Kissing A Stranger

Keen to reduce their waste, Peter Bignell from Belgrove Distillery and the organisers of 2015's Rootstock wine festival in Sydney came up with the idea of distilling the contents of the popular event's many spit buckets - hundreds of litres of expectorated chardonnay and pinot and amber wines and cloudy wines. The result, processed nearby at Poor Toms Distillery last year in 2016, is a fine grappa. Distiller Griffin Blumer from Poor Toms Distillery said "it's like a kiss from a stranger in a nightclub".
