Underground Spirits is the true essence of what it means to be made in Canberra. This premium spirits brand is made BY Canberrans, with brother and sister team, Dr Toby Angstmann and Claudia Roughley, at the helm as head distillers and owners.
The distillery was established in 2017 in Canberra's southside suburb of Kambah to create a range of premium gins and vodkas just perfect for the discerning drinker.
Underground Spirits is made FROM Canberra with the makers sourcing local, high quality ingredients and pure spring water from the Snowy Mountains, and it's this along with Dr Angstmann's unique cryofiltration process which makes some of the world's best vodkas and gins.
The latest addition to the Underground line-up, the new Ad Crescendum Native Gin, is perhaps the best example of the team using a little piece of Canberra in their creations.
With ingredients foraged from the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the collaboration is a tactile and engaging gin with hints on the nose of the Australian backyard. It truly is a taste of Canberra.
Underground Spirits is made FOR Canberrans. The current line-up has been made with the Canberra climate in mind.
As the weather has cooled, now is a lovely time to enjoy their deliciously rich Caramel Vodka - warm and sticky sweet with a creamy and buttery mouthfeel - it's lovely on its own or with cloudy apple juice and a cinnamon stick to be enjoyed by the fire.
The Signature Vodka on the other hand, is pure and clean, with a delectable creaminess and beautiful grainy finish. Lovers of gin will be delighted with the all-round crowd-pleasing Signature Gin - with soft citrus and spicy tones - or the more complex Shiraz Gin with Tasmanian pepperberries. With a warm and delectable finish just lovely for the cooler weather, this offering has notes of vanilla, toast and cedar, as well as the fruity and juicy characters of the wine arising from the wine barrels sourced directly from Canberra Region winemakers.
The Underground Spirits range can be ordered online at undergroundspirits.com.au and is available at select Canberra beverage retailers.
