    Company Overview

    Brunswick Aces Distillery produces an award-winning range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic gins, with a dedicated distillery, and Australia’s first non-alcoholic bar in Brunswick, Melbourne, they are at the forefront of the moderation movement.

    In 2017, Brunswick Aces launched as Australia’s first non-alcoholic distillery, before adding botanically paired alcoholic gins a year later, with products now available worldwide, revolutionising how people drink while socialising. 

    It all started when six neighbours found themselves looking for a solution for what to drink together, after some of the group went sober and they could no longer share their Friday G&T. Shortly after, Brunswick Aces, now a leading Australian producer of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic gin, was born.

    Brunswick Aces was one of the world’s first non-alcoholic spirit producers, leading the way as the moderation movement began picking up momentum. With both alcoholic and non-alcoholic gin, made using native Australian botanicals, they are uniquely positioned in the Australian market with their extensive knowledge and experience.

    Sapiir, Brunswick Aces’ proprietary range of non-alcoholic gins, is the jewel in the crown and one of the cornerstones of the business. The brand philosophy is to make everyone feel welcome at all social situations, which is why all three botanical blends are available in 0% and 40%, so the same drinks can be enjoyed by everyone.

    Not content with only making products to be drunk at home, the Brunswick Aces team opened the doors to Australia’s first non-alcoholic distillery, bar, and bottle shop in early 2021, changing the drinking landscape in Australia forever.

    Now, Brunswick Aces is raising capital to execute the second phase of its growth plan - fueling marketing and sales growth in existing markets, solidifying entry into three new key territories, and focusing on product range expansion. For this next phase, Brunswick Aces is forecasting incredibly strong year-on-year growth over the short term.
