About Heathcote Gin:

As primary producers, we are committed to adopting an ethical and sustainable approach to farming and agriculture, striving to protect and respect the land we use, and ensure that a more sustainable future in farming is possible for the generations that may follow in our footsteps. Making gin represents an opportunity to develop a signature style and flavour. In the case of Heathcote Gin, it provides an intricate, yet sophisticated platform to showcase the beauty of a local region. Simply put, making gin using the landscape of our region as the palate is not only exciting but also niched.

Nowhere in the world can a spirit be created quite like our Heathcote Gin.

About Portia Bodycoat from Verve Cartel:

Once, there was a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful town called The Indigo Room. This is where the magic started for me in Geraldton. Since then I’ve met the most darling man & have given life to two incredible daughters. Over the following years, I have spent time dreaming of my next “something”, my next daring adventure.

And now…Verve Cartel.

Verve Cartel is about celebrating life & living for the moment. It’s about cooking for my family & friends, old & new, sharing beautiful homewares, making people feel welcome and enjoying exquisite food. This exciting business is the culmination of all those things that make me smile & bring me joy. It’s everything about heart…and food. Always food. Be flamboyant, snort laugh & laugh loud.
