MAKER’S NOTE — ASH TOSH, WINEMAKER & DISTILLER
How can I invent something new?, I asked.
I’m a professional winemaker – with the mind of a scientist and the heart of an artist.
As a renowned wine technologist and beverage consultant, I’ve won over a dozen industry awards and made over 150 million litres of wine & spirits. Although proud of my commercial success, it’s time to break away and follow my heart.
I founded the Australian Liquor Company for the creative freedom to handcraft wines, spirits and liqueurs for all to enjoy. But my innate drive to become the creator I am today began long before this venture.
Growing up in India, I watched on in awe as my father spent his life inventing numerous technologies. His devotion to the magic of creation never left me.
Then on an expedition into the Himalayas, I encountered a Buddhist monk in the monastery of the Dalai Lama. How can I invent something new?, I asked. Only by bringing two things together does something new come to life, he said.
And from there, my resolve to blend the finest ingredients to create something new and delicious was born.
