Big River Distilling Co teams up with Mezzanine for National Distribution of its gin & vodka

Canberra based Big River Distilling Co is thrilled to announce the appointment of Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist as its exclusive national distributor, commencing this year from 1 February. 

Established in 2017, Big River Distilling Co creates premium quality gin and vodka with all products distilled at its Dairy Road site in Fyshwick, ACT. 

Big River Chief Beverage Engineer Clyde Morton has welcomed this partnership: “My own background is in wine so linking up with a company like Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist is a great fit. Their reach right across Australia, coupled with their very strong on-premise presence, provides a great opportunity to expand the availability of Big River spirits beyond our current markets. “

“We know from our Distillery Door customers that they are keen to find and support Australian producers, and they want to enjoy gin that expands their taste horizons. Our partnership with Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist supports our growth as an emerging company and is a key step in the maturing of the Australian gin scene.”

Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist will carry the Big River standard range. Big River Dry Gin, an Australian contemporary interpretation of a London Dry style, which works perfectly in a classic G&T or Martini.  Our Cinn Gin, a distillery door favourite, is made with fresh pink lady apples, cinnamon, star anise and other Christmas spices, and is often served with a quality ginger ale. It received a Gold medal at the 2021 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards.  Big River Pink Gin features rhubarb and vanilla and works equally well with a strawberry or finger lime garnish.  Our umami-flavoured vodka, made in much the same way as a gin by re-distilling neutral spirit in the presence of 3 different grains (rye, buckwheat and barley), offers a premium quality vodka that can be enjoyed for its unique flavour.

Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist Brand Manager Cassandra Eyres “Partnering with Big River Distilling Co forges an exciting new chapter for Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist and allows us to bring our customers the very best in locally made Australian spirits. We are truly thrilled to have them join our portfolio.”

Clyde concluded: “We know there will be keen interest in Big River products from discerning buyers. Our team looks forward to hearing how stockists and venues present and serve our gins and vodka.”
