Each year Wilma would make Christmas puddings on Victoria Derby Day while the rest of the family watched the races. So a couple of years ago, on Derby Day, Cam put some puds made to her recipe in the botanical basket of Wilma (our still) and distilled a gin. He was also working on a gin aged in our collection of 80-year-old muscat barrels.
So he decided to blend these together and add a tweak of Classic Rutherglen Muscat. The result smells like gin and tastes like Christmas.
Lucy was born in Melbourne but now lives and works in Berlin, sharing her uniquely modern Australian creativity with the world. Lucy turns found objects into handmade collages full of nostalgia, whimsy and detail. In this artwork, Lucy reimagines the warmth, closeness and togetherness of a traditional Christmas Day and places it in a surreal Australian landscape with Wilma’s pudding at the centre, enough for all of us to share. Because across the years and around the world, Christmas Day is always a special time to share with our closest family and friends.
