We’re all about the gin at Polka Dot Bride and when the crew at award-winning gin maker Craft & Co sent along one of their favourite recipes ‘The Craft & Co Fizz’ (along with a bottle of said gin!), we couldn’t help but whip it up for this week’s Cocktail Friday!
Craft & Co is Melbourne’s first city distillery – their Collingwood Dry picked up a silver medal at the Australian Distilled Spirit Awards – distilling their gin and other spirits including grappa and limoncello on site in Collingwood. For those that want to get creative, Craft & Co will work with you to create your very own gin flavour (keep it for yourself for an anniversary toast or serve it at your reception). They’ll even decant your special gin into individual favour-sized bottles with a custom label for your bonbonniere, making for a very merry wedding, see our photo below!
Not only does Craft & Co whip up amazing spirits, this brewery, winery, cellar door and classroom hybrid also loves to host a good wedding! (You can see one we have featured here!). The Makers Hall, our favourite space of the four on offer, is able to accommodate 200 guests for a cocktail wedding or 140 for a sit-down celebration in a stunning, industrial style setting. Just the spot for urban lovers who adore good food and gin!
So we’re toasting in celebration of all things crafty as we share The Craft & Co Fizz with you!
