Serving Suggestions:

Forager 1 is great neat or mixed. Here are some of our favourite cocktail recipes stolen from cocktail bars around Melbourne:

Forager Spritz: Pour 30ml Forager 1 + 60ml Prosecco + 60ml soda water into a big wine glass with plenty of ice. Garnish with a slice of orange.

Blackcurrant Forager: Pour 30ml Forager 1 + 30ml Ribena + 90ml soda water into a tumbler with plenty of ice. Garnish with blackcurrants.

Dirty Negroni: Stir 30ml Forager 1 + 30ml gin + 30ml sweet vermouth over ice. Strain into a tumbler and add a spoon of olive brine. Garnish with a few oily olives.

Our normal delivery option is with Australia Post. To obtain an estimate of transit times, we suggest using the Australia Post Delivery Time Calculator (the origin postcode is 3015): https://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/calculate-postage-delivery-times/#/

For either shipping option, please keep in mind it generally takes us 1 business day to prepare and pack your order, so that needs to be added to the transit time estimates.

Description:

Distilled and bottled in Melbourne, Forager 1 is a bittersweet liqueur made with a blend of dried oranges, roasted Wattleseed and earthy roots. These native and exotic botanicals are infused in spirit distilled from Australian sugar cane and blended with a spot of earthy red wine.

Now stocked at a number of local independent bottle shops and on the back bar of venerable bars around the country, Forager 1 started as a little challenge for ourselves to see if we could create a world class product using readily available and foraged flavours. We started with orange peels infused in cane spirit. Gradually we added one botanical at a time, trialling everything we could find... including our neighbour's curry tree, wild dandelions and our very own backyard grown Lemon Myrtle and Lilly Pilly. After countless drowsy tasting nights and plenty of failed experiments, we settled on a tincture labelled as "E1v2+S1:1", later renamed Forager 1.

Creating our own spirit also helped solve one of our pet hates - waste! See, we also compile our own Aussie spirit tasting sets (check out our other products), and when we make them, we generate a lot of empty glass bottles. Although these get responsibly recycled, we knew there had to be a better use for them.

So instead of buying new bottles for Forager 1, we've also foraged the damn bottles themselves from our very own tasting set production line. We strip the labels off (sometimes easier said than done) and give them a hardcore hot rinse before a quick polish to rejuvenate them back to life.

This means your bottle of Forager 1 might look different to another. Yep, this is what they say to avoid in 'Marketing 101', but for us sustainability wins and we hope you'll enjoy the peculiarities of your own bottle!
