Australian gin distiller launches macadamia nut liqueur in UK

Cape Byron Distillery, the maker of Brookie’s Byron Gin, has release a premium roasted macadamia nut liqueur. 

Mac, described as “a versatile little nutter” is made from locally sourced roasted macadamia nuts and toasted native Australian wattle seed. 

The liqueur is created by steeping roasted macadamia nuts, macadamia nut shell and wattle seed in a wheat-based neutral spirit, before adding pure spring water from Mount Warning and a touch of natural sugar cane spirit. 

Mac can be served on ice with a squeeze of lime (Easy Mac) or stirred with whisky and bitters over ice as an Old Fashioned, or even mixed as an affrogato with ice-cream and coffee. The liqueur is described as having decadent flavours of butterscotch, cocoa and coffee. 

Co-founder Eddie Brook, said: “We are absolutely stoked to release our latest creation, celebrating the native Australian macadamia nut that the Northern Rivers, NSW region is so world-renowned for. We have combined and balanced roasted macadamia with the wonderful native wattle seed into a modern and decadent liqueur. Rich, golden and 100% natural, Mac, has a long-lasting and moreish finish.”

Cape Byron Distillery is set in the heart of the Brook family’s macadamia farm, surrounded by sub-tropical rainforest, a re-generation project the Brook family has passionately established for over thirty years. 

Mac by Brookie’s is exclusively distributed through the UK by SEA Spirits and is available to buy from Master of Malt and The Good Spirits Co for £35.95 for 70cl.
