The Forager, the Distiller and the Chef

The three come together for a night all about gin

Experience native Australian botanicals through a gin tasting and lesson with Anther Spirits and matched dinner at Scott Pickett’s Matilda.

The evening begins with canapés and a hands-on gin tasting on shared tables, experimenting with and learning about Australian native botanicals and ingredients. Learn from Liam ‘the Forager’ from Spurrell Foraging about the native botanicals, all picked 400m above sea level. Learn from Seb and Derv from Anther Spirits about the gin distilling process, and taste how each unique botanical translates into the gin. Settle in for a main course and dessert by Matilda chef Aleksis Kalnins, paired with gin cocktails, then head out into the night on a high with a gin gift to take home.
