Husband-and-wife duo Nick and Ally Ayres started distilling in 2017, and since then their Karu Distillery small-batch gins and vodka have gone on to take home more than 40 local and international awards.

Their two gins are Affinity Gin, which has traditional notes of juniper alongside orange, spice, vanilla, almonds and lemon myrtle grown in the on-site garden; and Lightning Gin, a navy-strength gin with lemon myrtle, ruby grapefruit, mandarin and rose geranium. Both are made using freshly collected mountain rainwater. Meanwhile, the Morita Chipotle Vodka unites zesty lime with floral coriander seeds, crisp green capsicum and sweet agave syrup.

You can pop in to pick up bottles to take away. Or better yet, head to the House of Spirits cocktail bar in Grose Vale to sample the range in a tasting flight, perhaps paired with a cheese platter. The team also make cocktail infusions, which means you can take your gin and tonic to the next level with ‘tea bags’ that add notes of rose and rosella, perhaps, or ginger and Thai lemongrass.
