Old Youngs Distillery produces premium quality hand‐crafted spirits from Western Australia’s historic Swan Valley and serves them up to lucky locals and visitors alike from their stall within the Tasting Hall at Origins Market in Busselton.
True to their name, Old Young’s brings tradition together with new techniques and a flair for the unusual. They offer up a range of handcrafted spirits that are anything but ordinary! From their recently awarded Pavlova Vodka, to their Cold Drip Coffee Vodka, to their iconic 1829 and Six Seasons Gin, there’s a tipple for every taste! And yes, each one of those spirits, plus 13 more, were handed gold, silver and bronze medals at the recent Perth Royal Food Awards, crowning them WA’s Champion Distiller for 2022.
These master distillers are pretty serious about their craft, but their spirits are anything but serious. As their manifesto dictates: ‘Never stop exploring, never stop learning, share that with others’. In their range of ever growing specialty spirits you could catch anything from smoked vodka, to jungle juice gin, to tzatziki gin! Although you will have to sign up to their exclusive Juniper Club, a monthly subscription which sees a new gin created and delivered to your door each month, to taste the last two!
In the meantime, Warren and the team at the Old Youngs Origins Market stall are serving up any number of classic tastings for you to try right here in the heart of Busselton from 11am Thursday to Sunday.
It’s hard to go past the 1829 Gin with pink grapefruit tonic, Cold Drip Coffee Vodka with spiced cola, or Pavlova Vodka with sparkling cranberry, and the good news is you don’t have to… The team will happily lead you down this handcrafted spirit tasting tour until you find your favourite and can no longer resist the temptation to buy a bottle for home!
As their manifesto goes: Life is far too short, squeeze every drop out of it and, of course… Drink better.
