Papa Salt

The Australian gin brand Papa Salt Coastal Gin is coming to the UK to be found at the high-end department store Harvey Nichols. The brand, founded by actress Margot Robbie and friends, has previously only been available in Australia and New Zealand.

The gin is inspired by the scents and taste of the Australian seaside, using ingredients like oyster shells, pink peppercorn, and citrus peel, and is distilled in a copper pot still for smoothness.  With an abv of 43%, the 700ml bottles will cost around £40 (approximately €50) and will be available from June 20.

“We are so excited to bring Papa Salt to the UK market,” said Charlie Maas, co-founder and CEO of Papa Salt. “We fell in love with gin in England’s wonderful pubs, clubs and bars, and we hope Papa Salt is a refreshing addition to the wonderful spirits culture of the UK!”

The gin has won awards, including a Gold Medal at the 2024 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Best in Show at the 2022 LA Spirits Awards, which has raised its international profile and led to interest from home bar builders as well as professional bartenders.

The gin is recommended for a classic gin and tonic using a dry tonic like Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water, as well as for use in savory drinks like a dirty martini (adding olive brine to bring out the salty flavors), a negroni (with added saline for a salty kick), and the refreshing summer beverage a Salty Dog, which uses grapefruit juice and salt for a tart, chilled drink perfect for warm evenings.

Robbie’s personal recommendation, according to Grazia, is to serve the gin with salt and soda, garnished with orange rind and a crack of black pepper.

Empress 1908 Gin

In the hierarchy of spirits, gin is a bit of a wildcard. Whether you’re talking about single malt Scotch whisky, tequila, bourbon, dark rum, or even vodka, you can easily explain why it’s a great choice for someone who has never had it. Gin isn’t so simple. Gin is a love or hate-it kind of spirit. Either you love it because of its piney juniper and various herbs and botanicals, or you think it tastes like a mixture of body wash and grandma’s favorite potpourri.

If you love it, you’ll spend all summer enjoying its complex flavor profile in Gin & Tonics, Gimlets, Gin Rickeys, and every other gin-based drink. But if you aren’t fanatical about the spirit. The appeal of juniper only goes so far, and you start looking for other spirits to mix with, right? Well, what if you had a gin that began with all of your favorite juniper, herbal, and botanical favorites but also added fresh, refreshing cucumber and sweet, citrusy lemon into the mix? That sounds pretty good, right?

Watches in this Jack Daniel’s collection feature the brand’s wooden barrels
Want a whiskey barrel watch face?
Original Grain Jack Daniel's watch collection in case

The best things in life tend to combine multiple passions, so if your favorite Tennessee whiskey is Jack Daniel’s and you love stylish wristwear, then your time may have come. The legendary bourbon distillery has partnered with watchmaker Original Grain to produce a series of timepieces celebrating its heritage and brand. The collection in question has been aptly named The Original Grain x Jack Daniel’s watch collection.

All of the watches come with a very unique twist. Wood from the barrels Jack Daniel’s uses to mature its famous spirit is used in their manufacture. Alongside the bourbon-stained American oak, you may also see some charcoal and limestone. The charcoal is a reference to the filtering process Jack Daniel’s goes through during its mellowing phase, and the limestone is a nod toward the Cave Spring Hollow. That’s where the water used to make the whiskey is sourced.

This is how you can get your hands on Australia’s oldest whisky
This whisky was distilled in the 90s.
Sullivans Cove

If you don’t imagine whisky when you think about Australia, you haven’t been paying much attention to the Southern Hemisphere country in the last few decades. Brands like Lark, Archie Rose, Starward, and Sullivans Cove (among countless more) are doing big things in the whisky world. While we could spend a whole article writing about Australian whisky, today we’re most concerned with the latter.

And while we love everything this Tasmania-based, award-winning distillery puts out from its American Oak, French Oak, and Double Cask to its limited-edition releases, today we’re interested in something a little older. That’s because recently the iconic brand released Australia’s oldest whisky.
