Team Unico crafts drinks. They love doing it in the most sustainable and non-impactful way possible. Team Unico is the realisation of Australian Culture, with all of our products honouring the uniqueness and fragility of our land - whether that’s utilising grape varieties that can be dry-grown in desert-like environments or playing around with native Australian botanicals in Gin and Amaro. In 2013, they began making Unico Zelo Wines in the Old Gumeracha Coldstores and launched Applewood Distillery Gin soon after in 2015. Team Unico gradually renovated the coldstores and in mid-2017, opened the Applewood Distillery Bar. They have since created Harvest Social Cantina, Carter’s Coffee Liqueur and Økar Island Bitter. They hope to assist a disconnected world to reestablish a curiosity and adoration for the land we all collectively belong to, via the sharing of drinks crafted of the land with food, family and friends - building a global community in the process.
