We are Bec and Craig, the husband and wife duo behind multi award-winning Ginny Pig Distillery.
Two former nurses who swapped scrubs for stills! Today, instead of bandages, we obsess over botanicals! Where did our distilling story begin? As a fanciful dream to infuse the iconic spicy notes of a hot cross bun into Bec’s favourite beverage – gin. So in between shiftwork and (very little) sleep – all from the ‘cosy comfort’ of our suburban garage – we embarked on a self-taught journey to do just that. When the result was a hit amongst family and friends, we knew we’d struck gold. Our famous Hot Cross Bun gin was born. From here, our path was clear, and every spare moment was devoted to perfecting our new-found passion.
We couldn’t have been prouder when our flagship Botanical Gin took out the ‘Best in Class Overall Gin’ title at the prestigious 2023 San Francisco World Spirit Awards. Persistence and patience certainly pays off. Even with this accolade tucked away in the pool room, we won’t be slowing down. Innovation and experimentation is what drives us.
