Canberra-based Big River Distilling Co has announced its gin and vodka products will now be available nationally through Mezzanine The Fine Wine Specialist, who has been appointed as the exclusive distributor.

Mezzanine will carry the Big River standard range comprising Big River Dry Gin, Cinn Gin, which is made with fresh pink lady apples, cinnamon, star anise and other Christmas spices, plus the Big River Pink Gin and Three Grain Vodka, made with rye, buckwheat and barley.

Big River Chief Beverage Engineer Clyde Morton welcomed the partnership with Mezzanine, saying: “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 Brand Manager Cassandra Eyres said: “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.”

Morton added: “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.”
