The Assyrian Rhubarb Gin

Waverley Distillery brand originates from the property “Waverley” which was purchased in 1878 by the impending Premier of Tasmania Sir J.W. Agnew for his son Mr C.S. Agnew who started a horse stud as part of the properties operations.  The horse stud was very successful with a particular horse The Assyrian, purchased after winning the Melbourne Cup in 1882. The Assyrian is buried today on the property at “Waverley” in the paddock where the Rhubarb for the Waverley Gin is grown.  The grave stone is erected in the paddock and reflects the rich history of the Agnew family, now instilled into the robust flavours of our Rhubarb Gin.  The black with white dots are the distinctive racing colours of Waverley.  C.S Agnew’s Great, Great Grandson Michael Agnew and his Wife Fiona are the founders of the Waverley Distillery.
