Our Story

The secret to The West Winds story is buried within our name. The wind and the waves are at the heart of everything we do, because we honour the ocean breezes that brought sailors and explorers across the Indian Ocean to the West Coast of Australia.

Our journey set sail in 2010, when we threw caution to the winds and embarked to create a range of gins to rival the best in the world. Our first gins, The Cutlass and The Sabre and more recently, The Broadside, have all been awarded Australia’s Champion Gin while the Cutlass and The Broadside have also been proclaimed Champion Gin in international competitions.

West Winds also releases limited edition products. Sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to know when we launch our next limited release gin.

Our Gin

Our goal is to make gins that we love to drink and to share them with the world. Our gins are acclaimed both in Australia and internationally.

We are passionate about gin and about exploring the best ways to make our gins as accessible as possible. Over 50% of the botanicals used in The West Winds Gins are indigenous to Australia. Combine these with more traditional botanicals and ingredients, like locally grown fresh lemon, lime and fresh coriander, and you have gins that are among the finest in the world.

The
Cutlass

The Cutlass is a beautifully aromatic gin with a unique Australian character. It combines traditional juniper alongside some uniquely Australian elements like cinnamon myrtle and Australian bush tomato. Handcrafted small batch is the key to its delicacy. The introduction of Australian bush tomato pairs up with an increase in coriander seed to produce a headstrong but beautifully aromatic gin. Garnish with a sliver of green capsicum or cherry tomato.

Boldest

The
Broadside

The boldest of the West Winds fleet, The Broadside is a Navy Strength (58%) gin, made to honour the most brazen, aggressive and fearless of naval war tactics where warships released a close-range barrage of firepower from every gun along one side of the hull. This Navy Strength gin is as bold as this manoeuvre.

Its intensity of flavour comes from the delicious Sea Parsley seasoned with Margaret River sea salt. The Broadside Gin was likely the first spirit in the world to incorporate filtered seawater. The Broadside’s higher alcohol percentage amplifies the aroma.

The
Sabre

The West Winds Sabre is a uniquely Australian take on a traditional London Dry style gin.  The flavours in this bright, aromatic gin are led by an undercurrent of citrus with a dominance of juniper, followed by the classic coriander seed. The addition of wattle seed adds a depth to the mid palate and introduces a creamy texture to the gin. Perfect as a classic G&T with lemon to release the intricacies of this uniquely styled gin.
