Since 1853, the MCG has been a place of connection. A special meeting place where the hallowed turf is more than just a cornerstone – it warrants its very existence.
The catalyst for this unique Mountain Goat x MCG collaboration would come on a quintessential summer afternoon in Melbourne; cricket commentary becoming white noise as MCG Grounds person, Nick, and brother-in-law and Mountain Goat Distiller, Brad, mused – what if we could make a spirit that celebrated the MCG’s hallowed turf.
Inspired by the aromas of expertly mown grass and the native botanicals of surrounding Yarra Park, 1853 is a herbaceous, vibrant and aromatic gin that captures the essence of this special place of connection in every sip.
Like attending events at the People’s Ground, 1853 is best enjoyed when shared with great company.
