DRINKS

Cocktails

Paloma
Tall, bright and fresh. Arette Blanco Tequila is served in a tall salt frosted glass of Jarritos grapefruit soda and lime.
17

Espression Martini
Like all other coffee cocktails to look at, but there’s something special under the hood. Kahlua and Vodka are injected with a little Campari and fueled by our own Fairmont Cold Brew.
18

Red Snapper
A refreshing riff on the Bloody Mary. This rejuvenating drink is made on Four Pillars Gin with subtle hits of Sriracha, soy sauce and a lemon thyme salt. Garnished with beef jerky and grilled haloumi.
17

Sailor’s Ration
A classic rum punch with a little Ship Inn flair. Flor de Cana White & Gold are shaken with our own juicy blend of pineapple, orange and lime, with a dash of house grenadine. The perfect way to spend your pay.

Ship Inn Ol’ Fashion
Sitting in an old Imperial Stout barrel, waiting to be tapped into your glass is Monkey Shoulder scotch. Something about old dogs and new tricks…

A little trick we learned from a salty old dog. Sweet tea topped with a spirit of your choice is sure to please any punter.
10

Classic Negroni
Not everything needs to be re-imagined or tweaked. Here we tip our hat to the staple of any bar experience. Equal parts Four Pillars gin, Campari and Dolin sweet vermouth are stirred down and served the way it always has been.

Wine

Das Juice
‘White’ Sauv Blanc. Adelaide Hills
9/42
Lemon zest and white flower aromas. The palate is zesty and fresh with lovely round acidity. Completely gluggable. Minimal intervention with the use of certified biodynamic and organic grapes.

Glandore
‘Elliot’ Semillon. Hunter Valley
10/46
Aromas of lemon pith & curd are highlighted by hints of tropical pineapple. The generous palate gives a sherbet texture with a long length of flavour & a grapefruit like finish.

Tyrell’s
Chardonnay. Hunter Valley
9/42
Textbook modern, medium bodied Hunter Valley Chardonnay that suites a variety of cuisines. Citrus, white stone fruit, some oak spice on the nose with a soft acidic finish.

Alpha Box & Dice
‘Tarot’ Prosecco. Murray Darling
10/49
Dry styled prosecco, apple blossoms, lychees with a hint of honey on the nose that works with a zippy & fresh mouthfeel.

The Ship Inn
Pet Nat Rosé
9/42
Pétillant-naturel. We love it so much we’ve got our own.

Borachio
‘Summer Nat’ Pet Nat. Adelaide Hills
49
Hard to believe, but this is cabernet sauvignon. A gloriously refreshing pet nat made solely from juice, no skins needed.

Konpira Maru
‘Tender Cat 2.0’ Pet Nat. King Valley
45
A little wild & without pretension, a whiff of spritz, super fresh, and super drinkable. Solidsy, epic raspberry, soft and mellow.

Margan
Rosé. Hunter Valley
9/42
A blend of Merlot and Barbera picked and pressed off skins immediately to encourage floral aromatics and elegant fruits reminiscent of roses and bramble. Dry wine packed with mouthfeel and fresh fruit.

Toppers Mountain
‘Red Submarine’ Tempranillo/Tannat. New England
10/45
This curious field blend of Tempranillo and Tannat is immediately inviting with pure juicy mixture of dark cherries, blueberries, plums and blossoming blackberry

Krinklewood
‘Wild Red’ Shiraz. McLaren Vale
9/40
Vibrant garnet red in colour, displaying enticing aromas of fresh cherries & plums with violets & a light earthy spice. The medium bodied palate is elegant & well balanced.

Payten & Jones
‘Pinot Noir’. Yarra Valley
10/45
Not too heavy, not too dark. Mixed berries with hints of cherry with savoury almost forest floor undercurrents. Silky smooth with plenty too love.

Bobar
Syrah. Yarra Valley
55
A super-light, crunchy version of Syrah bordering on rose in terms of body & colour. Light & breezy as a red wine gets. No Sulphates, Served chilled.
