Magazine Description

In this issue

When I say take over, I mean more like a military invasion, as we infi ltrated the entire premises from the distillery fl oor to the cocktail bar with our cameras, lights and all the paraphernalia that goes on behind the scenes to create a fashion story. Founders David Whittaker and Vanessa Wilton stood by benignly as we blitzkrieged their offi ces with suitcases full of garments and bags of accessories, while our hair and make-up team rolled out their arsenal of heated rollers, brushes and make-up and requisitioned any spare desks as workspace. While head distiller Tim Stones made sure everything was shipshape on the factory fl oor, T2 (Tim Gray) was at the ready mixing cocktails as the story shifted from the workplace to party time. If explanation were needed for why the Manly Spirits team were so happy to help us realise our Spirited Conversation story it would go something like this: David and Vanessa know what it is to dream big. Three years ago, they came up with the notion of starting their own distillery that would blend the carefree beach life and urban sophistication for which Manly is famed with genuinely artisanal methods to capture nature in a bottle. They enlisted the support of chef and forager Elijah Holland to sustainably source local marine botanicals to give their gins, whiskies and vodkas a truly coastal Australian fl avour. And once they had perfected their product, they opened a bar, which you can visit on weekends. So a big shout out to everyone at Manly Spirits. Thanks for making us so welcome and the shoot so easy. Elsewhere in the magazine we’ve lots of fascinating people and places for your reading pleasure, plus our regular features. We look forward to seeing you for the next issue, on sale September 6.
