At Waverley Distillery we produce the highest quality handcrafted gin from the cleanest Tasmanian products. Our love for the finest & best gin available drives us to produce our small batch Assyrian Rhubarb Gin.
Mr C.S. Agnew started a horse stud as part of the Waverley property operations. The horse stud was very successful with a particular horse The Assyrian, purchased after winning the Melbourne Cup in 1882.
The Assyrian is buried today on the property in the paddock where the Rhubarb for the Waverley Gin is grown. The grave stone is erected in the paddock and reflects the rich history of the Agnew family, now instilled into the robust flavours of our Rhubarb Gin. The black with white dots are the distinctive racing colours of Waverley.
We will have a first batch of this outstanding gin available soon.
