Grasslands Gin by White Possum
$49 / 40% ABV / 375mL
In-stock and available now.
With a focus on creating a fine partner to tonic water and sweet vermouth, we made Grasslands Gin - an experimental gin with a floral citrus accent, distilled on the vast expanses of the NSW Highlands.
Grasslands Gin is made from a hand-picked selection of locally grown botanicals on-site at the distillery, as well as more exotic ingredients which come from afar. Sweet dried oranges and zest of fresh lemons and limes feature prominently in the botanical basket of this citrus love affair.
Alpine Vodka by White Possum
$39 / 40% ABV / 375mL
In-stock and available now.
This is the first release of our Alpine Vodka, designed and distilled in the Snowy Mountains. From the outset, we strived to craft a local vodka which would be versatile and fun - a vodka designed with the passionate cocktail craftsperson in mind.
White Possum Alpine Vodka is triple distilled on a five plate column still, followed by a carbon filtration process to ensure it is squeaky clean, before being cut with fresh alpine water. A smooth drop which can be savoured neat or used as a backbone for any number of cocktails.
Dark Coffee Liqueur by White Possum
$52 / 32% ABV / 375mL
In-stock and available now.
With our heart and home in Melbourne, it was only a matter of time before we figured a way to bring a love of coffee and spirits in sync.
Our Dark Coffee Liqueur is designed to satisfy a coffee craving and deliver a warming punch to keep things interesting. It’s made with generously applied freshly roasted coffee beans on a smooth grain based vodka, carefully moderated with a touch of thick maple syrup to round-out the bitterness.
Made with 100% Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.

Who, what, where?!
We are a small business based in Melbourne. We love spirits. After stumbling across some of our local distilleries, it was clear that (1) they make top quality products, (2) not enough people know about them, and (3) they've got a real story to tell. White Possum was founded in September 2014 to bring local craft spirits to everyone.
What does White Possum mean?
For most of us in Australia, possums are ubiquitous. In fact, head to your local park and you'll probably see dozens of them scampering around. But white (albino) possums are incredibly rare - not unlike the craft spirits we represent.
So for us, the rare white possum symbolises what our spirits are - distinctly Australian and incredibly rare.
