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.
the family tree
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.
Navy Citrus Gin
Our Navy Citrus Gin is the overproof, rich and full-bodied version of our Citrus Gin. Native species including Lemon Grass (C. ambiguus) offering earthy citrus notes, Sweet Peppermint leaf (A. flexuosa) providing sweet undertones and fresh citrus lifting the spirit to help 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.
