Hickson Rd Australian Dry Gin is Bartender Magazine's Hottest Aussie Spirit
Hickson Road Australian Dry Gin has just earned the number one spot in Bar Tender Magazine's Hottest 100 Aussie Spirits Countdown. It's all fan voted, so you know it's good.
Hickson House Distillery and Bar opened in 2021 from the Barrelhouse Group (Mike Enright & Julian Train), the team behind the likes of The Barber Shop and the Duke of Clarence. The story started years ago, most likely over a pint, when Mikey Enright first talked to Tim Stones, ex-global Beefeater ambassador and previous head distiller at Manly Spirits. Years may have passed between The Barber Shop opening and a fateful, hungover morning at Tales of the Cocktail in 2016, where the two managed to finally sit down at the Ace Hotel and start imagining what they could achieve together. And now they have taken out the top spot in the annual countdown!
