Forward Drinking Kakadu Plum Wine

Forward Drinking Kakadu Plum Wine

Regular price $130

700ml // ABV 28.4%

Our first creation is an Umeshu style liqueur featuring native Australian Kakadu Plums. 

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, the plums go through a steeping method similar to that of Ume plums in the production of Umeshu. For this 274 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. A further period of maturation results in a distinctive, complex native Australian Kakadu Plum liqueur. 

This limited edition release is 1 of 274, labelled with an artwork by Hannah Lange. - Forward Drinking
