Vintage Queen


Vintage Queen

BEC HENDERSON & THE TEAM // Seppeltsfield Road Distillers

A cocktail fit for a queen and a community celebration.

Created with a limited-edition Vintage Festival Gin (a collab between Seppeltsfield Rd Distillers and Barossa Vintage Festival), the Vintage Queen cocktail delivers a sweet flavour with nutty and buttery textures, think traditional Bienenstich and German Cake in a glass.

Head Distiller, Nicole Durdin, has balanced the traditions and memories of the past with a modern approach, and crafted a balanced and beautiful gin that heroes classic German baking spice mix.

With Apex Bakery Bienenstich and German Cake the inspiration for the limited-edition Vintage Festival Gin, expect subtle flavours of honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and a lingering creamy finish with a ‘very familiar’ and equally delicious flavour profile.
