Loch Weaver GinSale!
A fantastic, fresh and bold gin from Victoria's Loch distillery and brewery.
Bottled at 50%, this is the bigger sibling of Loch's exceptional standard gin, offering more potent flavours and texture.
Juniper-driven, this is fresh and pine-y on the nose, with background citrus and a beautifully textured palate.
Although this is extremely versatile, it just makes a cracking gin and tonic which makes that most basic of cocktails hard to go past.$72.00

William Downie No So2 Pinot Noir 2015
Cloudy and textural preservative free wine from cult winemaker Bill Downie. This wine needs a little time, but once it gets going it is well worth the wait.

Co-Conspirators Beancounter Coffee Porter 5%
He's the acrobat of arithmetic, nerdy number cruncher, magician of money making debts disappear, the bad-ass of bean counting. His humour and soul are as dark as this brew. He roasts the tax man as perfectly as Padre roasted these beans. His books are as balanced as the flavours this malt bill and cold drip coffee provides. He'll make you rich like the roasty, chocolate flavours of this porter$6.95
Knee Deep Stoutella 6%
Chocolate Hazelnut Milk Stout! A full-bodied stout brewed with cacao nibs and natural flavor added

Samuel Billaud Petit Chablis 2015
One of the best Petit Chablis we have tried here at the Oak Barrel. Samuel Billaud is considered to be one of the select few outstanding producers in Chablis. Testament to this is Samuel’s ability to bring out the unique characteristics of each of his fantastic terroirs. His wines have a distinctive elegance, balance and complexity that is seldom achieved with such precision.$47.95
