Gin lovers turn themselves into gin distillers

Big Tree Distillery is the brand of gin-loving husband and wife farming team Catherine Crothers and Gary Jago, who love good gin so much they decided to make their own. 

Big Tree Gin is distilled in the Macedon Ranges region of Victoria with the boutique facility on Jack’s Springs Farm at Newham producing a range of farm-crafted, small-batch Australian gins using rainwater from the farm, which also produces grass-fed lamb.



The entire Daylesford-Macedon region is becoming a hot spot for artisan food, wine and spirits producers. 

Big Tree Distillery’s bottles are designed to be kept long after the gin is gone, with the artwork painted by local Macedon Ranges artist Sarah Gabriel with limited editions of each piece in the series. 

The range includes Elegant Dry Gin and Claude Navy Strength Gin - and you can sample and buy them at Woodend Farmers Market on the first Saturday of each month and Lancefield Farmers Market on the fourth Saturday of each month. 

A tasting facility on-site is expected to be completed by November, but also look out for Big Tree's VW Bug 'Gin Bug' which will appear across the region as a 'pop up' bar and sales vehicle.

You can also buy the gins at the Prince Wine Store in Melbourne.
