Slinging small batch craft gin.

Puss & mew is a boutique gin distillery, slinging small batch craft gin in Melbourne’s East.

Whether it’s served straight, over ice, with your preferred mixer, or in a cocktail, every drop is distilled using an optimal combination of steeping, vapour infusion and compounding to create a balanced and complex spirit.

Wondering where the name of our gin came from? It’s inspired by the story of an enterprising gin-slinger who created the world’s first vending machine to evade liquor licensing rules in the 18th Century. Some call him a crook. We call him a genius.

Award-winning Gins! 

Yes! We can now say we are the home of four award-winning Gins and are very proud of our achievements over the past few months.  For all the judges tasting notes, feedback and a list of which flavours received an award visit our new news section where we share all the inside information. It is very much worth a read for any fellow Gin enthusiast. 

In case you missed it, we also launched a new flavour – Australian Dry!  This new Gin has a range of exciting botanicals and those that have tried it already are saying it is fast becoming a firm favourite. 

Live music has also arrived at Puss & Mew in July & August for some chilled Sunday tunes. Keep up-to-date on the details by following us on our social pages. 

We have had some special menu’s introduced that are proving to be popular, with Christmas in July and our Sunday Indulgence menu creating a stir, of course, all your regular favourites are always on the menu so make a booking or pop-in to enjoy your favourites and take a peek at our gorgeous new outdoor area, another new addition at P&M; yes we have been busy! 

Hope to see you soon, Deb & Brett.


Gin tasting is hard work, but someone has to do it.
