The Mildura Field Days always attracts a wide variety of exhibitors, everything from agricultural farm machinery suppliers and ancillary product manufacturers, work wear and safety equipment retailers and much more – you name it – and it was bound to have been there this year, including Mornington Peninsular based Gin maker ‘The Original Spirit Co.’

Kevin and Lorraine Nolan were soaking up the brilliant Mildura weather which Kevin said he had brought with him from Melbourne for the event as they worked on the company’s stand located just inside the main entrance.

“We are based in Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula and the Original Spirit Company is a family-run business,” Kevin said.

“Everything is handcrafted in small batches made from real fruit and real botanicals, to produce quality spirits.

“Lorraine and I work for the family as part of a small crew.”

The family has German Heritage and it’s been a lifelong passion for them to get into business and make your own liqueurs and spirits and that’s what they have been doing.

All of the product used in the distilling process is sourced locally with the exception of the juniper which comes from overseas.

A specialty of the Original Spirit Company is their delicious pink grapefruit and pomegranite Gin Fusion.

This fruity creation results in a clean fresh tasting cocktail with what is described “as a stunning grapefruit bitterness” which it is suggested should be garnished with mint and lemongrass to finish.

This Ginfusion is made from 100% premium natural ingredients and delivers a deep, sweet and satisfying taste sensation.
