beers. Sounds like the start of a joke, right? But when these four mates began their Heaps Normal journey in 2018, they were laughed out of more than one bar for attempting just that.

Heaps Normal was co-founded by four mates, each with their own reasons for wanting to reduce their alcohol consumption. The four joined forces and, after months of R&D, launched Heaps Normal with their first brew, the Quiet XPA. Heaps Normal is a great tasting, non alcoholic beer without the hangover. It’s brewed for people who love a beer, but want to drink less.

Heaps Normal are part of a global movement trading the standard drink for a new drink standard, normalising mindful drinking by brewing beer that tastes so good, you won't miss the alcohol.

Region: Stratham, Western Australia

The team at Runamuk Cider Co don’t play by the rules, they are here to craft their own kind of cider. Runamuk Cider Co, established in 2017, is a family owned and run business situated in the beautiful heart of the South West apple growing region. Handcrafted in WA using local Donnybrook apples, hand crushed, smashed and brewed down the road in Stratham.

Paul Hinton’s Coeliac diagnosis has given his South West family a new direction, a new passion. Frustrated by the lack of options available to him Paul decided to make his own cider. He found what was on offer was either too sweet or contained additives and preservatives. Runamuk Cider Co ciders are made with no additives, no preservatives, sugars or concentrates, the way it should be done, but not the way it’s usually done.

Handcrafted in WA! Donnybrook Grown. Stratham Brewed.

Region: Mt Macedon, Victoria

Winemaker George Cremasco and beer salesman Mike Harris sat down one day to discuss beer and ended up talking only about Gin. From that meeting they have teamed up together to launch Mountain Gin, which after only 12 months has gained international recognition receiving 95 points and a Gold medal at the 2019 International Wine & Spirit Awards.

MOUNTAIN Gin is inspired by locally foraged botanicals. Young pine needles and mountain pepperberry are combined with orange peel, lemon myrtle, juniper and coriander. MOUNTAIN Gin is a clean, vibrant and aromatic spirit reminiscent of fresh mountain air and the smell of tall pines. MOUNTAIN Gin & Tonic cans contain no less than a 45ml pour of 100% Mountain batch distilled Gin, blended with their hand crafted, low sugar tonic to bring forth the sharp citrus character of orange peel and lemon myrtle.
