We were recommended to visit the distillery by a family member in the trade. It was great fun and the place was interesting. The staff were friendly and enjoyed their jobs and this always makes a visit to a place such as this extra special. Also just about everyone we bumped into who had visited or was a local recommended... More

I tried 3 rums. The single barrel being the best by far. We had good coffee and an ice cream sandwich each. We bought several shirts that were reasonably priced.

this place hasnt changed. though they might have a few more items to taste ( $5 for a taste of 3). though the price has gone up, this might reflect the lack of sugar in town. I am disappointed to hear that the label will be changing. might not buy next time as that is the second best thing about... More

As rum lovers/amateur rum experts as we like to call ourselves we had to stop in at the Hoochery to see what they had to offer and sample the wares. Just a short drive north of Kununurra make sure you have one person to be your designated driver as the samplings can be great fun and not expensive either but... More

While hubby enjoyed some rum tastings, the kids and I enjoyed the displays and coffee and cake. A great little cafe on a warm afternoon, with activities for the kids and a small outdoor play area, next to the outdoor seating. It is out of town, so be aware of how much you're tasting if you're driving. If you love... More

I'm not a Rum drinker but hubby is. We called in here to grab a bottle as a gift and hubby had a tasting of 3 different varieties. I sipped the last out of the shot glasses just to tick of the experience. All seemed to be nice. The whole visitors area is very rustic and welcoming. Had to grab... More

I had my firsy drop of ORR at a restaurant and was impressed so decided it was a must stop. They have won some big international awards and it was evident in the tasting. Sadly the best product was out of my price range but not unaffordable for this quality. The location has a great ambiance about it and would... More

It's expensive but unique the rum produced at this family run distillery. It has a restaurant with nice selection of food. Rum tastings are available for $2 per taste. Plenty of room and parking. Has a nice old historic feeling.
