Animus Distillery

Animus Distillery was founded in 2015, by four friends with a shared passion for producing world-class spirits. Initially starting in Fitzroy North they quickly outgrew this space and expanded to a larger rural property in Central Victoria. Capturing the soul of the freshest botanicals for their gin is central to their production philosophy. With the highest grade of 100% Australian grain spirit and triple filtering using a custom gravity-fed carbon filter system this provides the cleanest base for distillation. With many of the botanicals grown on our property they use a 100% vapour pressed production approach with a custom-made 50L copper column still. The gins are produced in small batches, where their botanical baskets are changed after every few litres, to extract the freshest, richest flavours of Australian native and international ingredients. Whilst labour intensive, this approach allows them to continually balance their artisan gins with the sensibility of a fine chef. The gins are tasted throughout the production process to ensure each batch displays exquisite balance and intensity. They are released at 50% alcohol, to best express the richness and complexity of the ingredients. Sustainability is a core part of their business philosophy. All of the used botanicals are reutilised to provide fertilizer for growing the next generation of botanicals. Pure filtered rainwater from our estate is used to make the gins and all packaging is made from recycled and sustainable sources. “Our business ethos is to minimise our footprint through cascading resource utilisation. We aim to constantly improve the efficiency of our energy utilisation, wherever possible upgrading our energy infrastructure to renewable sources.
