Incredible Geelong Dry Cocktails from Anther Bartenders!

Hey Anther fam – we’re proud as punch (with gin in it) to launch our much-awaited Anther Geelong Dry Gin!  

Anther Geelong Dry Gin is distilled with locally grown botanicals including the abundant Saltbush that lines the coast. You could call Saltbush Geelong’s MVP of local botanicals! 😊  

Found in abundance along the coast of the greater Geelong region, Saltbush (also known as Atriplex) is a grey-blue hued edible bush that thrives in the dry soil throughout Australia. Chefs use this in lamb and seafood dishes! Saltbush creates a soft, salty flavour with slightly earthy hints. It mixes perfectly alongside the liquorice root, Geraldton Wax and Finger Lime we use to make Anther Geelong Dry Gin.  

You can grow it in pots and it’s perfect around the coastal areas 

We want to hear all about the ways you use our new gin and to start you on your curious adventure we’ve asked our new bartender legend Nicole Meyers to put together five incredible Anther Geelong Dry cocktails you can try at home!
