Dasher + Fisher
Talk & Taste is a monthly series of intimate and informative sessions where guests embark on a journey of discovery with Australia’s best distillers and winemakers. Get to know the product and the craftsmanship first-hand throughout a fun and interactive 90 minute session of sampling and tasting. The beverage menu is matched with mini bites from the Pilgrim kitchen, carefully developed by Head Chef Mike Richards who uses only locally and ethically sourced produce.
Talk & Taste is hosted in Pilgrim’s new and unique events space, The Vaults – where the history of the old Princes Walk Vaults is brought to life in Melbourne’s drinking and dining scene.
Dasher + Fisher are two wild rivers that run from the snowmelt mountains, through the rich hinterland, to the pristine coast of Tasmania’s north-west. From this pure water Dasher + Fisher copper pot distil botanicals sourced from the many growers who live there. Their award winning gins are based on the landscape and the ingredients that are found in the area: Mountain, Meadow and Ocean. All three include the ‘Tassie Trio’ of ingredients- native pepperberry, lavender and wakame. They are dialled up and down, and combined with various botanicals to create different layers of taste for each variant. Dasher + Fisher gins are uniquely Tasmanian, wild+pure.
