Barossa’s Seppeltsfield Road Distillers are giving you something to sing about with the release of their newest gin – its extra strong and extra loud!

The new gin named ‘Musician’s Cut’ coincides strategically with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s 85th anniversary celebrations, held earlier this month.

A portion of Musician’s Cut Gin proceeds will be going to Adelaide Symphony Orchestra as Seppeltsfield Road Distillers celebrate their third birthday this year. The distillery is showing no signs of slowing down as proprietors, Jon and Nicole Durdin, are relentless in their pursuit of making world-class gin from the heart.

The Musician’s Cut is the first Seppeltsfield Road Distillers gin to undergo the brand label evolution. The iconic mandala by Barossa artist, Janelle Amos, features botanicals in their gins and is a representation of beauty, balance, and honesty. The new label now places Seppeltsfield Road Distillers front and centre, making it easier to spot your favourite gin on the shelf.

With an alcohol of 54.5 per cent, Musician’s Cut is a high alcohol gin traditionally referred to as ‘navy strength’ or ‘distillers cut’. Knowing this, Nicole, Head Distiller, aptly branded the gin ‘Musician’s Cut’ and had settled on this name long before distilling for this gin had begun.

As life-long musicians, Nicole and Jon are passionate about keeping classical music alive and relevant in South Australia.

Before her career as a gin distiller, Nicole worked for many years as a police officer and was introduced to the police fraternity through her love of music. She joined the band of South Australian Police after university where she travelled the globe playing her instrument of choice, the French horn.

Nicole’s passion for playing the French horn has been evident throughout her life and career. Despite preparing to open Seppeltsfield Road Distillers in 2018, she continued to perform with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and a highlight during this year was performing at The Australian Ballet’s presentation of ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ in Adelaide.

“As most people are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has completely disrupted the arts and cultural industries, with the performing arts sector being one of the worst hit by the crisis,” Nicole said.

“We are proud to donate a portion of Musician’s Cut Gin proceeds to Adelaide Symphony Orchestra – we want them to continue entertaining and educating music lovers of all ages.”

“We believe Musician’s Cut is the gin for mixologists and those with a passion for performance. With increased palate intensity, complexity is retained and balanced with lifted, yet refined botanical structure.”

Although inspired by the ‘Dutch courage’ sip needed to calm a performer’s nerves before heading on stage, Musician’s Cut is equally perfect served with a splash of dry tonic and lemon, or used as a base for your favourite gin cocktail.

Seppeltsfield Road Distillers will be pouring the Musician’s Cut Gin at the Twilight Classics Music Festival on December 3, supporting a brand-new ensemble of artists presenting Bach’s Goldberg Variations. A night of thirty movement variations, this will be one to remember which you can book a ticket for here.

Musician’s Cut is available now from Seppeltsfield Road Distillers for $80, and will be available in select cellars throughout South Australia from December.
