Launched in November 2017 in Sydney, Goldy is a Gin with a bit of a pedigree.

‘Sydney restaurateur and hotelier Maurice Terzini (Icebergs and The Dolphin) has partnered with fashion designer Justin O’Shea to launch Goldy Gin, a gin that is designed to taste like, well, gin.

It features prominent juniper and citrus and weighs in at 44% ABV, which means it packs some proper gin character. The recipe for Goldy Gin was developed with Tony Conigliaro, the drinks genius behind London bars 69 Colebrooke Row and Bar Termini.

“When Goldy began I went to Maurice and told him about it. He was immediately down with the project. However it wasn’t until we did the tasting that we decided to work on a bigger partnership for Australia. That’s what makes this partnership special. It’s based not only on friendship but quality. For me, having Maurice and his team behind Goldy is the perfect fit. They stand for everything that Goldy represents and this matters most.”’ – Australian Bartender.

At Barossa Distilling HQ, the arrival of Goldy was eagerly anticipated. Tony Conigliaro had a hand in it! That can only mean good things for a drink. Pair that with a Fashion Designer and Sydney bar and restaurant royalty and you would have to think this bottle has massive potential and bar credentials.
