Banks and Solander Signature Gin is a combination of traditional and native Australian botanicals, inspired by the history of Botany Bay and the native plants catalogued by Banks and Solander. It is an aromatic citrus forward full-bodied gin that can be enjoyed straight with a bit of ice or mixed with your favourite ingredients to make fantastic cocktails.
Banks & Solander is a family owned boutique micro distillery hidden in the back streets of Botany, built by husband and wife team Marty and Ed. Our passion is making fine spirits, hand crafting artisanal refreshments from the best possible ingredients for you to enjoy.
The idea of starting a distillery came back in 2014 after experimentations with a home still. A trip to Tasmania made us realise this was something we could do on a slightly larger scale. From then on it has been a journey, building a distillery from scratch in amongst a growing family. After years of working evenings and weekends we now have a space in which we can house our two modest stills and make the drinks we love. We have developed our signature gin, a limoncello and coffee liqueur and are constantly experimenting, finding new ingredients and combining flavours and aromas to create the next generation of drinks.
