Our first creation is also the first product of its kind in Australia – the Kakadu Plum Wine. 

We sourced our Kakadu Plums through The Australian Superfood Co. who supplied them in partnership with Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation. PWAC is a Women’s Centre in the Wadeye Community, located just outside of Darwin, Northern Territory. Together, PWAC and TASC are working to reverse the ongoing pattern of poverty, poor health and oppression in Indigenous communities.

Wadeye has an employment rate of only 4%. PWAC and TASC formed an initiative where Indigenous women are paid fair wages for collecting and harvesting Kakadu Plums used in TASC’s products. Since forming this initiative, over 300 community members now have seasonal employment. A condition of employment through the program is that their children must be enrolled in school. 

To make our Kakadu Plum Wine, the plums go through a steeping method similar to that of Ume plums in the production of Umeshu. For this 170 bottle batch, production lasted 18 months with plums going through a process of pre-soaking and then two extended periods of soaking in small format glass barrels before being removed from the solution. The liqueur was then left to mature, resulting in a distinctive, complex Kakadu Plum wine, the first of its kind in Australia. 

This limited edition release is 1 of 170, labelled with a painting specially made for this project by Loretta Egan.

The profits of this project go directly to our endorsed organisations. - Forward Drinking
