Artisan Handcrafted has announced a new brand in their portfolio. Patient Wolf will be distributed nationally through the Melbourne based Spirit company as of 1 January 2018.

Founded by two mates in Brunswick, it’s taken time, jet-lag, hangovers and the best part of three years for Matt Argus and Dave Irwin to launch their hand crafted gin.

And now, Patient Wolf will be available in all states and territories in Australia through 100 proof, ALM & independent wholesalers. Also available at all 70 premium Dan Murphy locations in early 2018.

“We’ve partnered with Artisan due to their strong reputation in the market as the best boutique distributor in Australia. We wanted to be part of a small portfolio of products where bars and retailers appreciated a more curated and thought through list of products. To be alongside brands such as Tromba is great.” Matt Argus, Co-founder

“We have been looking for the right gin for our portfolio and we couldn’t be happier to welcome Melbourne’s own urban distillery Patient Wolf. We see Patient Wolf as one of Australia’s premier gins in the market. With a solid coverage in Melbourne’s best venues and a great brand, it’s time to bring this unique product to the rest of the market” Georgina Wright, Sales Director

About Patient Wolf Premium Dry Gin

Patient Wolf Distilling Co. is a small, boutique gin distillery located in Melbourne’s inner northern suburb of Brunswick. Patient Wolf is born from a belief that well-crafted and considered things have no fear of time. Quality things. Original. Hand-crafted. Defined. Measured. Made with equal parts expertise and attitude.  It takes considerable effort to realise them, and it takes even more to critique and refine. But they’re worth waiting for.
