You mean freedom to inflict your batshit religion on your neighbour as opposed to freedom from your neighbour's religious batshittiness?

It may not have a sting, but the native bee has the home of gin abuzz about a distiller on the New South Wales mid-north coast.

An Australian gin distiller from Allworth, NSW, has topped the silver-medal category at the London Spirits Competition
Kylie Sepos has been distilling her product for less than a year on the family farm under the label The Farmer's Wife
The gin incorporates home-grown botanicals as well as honey from native stingless bees, which give it a unique edge
She may have been distilling gin for less than a year, but Kylie Sepos topped the silver category in the recent London Spirits Competition.

While tradition influences her greatly, with basing her gin on juniper, honey from native bees also plays a part in creating her take on "mother's ruin".

She also uses indigenous botanicals grown at the family farm at Allworth, 60 kilometres north of Newcastle.

"I am a bit of a traditionalist. Gin should predominately be juniper," Ms Sepos explained while standing next to a copper still.

"There's 13 botanicals in our gin and we use a lot of traditional botanicals such as coriander and cardamom. Those form the base for what a traditional gin taste like.

"From there the creative part is taking botanicals, a lot of those being natives which are not necessarily in the traditional gins, [and] using them to create something that is quite unique."
Must try a bottle...

It's a dark movie, made in 1971, based on a novel by Kenneth Cook, which was published in 1961. I just watched it again after DRSB posted a still from it. Australia was indeed a shithole in that time. When we arrived here in 1969, things had changed somewhat, but there were many aspects of the bad old days left.
