CHE Proximity has decoded the Australian spirit and put it in a bottle – literally.

The agency partnered with craft distillery Four Pillars to create the world’s first run of data-inspired gin, based on cultural trends, social attitudes and the genetic make-up of the country.

Data-Distilled Gin was commissioned to celebrate the agency’s 5th birthday, with a bottle gifted to each of CHE Proximity’s clients and its team of 305 specialists across CHEP’s Sydney and Melbourne campuses.

A spectrum of data sources revealing Australian’s ancestral identification, travel habits, wellness goals and food preferences,were applied to inspire the gin’s distillation process.

“For the last five years we’ve used data to better understand customers, and with this insight, create experiences that are personal, scalable and unmissable,” says Chris Howatson, CEO of CHE Proximity.

“Our data-distilled gin is simply a fun way to mark five years of hard work and recognise our clients for their partnership and loyalty”.

The data revealed more than a third (36.1 per cent) of Australians claim a British heritage, inspiring the gin’s juniper berry base and cardamom undertones – a reference to the British migration through the spice routes and East Indies.

An infusion of the traditional Indonesian spice, cubeb, marked the steady 8.5 per cent rise in the popularity of Indonesian escapes over the last decade.

The inclusion of superfoods – including turmeric, orris root and macadamia nuts – reference the 82 per cent of the population who regularly spend money on improving their health and wellbeing.

With Chinese food topping the nation’s preferred cuisine list for the fourth year running, Cameron Mackenzie, Four Pillars’ Founder and Distiller, added touches of ginger, coriander seeds, Szechuan pepper and a shot of lemon to finish ‘the nation’s gin’.

“As a distillery, we have an appetite for the experimental,” says Mackenzie. “The CHE Proximity and Four Pillars partnership was an opportunity to work with one of the world’s great data-driven agencies whose growth trajectory, like our own, has been born out of restless innovation.

“This project has drawn on each company’s respective crafts to create the true spirit of Australia, one which is imbued with its residents’ unique and inimitable character.”
