Business Spotlight: Dutch Courage

Dutch Courage Gin

With over 100 different gins on offer, Dutch Courage is two spacious floors of pure ginspiration. Taking its cues from old-timey British colonial outposts, you can expect vintage furniture, dashing staff, and just a hint of the great wide wilderness creeping in to the tasteful décor.

We spoke with managing director of Dutch Courage, Matthew Hilan to discover their local story:
