We visited the Hunter Distillery mid-week, and so were lucky enough to get the complete attention of the staff member on duty. He was great: he asked after our tastes, and let us try everything we were interested in. When we ended up buying a significant amount, he even threw in a free bottle, making it incredibly worth our while.

More to the point, their products are incredible. I've never really liked gin before; theirs is absolutely delightful. Their flavours are all true to life - nothing artificial about them. We ended up going back on our last day to pick up a couple more things, and I'm quite sure we'll be purchasing more online in future!

We have been to the hunter multiple times, but never come to this little gem! Friendly, knowledgable and passionate staff made the tasting very pleasant, fun and educational. Amazingly great variety of deliciousness, there is something for everyone , especially for those allergic to sulfur preservatives (used in most wines) - these guys do not use any in their products. We will definitely be back !

Found this as a last minute thing and loved it. Beautiful australia organic gin, vodka and schnapps. Well. Worth going to the tasting was amazing. Loved the chilli vodka and the apple vodka. Going here every time I in the area from now on.

A staff of the hotel recommend us a stop on this place and we weren't disappointed.
The friendly staff encouraged us to taste almost all beverage choices and what had been a surprise after another, great flavours, nice ideas of cocktails and all organic (i don't really care for healthy things, but when it comes with no loss of flavour it's a interesting option).
Ideal place to take a break from wines.
I strongly recommend!

We came here as part of a bus tour. Our host was very fun and full on. I found the schnapps all a bit sweet, but the straight gin and vodka were both very clean. The chilli schnapps is worth a try if you're feeling adventurous.
