An Australian expression marrying traditional European bittering herbs with predominantly Australian ingredients at its core. The nose is herbal, floral and bursting with bright Riverland orange. The palate is deliciously bitter, fresh and citrus driven.

In 2014 Adelaide Hills Distillery was founded by Sacha La Forgia, a local wine maker who travelled the world for over 6 years working wine vintages and exploring the world of distilling. On his travels throughout Italy he met his mentor, ‘The Italian’, who encouraged him to return to Australia and start his own distillery.

Hand crafting a copper still from the ground up, Sacha is passionate about crafting spirits using Australian produce and values quality above all else.
