Australian brandy with Bass & Flinders Distillery: S8E6

Holly Klintworth is head distiller at Bass and Flinders Distillery on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.

The business was founded by Holly’s father Wayne Klintworth in 2009 with a desire to make high quality gins, brandies, and liqueurs.

It’s brandy that you’ll be hearing the most about in this episode, as Holly tells us why her family chose a path that is currently less travelled in Australian distilling.

Brandy has an incredibly rich history in Australia but it has a little bit of an image problem, which funnily enough, is fairly similar to what gin was confronting little more than a decade ago.
