Art of Booze – Opening Soon
Brisbane botanical lovers, listen up – we’re on track to get our first dedicated inner-city gin distillery! The brainchild of Peter Jaffe, Matty Parkin and Joel Robertson, Art of Booze is a small-batch gin business that is branching out into its own space. Inspired by the small-batch spirit scenes of Sydney and Melbourne, the trio was originally interested in opening a craft brewery but decided to get into distilling after seeing a gap in the Brisbane-based market. Using their backgrounds in food science, hospitality and marketing, the guys took three years perfecting a gin that is now available at select bars, restaurants and bottle shops across Brisbane. At the moment the gin is produced out of Flinders Peak Winery, but a custom still from Germany is due to arrive in the coming months for Art of Booze’s own bricks-and-mortar distillery. A permanent location is still being finalised, with hopes of setting up shop in the inner-city surrounds of Brisbane.
