The Strawberry Gin was developed in 2018 when our local area was impacted by quarantine and later, national food sabotage issues. Due to the restrictions placed on our local growers and producers, large quantities of quality fruit were unable to be sold. We don’t like to see fresh produce go to waste. So, when we were approached by local growers, asking if there was a product that their locally hand-picked strawberries could be used in… We decided to see what was possible… The limited edition, 2020 Dasher + Fisher Strawberry Gin is a sumptuous fresh strawberry gin with floral spice undertones that is delicious over ice or in a cocktail.

An experienced food scientist by trade, George Burgess has years of technical expertise. Working for the food and beverage industry, his job was to eliminate the variations of different seasons and ingredients. Now he’s rebelling, creating delicious fresh flavours by highlighting the different ingredients he finds at his doorstep, embracing the different seasons they are harvested in. While his background is the food industry, it’s the perfume industry that influences him most. He loves to play with multiple layers of aromas and flavours that evolve and add a sense of mystery. A proud Devonport local, he’s been tinkering with spirits for over a decade. Now he has the formula just right. George believes that every sip should give you a sense of time and place; that you should almost smell and taste the season and the landscape. It’s something only a distiller that fully grasps the process, the ingredients and Tasmania can achieve.
