Melbourne’s Little Lon Distilling Co has released a limited edition bespoke gin, the Cell Block Tango, inspired by Broadway’s longest running show, Chicago the Musical.

Plotted & crafted in Melbourne's CBD and rested within the notorious confines of the Old Melbourne Gaol, the limited-release gin is a concoction of juniper, cinnamon, citrus, and spices.

The Cell Block Tango gin was created especially to celebrate the arrival of the Chicago the Musical opening in Melbourne.

Bottles of the limited edition gin are available online at Little Lon Distilling Co or at Little Lon itself, in Casselden Place in the city.
