A MASTERCLASS EMBODYING THE MARGARET RIVER SPIRIT    SOLD OUT

A BOUTIQUE COMPANY WITH BIG PLANS MASTERCLASS

For a couple whose gin journey began as a competition with a friend to see who could make the best booze, Felix Clarke and Corinna Covner have come a long way. On a whim, they switched from bootlegging vodka to gin and it’s a good thing they did! Only months after officially launching in April, Sydney-based Ester Spirits are already winning some pretty hefty industry awards.

Sydney’s Ester Gin has taken out the title of the World’s Best Navy Gin at the World Gin Awards for their Ester Strong Gin. It’s the second award for the spirit, which took out Best in Category and Joint Best in Show along with Never Never at the Australian Gin Awards 2020.

Felix will run this out of left field class for those interested in hearing about and tasting their winning-streak gin.

A small serving of tapas is included along with a tote bag and a souvenir cocktail glass. Automatic entry into the Palooza follows the class.

Saturday 20 November 12pm – 1pm. Limited to 16 seats.
