The distillery at The Murray Hotel officially opened on 24th August 2017, 10 years to the day of the opening of The Murray Hotel. It’s very exciting for us to be distilling and to be part of the spirit evolution & revolution currently occurring in Australian & the world.
Sin Gin Distillery won 1 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze medals in the 2018 Australian Distilled Spirit Awards. An amazing achievement for this startup nano distillery.
We are proud to present the Seven Deadly Sins range of Australian Dry Gins which have been handcrafted by Mark Harris in West Perth, Western Australia and are a unique blend of local and exotic botanicals to delight the taste buds; one sin for everyone. Mark was an air-traffic controller for 30 years in Karratha, Melbourne, Bankstown, Jandakot and Perth. Mark had a change of careers after marrying a hotelier to become a distiller. Currently Mark does all the hotel maintenance but is hoping to give that up shortly to concentrate on distilling full-time. Mark really doesn’t like painting and there’s a lot of painting to do regularly in a hotel!
Mark has also created a delightful Australian Aquavit from his great-grandfather Oscar Olsen’s family recipe brought to Australia in the 1910.
Sin Gin is a nano (this means really really small) distillery in West Perth, Western Australia. Mark Harris, former air-traffic controller now distiller, is creating stunning spirits full of local and international botanicals.
Sin Gin is named after Kate Sinfield who brought ideas of gin with her from England to Australia in the 1980s when she arrived as a backpacker. Mark and Kate are working closely with products from the local Western Australian environment to handcraft a unique, tasty and fun gin.
