Sit back and re­lax this month with a gin in hand. We’ve scoured the city to find the best gin bars in town, so you don’t have to. Whether you are after a clas­sic G&T, or a mod­ern cock­tail, gin’s the word. Bot­toms up! Gin Lane

You’ll find this small bar in trendy Kens­ing­ton Street in Chip­pen­dale. Housed in a beau­ti­ful 18th Cen­tury ter­race house, gin lovers can head here to try over 80 dif­fer­ent gins. Taste their ‘Aussie G&T’, with Archie Rose gin, bush tonic, mint, fresh cit­rus and le­mon myr­tle.

Poor Toms Gin Hall

Lo­cated in the in­dus­trial back streets of the in­ner-west sub­urb of Marrickville, you’ll find Poor Toms Gin Hall. This craft dis­tillery is purely ded­i­cated to mak­ing gin, and their re­cently opened Gin Hall has a cool and ca­sual feel. Perch on a stool along the mar­ble­topped bar and en­joy hand­crafted gins, lim­ited re­lease dis­til­la­tions and a va­ri­ety of gin-based cock­tails, which use sea­sonal pro­duce and in­spired botan­i­cals. 6 Chalder Av­enue, Marrickville. 9557 2282. poor­toms­

Archie Rose

This Syd­ney dis­tillery pro­duces its own range of gin, vodka and whisky, and you can even take a tour (by ap­point­ment) and learn first-hand about mak­ing spir­its. Archie Rose’s Sig­na­ture Dry Gin is a favourite—try it in a ‘Stranger Things’ cock­tail with fresh grape­fruit and le­mon juice, laven­der syrup, topped with soda and served tall. Gin lovers will go to heaven with the ‘Aus­tralian Gin Flight’, of­fer­ing tast­ings of five of Aus­tralia’s best gins. 85 Dun­ning Av­enue, Rose­bery. 8458 2300.
