Republic of Fremantle 2023 Winner

They say that you can’t have it all, but Republic of Fremantle begs to differ. This is a place that not only distils its own vodka and gin, but also lays claim to forward-thinking cocktails widely regarded as some of the finest you’ll find this side of the Nullarbor. Then there’s chef Emily Jones in the kitchen, whose thoughtful small plates marry the seasonal and sustainable with exemplary local produce. It all comes together with a rare fusion of style, precision and professionalism that sets a higher standard. Pull up a pew, call for a faultless Dirty Martini and toast to this ambitious, accomplished package.
