Who is Bad Frankie?

Bad Frankie is named after the infamous Governor of Van Diemen’s Land, John Franklin, who outlawed small pot stills in the early 19th Century. Unfortunately, this law was written into national law when the country was federated.

It wasn’t until 150 years later when the ‘grandfather of Australian spirits’ Bill Lark overturned the law and had started to produce his own whisky. From Bill, the industry has expanded exponentially and continues to do so into a range of Australian spirits, whiskey, gin, vodka, liqueurs and so on.

22 December 2018 • Local Craft Gin Master Class

We undertook the Craft Gin Master Class last week at Bad Frankie. We were warmly welcomed and provided with a great jaffle before the class and then treated to an informative and entertaining class. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the host was outstanding. A great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the two hours and learned quite a lot about gin that was new.

Loved it! Got to learn about the history of distilling in Australia before getting into how gins are made and evolved into New World Gins. Seb was a great teacher who also taught us how to sniff and taste gin like a pro

We received this as a gift and couldn't have been happier with the class. Sebastian was informative and entertaining, a great gin "sherpa" you might say, and the flight of gins we sampled was top-notch. I would highly recommend this class and the venue, Bad Frankie, is well worth a visit(s) for their focus on ANZ and smaller batch spirits, plus the tasty jaffles and fun vibe. This is an absolute gin win.
