Our spirits are lovingly distilled from dark brown cane sugar, in small batches, using 100% Australian ingredients at our micro distillery in Dongara, Western Australia.
The spirits are distilled twice, before being spiced with 20 ingredients including native Kakadu Plum, Lemon Myrtle, Quandong, Wild Rosella and Wattleseed. These ingredients blend to create a pure palate of flavour and a uniquely Australian taste and a premium quality.
Dongara’s Emergency Services Knock Out Competition was held over the weekend!
The Emergency Services Team usually only meet in critical situations which is why the Knock Out Competition is held, giving the team a chance to get together and mingle in more relaxed conditions. The competition includes the team forming smaller groups of 6 and going head to head in an obstacle course.
Illegal Tender Rum Co donated a bottle as a prize toward the competition at the time of the Dongara Police Gold Day.
