2020 Cape Byron Distillery can add ‘World’s Best Nut Liqueur’ to its list of awards after Mac. by Brookie’s was awarded the top position at the 2020 World Liqueur Awards.
Launched at the end of January 2019, the liqueur combines the richness of roasted macadamia nuts with the coffee, cacao and hazelnut flavours from toasted Australian wattleseed. It is a buttery smooth versatile liqueur with just the right balance of sweetness.
Staying true to the distillery’s environmental ethos, it is made up of 100 per cent locally sourced ingredients. The macadamia nuts themselves are procured from the Northern Rivers region, which includes the Brook family farm, home to Cape Byron Distillery.
“It was a humbling experience waking up to the news that Mac. had taken home the gong for not just best in Australia, but the world,” said Eddie Brook, co-founder of Cape Byron Distillery. “We are blessed with an abundance of incredible native Australian produce in the Northern Rivers and we get excited about showcasing these flavours in spirits that consumers have never tried. So, we are stoked to see that people around the world are excited about our products too.”
