Fun fact from the Weekend Australian 27/2/2021:

Road Test: Summer Land Camel Milk & Honey Vodka


What is it? A tipple fit for Cleopatra: it’s a vodka made with camel’s milk and honey!

Camel’s milk? Yup. Specifically, from a dromedary named Yolanda, grande dame of the Summer Land camel farm in Queensland’s Scenic Rim. The honey’s from bees that feed on local flowering blue gums.

Full marks for provenance, then. And for resourcefulness, too. Summer Land turns the milk from its herd into skincare products, and everything from cheese to gelato and “camelccinos” at the farm gate. Now, this “world first” triple-distilled small batch (300 bottles) vodka, too.

Is it nice? It’s a cracker: smooth and characterful, with caramel and floral notes on the nose that carry through on the palate. It would be a shame to mix something so unique, and so expensive; better to drink it neat with a little ice. Only question is, one hump or two? Boom boom, etc.

$179 (500ml), summerlandcamels.com.au
