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.

Very good class to learn all about the history of distilling in Australia, and tapping into the basics of developing the gin flavour profile. Armed with the new found knowledge, it made for a greater appreciation of the tasting set at the end of class. Hats off to Seb and his team.
