Called in to the Hunter Distillery on the way back to our accommodation after an excellent lunch at Nana Kerr's restaurant (recommended) just to try something different. We were standing at one of the tasting counters and were asked to go to the other side...More

If you want to taste something different from wine, this is the place. Nice flavoured spirits and liqueurs. Unfortunately the staff struggle to keep up on busy days so there is a lot of waiting.

I am not a gin lover, but this changed my mind. We were tired of wine tasting so sought something different, and found this place. Not fancy, it's in a warehouse up a dirt road, with the bathrooms out back in the rear. They are...More

This is the place to go to break up wines tasting. You can sample gin, schnapps, vodka all out of a quirky test tube. Does get very crowded and can be a bit noisy when here are large groups there.

As I went with a large group we did call to let them know we were coming ahead, but 5 people should be fine. (Just check that they are open when you plan to go). Enjoy the tasting!
