About
Built on the Dessert family farm just outside of Kununurra, the small pot distillery was created entirely by hand. Everything, from the still to the building itself, was crafted from materials found around the farm. Spike even taught himself to distil, with nothing more than a passion to make good, honest rum. After 25 years, nothing’s changed. Made from Australian sugarcane, wet season rainwater, and yeast, our Ord River Rum’s still made by hand. It’s vat-fermented, pot-distilled, painstakingly aged in oak barrels, and hand-bottled by us. The 300-litre oak barrels naturally colour and flavour our rum, giving you a smooth, tropical flavour, with an oaky finish. Come out for tastings of our Award-winning rums or for our delicious home-made cakes. Better yet from May onwards until Mid-September come out and enjoy one of our yummy lunches while relaxing in our beer garden. We are well worth the drive (15km out of town along Weaber Plains Road)

The staff were friendly and accomodating.
We tried all the tasting options (food, cocktails, liqueurs and rums!) and loved all of it.
Margo was informative and engaging.

Worth a lunchtime stop
Sep. 2021
Hadn't intended to visit but we time to kill on our last day we popped out for lunch here. Great little spot.

Taco portions were small but yummy and paring it with a rum and coke and a gin cocktail at sensible prices was a rare lunchtime treat.

Glad we managed to pop in after all.

Hidden little gem in Kununurra
May 2021
This was a fun stop over on our touring in Kununurra. Great history to the place, oldest continuously legal still in WA and producing great products today.
Tasting samples reasonably priced and happy to mail purchases all over Australia if travelling light as our group were.
Personally not into rum but appreciate where they are coming from. Worth a thumbs up!

Amazing rums, gin and chocolate cake!
May 2021
This is a place not to be missed when visiting Kununurra. It’s not far out of town, in the flood irrigation area. A rustic shed type building with tonnes of character. Multiple tasting paddles and combinations offered at quite reasonable prices. The spirits and liqueurs are very well crafted with the chocolate rum cake being a fantastic finish.

Very Disappointed
Jul. 2020
After travelling the 15kms out to the Distillery, we found it was closed for a private function AND no open for eating....... NONE of which was advertised on their website. The website is also very confusing in that it advertises having a cafe but one has to scroll all the way through to find the main courses as it infers it only cater for cakes and coffee.
In this day and age, it is not too difficult to up date a web page regularly.
AND we read through the website carefully and repeatedly because many places have changed their hours of business (and notified the public accordingly), prices and menus.

The drive out to the Hoochery through the sugar cane fields and sandalwood trees was pleasant...... however, we won’t bother again.
