Head distiller / Co-founder
Industrial chemist, condom manufacturing expert, corporate expat living the life in Sri Lanka and Malaysia for 7 years, building and selling businesses – I’ve covered a fair amount of ground over the years. You can read about it here. What started out as hobby in another Melbourne COVID lockdown has become a real passion for Amy and I. We are working harder than ever and loving it. It’s a great industry full of characters and laughs.
Hobbies: Playing guitar, scuba diving and going to the gym for a chinway + some exercise
Favorite HM Gin: Woodcutter gin over ice.
Prior to co-founding HM Gin with my dad Gavin, I spent close to ten years working in the finance industry. I loved my career as a digital manager but one night over drinks a friend looked at me and said “Amy, every time you talk about what you’re doing with your dad, you light up”. It was in that moment I realised I needed to quit my job and see what dad and I could really make of it.
Hobbies: Playing cricket, watching bad reality tv and travelling.
Favorite HM Gin: I’m a dry gal so it has to be HM Rare Dry Gin.
Having experience in the hospitality industry, I discovered a real passion for engaging with customers and spirits, especially gin! I was looking to take the next step in my career and that’s when I stumbled upon these amazing guys at HM Gin! I absolutely adore being out and about, engaging with customers and sharing all the exciting things we do here!
Hobbies: Trying out fun cocktail ideas at home, cooking and running.
Favorite HM Gin: The Twist Gin – in a gimlet.
Distillery dog/Chief cuddle officier
Dusty is a big part of our distillery. Always on hand for a cuddle or a impromptu play. If his not helping in the distillery he can be found sleeping in the sun or looking for a ball to play with.
Hobbies: Walks, eating and cuddles.
