We arrived at the new premises, a work in progress, to be greeted enthusiastically by George, gin creator extraordinaire! I have never met anyone more passionate about the aromatics and botanical influences that can be infused into a gin. We were extremely impressed with the...More

With an hour or so to kill before boarding SofT back to Melbourne myself and my husband both did the gin tasting here on a Saturday late afternoon. 6 tastings for $15 is good value for money and the three base gins are excellent. The...More

A great place for drinks and gin particularly... Not being a gin drinker I did sample two very nice ones. A warm and relaxing atmosphere and the gin was great! Definately worth revisiting for sure.

Minus a point only because it was difficult to locate through not having any external signage. Understandable with a move planned very soon but in the meantime a temporary sandwich board would have helped. The service from the young woman was friendly and informed. I...More

Great service and delicious gin. Really informative and made us (and the kids) feel comfortable. Can’t wait to see what their setup is like when they move to a bigger spot and can start up their bar proper again. Thanks

Friendly staff with an amazing depth of knowledge about Gins. $10 for the tasting was well worth it considering it gets deducted from any further purchases. Definitely worth a stop if you’re near Davenport.

We called into the Gin Distillery. Costs ten dollars to taste but was well worth the money. Jade was a wealth of information and kept us interested with his knowledge. If you love gin it’s worth a trip.

This place is a combination of a distillery and a really funky little bar. It is definetly worth doing a tasting of the three different Gins that they make. The staff have come up with some great flavour combinations that really show off the diferent...More
