Crafted with native WA botanicals, Bombak distils their gin using the more traditional roots of the ‘one-shot’ method, which many gin purists would argue is the only way to do it. 

Their beautiful Flora Gin will transport you to West Aussie bushlands with an insanely unique scent reminiscent of wet bottlebrush and eucalyptus. It uses native species such as Geraldton Wax, Sweet Peppermint Leaf and Bottlebrush for a herbaceous flavour you can’t get anywhere else. 

Pair It With: Geraldton wax, rosemary and tonic

The Citrus Gin gives subtle, earthy citrus notes with sweet undertone hints that will linger in your mouth well after you’re finished. 

Pair It With: Dehydrated lemon, rosemary and tonic
