Meet the Maker!

On Saturday May 14th we're hosting Nick Bombak, the Master Distiller at Perth's Bombak Distillery. Bombak Distillery’s award-winning gins have received accolades from the Perth Royal Show, Australian Distilled Spirits Awards and Australia Gin Distillers Association, and they're about to add a new, exciting gin to their star line-up; Pickle Gin! Join us for this one-off event as Nick pours his freshly bottled Pickle Gin alongside his award-winning Flora and Citrus Gins.

Bombak Distillery is a family-owned & run distillery located in Osborne Park, Western Australia. Our location is traced back to our immigrant Croatian Great Grandfather who set up market gardens on the land in 1946. The land was worked by three generations including our father and is again being used by the fourth generation to handcraft spirits. Nick has a passion for creating contemporary style gins focusing on using Western Australian natives and fresh WA ingredients to produce truly unique flavours. Nick is an Environmental Scientist by trade; holds a Bachelor of Science and qualifications from the Institute of Brewing & Distilling.

This is a complementary tasting in the Loft that runs from 4pm - 5.30pm on Saturday, May 14th.

Langhe Nebbiolo Weekend Tasting

Date:

Friday 27th, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th of May, 2022

Details:

Complimentary. Open to taste in the Loft

If you’re a red wine lover, Langhe Nebbiolo has a lot to offer. From its complex palate and refined texture to its beautiful array of red fruit and floral notes, this wine is a great alternative to the more expensive Barolos and Barbarescos! Langhe Nebbiolo is often seen as the younger sibling of the more sophisticated Barolos and Barbarescos. And while the wines have similar floral aromas and red fruit flavours, they differ in a few ways. This weekend we have 3 benchmark Langhe Nebbiolos to taste: 

- Bruno Rocca Langhe Nebbiolo

- Josetta Saffirio Langhe Nebbiolo

- Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo
