Main Picture

Although originally created as a joke among bartenders in the 1870s, the Tom Collins is a serious drink, balancing acidity and sweetness with the botanical complexity of gin like the whisky sour that inspired it. This stunning interpretation, an ode to the historic coastal city of Geelong an hour from Melbourne, pairs our Geelong Gin’s fruit and spice botanicals with sprig of thyme and a scattering of fresh blueberries.
