So if Australian Single Malts and whisk(e)y is your tipple of choice, then swing past my website to see the updated list of distillers with links to their own sites.
As for the picture, this is what happens when afficiandos don’t want to miss a drop from a bottle! 😉🥃 #supportaustraliancraftdistillers #singlemalt #whisky #whiskey #thedarkstuff #craftdistilling #barrelaged #martiniwhisperer #dontwasteadrop

What a doozy of a week this has been for me! So its very welcome to have a quiet quality night in with good tunes, company and something agreeable in a glass. The ADA Conference (expect a write up about that before too long) in Tasmania, the first public steps to create my documentary series about craft distillers and cocktail culture in Australia, Canberra Tourism Awards, my Modernist Martini soirée, plus my day job, and then some..... Along the way I met someone from the team who rebranded Plymouth Gin from this bottle to the current green number. Despite my telling him that nowhere have I met anyone who preferred the latter, they were unpersuaded, being an expert in these things. 😉 Anyways, as ever, thanks for tuning in. 🍸

Well, what a swell party that was! Thanks to everyone who came to my Martini Masterclass and talk on how the Martini saved the world (sort of...).... it’s always a thrill to induct friends into the mysteries of the Martini in fine style.
Thanks too @canberra_modern and @unihouseanu for the opportunity to be part of the festival to celebrate all things Modernism in Canberra. See you next year! 🍸

Raising a glass to a great day. Where’s there’s view like this, a bottle of good Vermouth & excellent Tassie gin & ice you’ll find me rustling up a Martini! 🍸

Having been a little under the weather of late, I thought a decent dose of Juniper & other herbs + Vitamin C might be in order. 😉🍸 #healthylifestyle #drsorders #withatwist #drinkwell #botanicals #drinkresponsibly #freepouring #martini #alchemy #martiniwhisperer #art

Monday with a twist! I like to swirl mine for a bit then discard, so it doesn’t dominate the cocktail.

@andrewbarr Chief Minister of the ACT opening @designcanberrafestival with some very thoughtful words on how design is integral to the city and is another example on how Canberra demonstrates its leadership nationally and internationally. I’m excited about my modest contribution to the program of over 200 events. If you love Modernism then tune into @canberra_modern which is a festival within the program! 🍸 book your spots today for our events!

Some drinks need no introduction, and no cocktail has been more influential than the Martini in modern times.

When the sax player in the Dave Brubeck Quartet, was asked how he developed the sound we think of as 50’s jazz, he explained, "I think I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to sound like a dry martini." #jazz #martini #icon #pauldesmond #brubeck #nointroductionneeded #modernism #cocktails #culture #influencer #martiniwhisperer

I’m thrilled to be hosting an exclusive evening here in Canberra on the 30th November.

I’m partnering with Buvette Bistro and Wine Bar @hotelrealm and their Chef de Cuisine Fabien Wagnon to present a five course degustation dinner complete with matching cocktails created by yours truly.

Naturally the soiree will start with Martini’s on arrival crafted by myself.

I’m excited to showcase just how special the French Gins I’ve chosen for the evening are, and Chef will create dishes inspired by, and including them in some instances!

Places will be limited to 30 guests only, so please book directly at buvette@domahotels.com.au

Tickets are $150.00 per head all inclusive. 🇫🇷🍸✨ #degustation #frenchcuisine #canberra #onenightonly #ginspiration #frenchgin #cocktails #martini #luxury #exclusive #martiniwhisperer

This time last year my wife and I were experiencing Palm Springs culture at its Martini finest at the venerable #melvyns When every second person in the joint is drinking Martinis all night long (Gibson’s no less!!) you know you’re on Martini sacred ground. Forget about giving the bartender instructions about how you want yours, you get yours as they make it: shaken, dry, and too the brim. A supremely memorable night that made you feel like a star in an episode of Mad Men. The staff have been there for decades and I’m sure I shed tears of pure joy. Or that might have been my umpteenth Martin! 😉🍸 #palmsprings #inglewoodinn #martini #heritage #shakennotstirred #gibsonmartini #oldschool #finedining #restaurant #martiniwhisperer

Sometimes you can get adventurous with your Martini garnishes depending on the botanicals in your Gin, or the intensity of your Vodka. As you probably gathered by now, less is more with me, you don’t want the garnish to dominate the cocktail but lend some glamour, aesthetic punctuation and some aromatic and flavour notes to compliment the Martini. In this instance it’s a @belvederevodka bone dry, with some fresh Rosemary from garden for a balmy Spring evening here. 🍸
