Archie Rose and Gelato Messina have come together to celebrate a shared love of exceptional, farm-grown produce and flavour with the creation of a limited edition Neapolitan 200ml three-spirit set.

Conceived as a collaborative twist on the all-time classic Neapolitan strawberry, vanilla and chocolate ice cream combination, this three-spirit set showcases some of the outstanding produce grown at two of Messina’s own farms in Australia and by other producers. Each ingredient has then been individually distilled to create three-spirits ready for cocktail invention.

Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin is a lively gin, featuring individually distilled botanicals, including Albion strawberries from Messina’s farm in Dural, NSW, locally foraged pink peppercorns and native river mint.

Tasting Notes


An array of fruit with wonderfully ripe strawberries, fresh watermelon and sweet pineapple followed with a distant herbal character with pine needles and fresh dewy grass.


Upfront sweetness from the strawberries resolving into watermelon and mint.


A wave of woody spice counteracts with ripe fruit and lingering dry juniper.

Production Notes

Botanicals Sourced

A gin is only as good as its ingredients. By working closely with providores and embracing experimental techniques, an emphasis could be placed on local ingredients which speak of their uniquely Australian provenance.
