Well worth visiting, this unique, family-run distillery is amazing to see if only for the amount of liqueur, gin, vodka and other spirit variations on offer for tasting for a nominal fee ( rebatable upon purchase - and everyone does buy!). As part of a personalised tour, we sampled our choice of Wattle Toffee, Ginger, Choc n Chili, Licorice and Jaffa liqueurs. Flavours were strong and true to the liqueur ingredient. Our particular favorites were the Limoncello ( and no wonder the distillers beat the Italians at their own game with this delicious award-winner) and the Ginger liqueur. The hand painted 375ml bottles are an added purchase bonus, and make a beautiful gift.

This distillery is well worth a visit- it has a delightful and quaint surrounding garden area.

The main draw card is sampling the liqueurs and other specialty alcoholic beverages they produce- for a modest fee, they will give you samples; if you buy, then they rebate the cost of the sampling. They make a good gift!

A unique aspect of their products is the hand painting of the bottles- which they say is done at the distillery.

Well worth a visit!

There is not a lot to 'see' here but there is a lot to taste

A fantastic husband and wife team who make their own liquor including flavoured vodkas. They have won awards internationally for many of their unique flavours including 'toffee wattle'.

Bottles are $40 roughly, more if you want it hand painted as a gift item. - well worth it

Tasting are $5 roughly and as the drinks are strong easily able to be shared between 2.

It can get busy, I'd book if you were able to or else come on a weekday for more customer attention.

If you like a drink then this place is a must (well even if you don’t drink) the atmosphere is fantastic.
I don’t drink and this makes the wife happy, I do the driven she can try the local made wines and liquors. The distillery has every single liquor you can think of, from memory about $40 a bottle. One little secret make sure you ask for the hand painted bottle very nice. Just be careful driven down the driveway one car at a time, worth the trip.

One of the Must visit place at Tamborine Mountain. Michael, the owner is a great character if you have the time to talk to him. Try some samples and you will be rewarded with great recommendations. Definite the place to visit!
