Meet Kurt Melross, the curator and creator behind the Gins & Tins event. Gearing up for its 2nd instalment, featuring Granddad Jack's Distillery and Black Hops Beer.
What inspired you to start the Gins & Tins event?
To give the community the opportunity to experience both Gins & Tins at a reasonable price, collaborate with brands and create awareness on the quality of craft products. I wanted to give some of these brewery's and distilleries a platform to educated people on their products and show the hard work that goes into it. Im also trying to keep it Australian and support Australian manufactures.
Whats your favourite thing about gin?
My favourite thing about gin is probably that we can use natures garden to create such a beautiful product, especially with the Australian products, using native botanics and drawing those flavours out and bringing them to life is pretty incredible!
Whats your favourite thing about beer?
My favourite thing about beer would have to be the process of mixing all the ingredients together and getting the perfect balanced product, whilst still having so many flavours in it.
Any ideas on who you want to get involved next?
I would love to get Stone and Wood and Brookies Gin on board because they’re both Byron based and I love product.
