About

The Writer’s Gin is an indulgent sip, featuring Australian peach, native thyme, raspberry and lemon myrtle botanicals, conceived together with Michael Williams, the editor of The Monthly magazine, Evi.O Studio and Booktopia.

The front label features a quote from iconic Australian author Helen Garner that says: “Every page of writing is the result of a thousand tiny decisions and desperate acts of will,” in testament to the agony and ecstasy of writing and to the authors who persist.

You can also purchase The Writer's Gin in a gift set including two new Archie Rose Bookclub books - The Hummingbird Effect, written by the esteemed author Kate Mildenhall and The Fraud written by bestselling author Zadie Smith.
