Nip of Courage signs Black Gate Distillery
Sydney-based liquor distributor, Nip of Courage, has signed up its seventh Australian distiller, Brian Hollingworth from Black Gate Distillery. Black Gate Distillery was opened by Brian and his wife Genise in Mendooran in January 2012.
They currently produce small batch aged releases, including Single Malt Whisky and Single Barrel Rum. They also produce vodka and Quandong Liqueur – made from an indigenous peach. Hollingworth produces his own wash and primarily ages the spirits in Sherry casks, which gives a delicate, smooth mouthfeel.
Nip of Courage now carries Australia’s largest Australian craft spirit portfolio.
