Gin Company

Inspired by a cultural capital, the Melbourne Gin Company (MGC) was established in 2012. Founded by Andrew Marks, a Yarra Valley winemaker living in inner city Collingwood. Andrew sought to doff his hat to London Dry Gin by creating the very first Melbourne Dry Gin, pioneering a new local industry while merging twin loves for gin martinis and his hometown.

MGC seeks to pay homage to a city celebrated for its culture and worthy of its own unique spirit. Made in stills that were designed for making perfume, the MGC makes classic gin with a twist of Melbourne. MGC takes an innovative approach to distillation. Its gins incorporate locally grown and native botanicals and fresh local rainwater.
MGC Melbourne Dry Gin was the very first Australian gin to be launched with such ambition and paved the way for the emerging local gin industry.

The MGC is an independent distillery with an artisan production approach. Our gins are hand crafted, batch distilled and non chill filtered.

“Every time it is served, the martini represents a journey towards an unattainably ideal drink”

Frank Moorhouse

The Still Story

The MGC uses stills that are designed for making perfume. These stills allow the best expression of delicate botanicals through a gentle distillation process. Botanicals are placed in the “chamber of secrets” at the heart of the still which is surrounded by a water jacket. Heat is applied to the water jacket which transmits a constant, even heat to the chamber, ensuring a delicate extraction.
