Cape Byron Distillery, the makers of Brookie’s Byron Gin, has released its latest creation Mac. By Brookie’s, a premium roasted macadamia nut liqueur.
A versatile little nutter made from locally sourced roasted macadamia nuts and toasted native Australian wattleseed.
Masterfully created by steeping roasted macadamia nuts, macadamia nut shell, and wattleseed in a wheat based neutral spirit, before adding pure spring water from Wollumbin (Mt Warning) and a touch natural sugar cane syrup. The end result is the “Mac Daddy” of all liqueurs, expect decadent flavours of butterscotch, cacao and coffee.
“We are absolutely stoked to release our latest creation, celebrating the native Australian macadamia nut that the Northern Rivers, NSW region is so world renowned for,” commented Eddie Brook, co-founder of Cape Byron Distillery.
“We have combined and balanced roasted macadamia with the wonderful native wattleseed into a modern and decadent liqueur. Rich, golden and 100% natural, Mac. has a long-lasting and moreish finish.”
Mac. can be served on ice with a squeeze of lime, “Easy Mac”, or try it stirred down with whisky and bitters over ice as an Old-Fashioned, or even mixed through an affogato with your favourite ice-cream and coffee.
Mac. by Brookie’s is currently available at the distillery cellar door, online through capebyrondistillery.com, in premium bars, restaurants and premium independent retail outlets throughout Australia.
Cape Byron distillery is set in the heart of the Brook family’s macadamia farm, surrounded by sub-tropical rainforest, a re-generation project the Brook family has passionately established for over 30 years.
