The Home of Mary Monica Gin

Mary Monica Gins produce premium craft gins, full flavoured, punchy and layered but forever smooth. Designed to drink straight but can be enjoyed with your favourite mixer.

Crafted from the best quality ingredients. Many of our botanicals start with our hands deep in the soil, planting, caring and nurturing each fruit and botanical ready for harvesting. It’s our relationship with what we grow that makes our Spirits exceptionally great.

WHAT’S NEW

Over the past eight years, our family has poured passion into crafting exceptional gins & liqueurs.

Expanded range

Our distillery now boasts a diverse collection of 6 to 7 gins and liqueurs. Each one is a labor of love, infused with the essence of our unique botanicals.

Farm-to-Table Magic

Our food is an extension of our farm. When available, we use fresh produce straight from our fields to create unique, flavourful dishes. From yuzu-infused desserts to sloe berry preserves, every bite tells a story.

Botanical Bounty

Our vibrant botanicals thrive on our Yarra Valley farm. They’re handpicked at their peak, ensuring intense flavours. Whether you enjoy our gins neat, mixed, or in a cocktail, you’ll taste the essence of our land.

Limited Batches

Like the changing seasons, our gin production follows nature’s rhythm. Once a seasonal batch is sold, we patiently wait until our trees fruit again. It’s a commitment to quality and sustainability.

Mary Monica Gin lives on a regenerative citrus farm in the Yarra Valley. We nurture our soil and botanicals to produce the intense flavours found in our vibrant gin.

Our story begins with a love of Gin long before the artisan Gin society was established in Australia. Dry London, Citrus, and Sloe Berry products made up the majority of the Gins on offer back then. We favoured the citrus forward gins but always added extra fresh lime for added zing.

On one of our ski trips to Japan the idea that there are other amazing fruits that could excite the faithful gin lover and enhance a well-balanced gin basket was birthed. Our experimenting began. Oriental was produced. There are more recipes and ideas being tweaked and perfected for the future. However, while we wait for the botanicals to grow our humble beginning starts with “Oriental” a gin we are happy and proud to share with you.
