Hazell & Hazell was founded in 2016 by Mark and Alison Hazell. Their goal was to make a unique small batch gin using botanicals from their homestead in Bardowie, which has a sweeping variety of interesting and flavourful horticulture to choose from due to the nature of the landscape. This has resulted in two batches of gin to be produced, initially branded as Forager then rebranded as Bardowie gin to better express the importance of the location as to the flavour of the gin.
