Broken Heel Gin


Paying homage to the iconic Australian cult movie and stage show ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ Broken Hill comes to life in spectacular fashion on September 7th, 8th & 9th as The Palace Hotel hosts their 4th annual Broken Heel Festival.

Never ones to shy away from a party or an opportunity to support fellow regional towns, Mildura’s own Fossey’s Gin have jumped on the Silver Stiletto of Sisterhood and fully embraced the ever evolving and growing festival by creating a specialty Gin just for this event!
Fossey’s Broken Heel Gin has exceeded even the Distillers expectations during the trial period and is shaping up to be a best seller.

Fossey’s Broken Heel Gin showcases a magnificent strawberry flavour, of which is surpassed only by the spectacular shimmery pink colour.

“The Broken Heel festival is thrilled to be partnering with our neighbours at Fosseys Gin to showcase this fantastic regional offering with this bucket list regional event !

Bringing in local graphic designer Kylie Norton Design to embrace and combine the themes of both Fossey’s Gin and The Broken Heel Festival, the collaboration has been a first for all parties but certainly not a last.

“We love working with the folks of Broken Hill,” says Cherie Gowers, Fossey’s Gin Manager. “With a dramatic increase in visitors to our Ginporium who have either come in from the recommendation of our Broken Hill partners or who are on their way to this iconic location, we are absolutely thrilled to be working in collaboration to bring to fruition something that’s just a little bit spectacular that both towns can claim as their own!”

And from the Mayor of Broken Hill herself, Mayor Darriea Turley
“It’s great to see a renowned business from our Victorian neighbour throwing their support behind this wonderful event. This is a great promotion for Broken Heel, and reflects just how quickly the event is growing in stature across the country.”

The Broken Heel Festival have extended their laneway hours this year to include the Sunday evening and attracts a crowd of 1000-1500 through the gates each night with a large contingent travelling from Sydney and our very own Mildura.
Fossey’s Broken Heel Gin will be officially launched in Broken Hill on Friday September 7th.
