ABOUT THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT

The Community Spirit was born through a collaboration between Nip of Courage, Spirits and Cocktails Australia, and a number of Australian Craft Distilleries. The initiative started as a means to assist bushfire affected distilleries following the Australian bushfire crisis of 2019-2020.

The Bushfire Relief Project consisted of two main stages. Firstly, a grant provided by Spirits and Cocktails Australia was used to purchase stock from bushfire affected distilleries at full retail value. By doing this, the project helped these distilleries stay afloat during the time that many of them had to be evacuated and/or close their cellar doors.

 

As the communities begin to rebuild The Community Spirit moved to the second stage of the project - encouraging visitors back into these regions. The Community Spirit road trip covered 10 bushfire affected distilleries over the course of a week. 10 videos were produced through the road trip, highlighting the distillery experience at each location.

The Community Spirit hopes to be able to run more community-minded projects in the future and support the relationships within the Australian spirit industry.
