This is a gin to celebrate our fire-fighting heroes. As bushfires threatened the Swan Valley and our distillery last month, there was nothing for us to do but batten down the hatches and keep a watchful eye on the winds – from a safe distance! Thanks to the amazing work of our emergency services we were able to return safely to create a 57.7% navy-strength gin. This feisty tribute incorporates smoke-affected grapes from the Swan Valley and comes with a fiery name to match.
Grab some StrangeLove Tonic No.8 and garnish with a lemon wedge.
Some might say that it’s wrong to take a gin and pair it with champagne. But we firmly believe that the Spritz can lift a mood like no other cocktail! With a perfect brightness and unique smokiness, our F*ck Bushfires glows in this cocktail which demands the largest of wine glasses.

This could very well be the ultimate Gimlet. The origins of this classic cocktail can be traced back to the early British Navy, where gin rations were paired with lime juice. Gins of those days were required to be navy-strength - strong enough to ignite gin-soaked gunpowder. Our F*ck Bushfires passes this strength test and its smoky undertones are reminiscent of that successfully lit gunpowder.
