Kingston Public is on a mission to become Newtown's best collector of rare and premium spirits. In addition to a growing selection of local and international quality spirits we have been coaxing out the best kept secrets from Australia's boutique distilleries. These whiskeys are top shelf in every sense of the word. Handcrafted, rare examples of Australian ingenuity. Many bottles are from very small runs, handmade, or last of a kind. For those serious spirit connoisseurs who enjoy a touch of water, we now have Tasmania's Cape Grim natural water.
This week we're proud to showcase Belgrove Distillery founded by Peter Bignell, sixth generation Tasmanian farmer. Belgrove Distillery is not only the first rye distillery in Australia but is the only biodiesel powered still in the world. These whiskies are all hand made using an alembic pot still. This type of still is very inefficient at extracting alcohol, but craft distillers exploit that inefficiency to bring exciting flavours along with the alcohol. All their production decisions are based on flavour and nose, not volume. Rye is also a low yielding grain compared to barley, It also yields less alcohol, but it produces a huge amount of flavour.
Chef Janice has teamed up with passionate new owner Gigi to develop an exciting new menu, focussed on great quality produce. We source the highest quality ingredients – such Wrights fine meats, Grain organic bread, and Tasmania's Grandvewe cheese,
