Roots of our location in Perth, Western Australia are traced back to the founder’s immigrant Croatian Great Grandfather who set up market gardens on the land in 1946.
Worked by three generations, the land is again being used by the fourth generation to handcraft spirits.

"Imagine the scents of the
West Australian bush after rain"
Our Flora Gin uses West Australian native species including Geraldton Wax (C. uncinatum), Bottlebrushes (Callistemon R. Br) and Sweet Peppermint leaf (A. flexuosa) to generate a herbaceous flavour that could only come from the evolution of West Australian Flora in our geographical isolation.
Our Citrus Gin is inspired by native species including Lemon Grass (C. ambiguus), offering earthy citrus notes along with Sweet Peppermint leaf (A. flexuosa) that provides a sweet undertone and fresh citrus lifting the spirit to help create a delicate and rounded West Australian gin.
"Aromatic fresh citrus on the nose that leaves a subtle, earthy citrus tone on the palate that will linger well after that first sip"
"Fresh Juniper on the nose moves onto subtle sweet citrus at the back of palate, a gin that won't get lost in a cocktail "
Our Navy Citrus Gin is the overproof, juniper forward, full-bodied version of our Citrus Gin. Juniper has become the hero with native species taking a back seat but that’s not to say they’re not there. Natives including Lemon Grass (C. ambiguus) & Sweet Peppermint leaf (A. flexuosa) along with fresh WA citrus, help lift the spirit to create a powerful style of overproof West Australian gin.

At Bombak Distillery, we distil our gin using the traditional roots of the “one-shot” method. Some gin purists consider this the only true method of making gin. The proportions of botanicals are separately weighed, macerated (soaked) in our Australian neutral grain spirit and batch distilled.
In comparison, some distilleries use the less costly “multi-shot” method, whereby huge amounts of botanicals are distilled to produce an intense gin concentrate which is then mixed with neutral spirit and water.
We believe the romance of our method using a flame driven copper pot still, although more laborious, creates a distinct and
unique flavour profile
that we are proud of.
