A realisation of years and years of chatting around dinner tables, bars, campfires and phone calls. Welcome to the world JAM Distilling.
We officially established JAM distilling, errr, ummmm, years ago? Recently? Today? We’re not exactly sure when it officially “started” but we can say, it’s here now and it has been an amazing journey up to this point.
What is JAM Distilling?
Well it isn’t the distillation of crushed fruit that has been cooked with sugar until soft and the water evaporated until it thickens to a spreadable consistency and preserved in jars for the winter. That would be jam distilling, we’re talking about JAM Distilling.
More than anything, JAM Distilling is a result of long term friendship between 2 special families: Johnson And Mellors.
A long term friendship between a FIFO worker and an Australian Navy sailor and their wives (and kids) have seen incredible career travel all around Australia and overseas. When the stars have aligned and the JAMily has found themselves all in one place at the same time there has consistently been one conversation that always comes up “we should start a distillery…”
At the heart of JAM Distilling is the idea to create premium craft spirits that captures the energy of connection and good times with family and friends, especially the moments of re-connecting after time spent away.
We aim to produce small-batch craft spirits that will proudly sit in the “share cupboard” in homes, just waiting to be brought out for a special occasion and be shared with good company.
It’s an exciting time at JAM HQ right now, we’ve just had our liquor licence approved and the dream is becoming a reality as we fine tune recipes and get ready for the first batch.
Over the coming weeks we’ll introduce all the members of this special JAMily. The Distilling boys, the JAM wives and the JAM kids.
