About
Located on the main road as you enter Hahndorf, your experience begins with a walk through our Distillery Garden planted with some of the botanicals used in the production of Gin. Our Distillery and Tasting Bar has indoor and outdoor space for you to try our beautiful Award winning Gins. The building is surrounded by rural landscape and inside is fitted out with polished concrete floors, natural timber and reclaimed red brick walls with windows that open up to the surrounding rural views. The copper Still is on display and you might get to meet a Distiller. Our staff take you through a Gin Tasting Flight and answer questions you have about distilling. You can indulge in a G&T, one of our cocktails or a Share Plate featuring local products like cheeses and meats from the menu. We also offer beer, soft drinks and a few other options. Drop in for a visit, or book into our ‘Meet the Distillers’ or ‘Gin Blending Masterclass’. Group bookings are essential.

Lovely atmosphere & beautiful views, however the service was incredibly slow. We had a prior booking & it took nearly two hours for two rounds of drinks to be served. Granted it was a busy long weekend, but for a gin place to pour a G&T it took a very long time. We also felt that the walk ins got priority over the booked groups. Sadly because of the lack of service we won’t be back.

Attended the Gin Masterclass over the weekend at the Ambleside Distillery set in a lovely location not far from the Handorf village.
The distillery is still under construction however, there is a small interal seating area and lots of covered outdoor seating overlooking the beautiful countryside.
As it was called a Masterclass I expected more detailed information / instruction. It was a very loose, casual affair and the best part was the opportunity to make 2 gin mixes of your own concoction to take home.
Those attending were offered 10% off food and gin purchases.
This will be a lovely venue when fully completed and able to seat the 150 patrons as planned.

Noice distillery, liked the combos for the tastings on the gin flight although the coffee beans and jalapeños was a bit far out for me!! Would come again

We came here as part of a private tour and we could have stayed for hours if we didn't have a flight to catch. We were greeted and seated quickly and the manager Josh sat with us to tell us all about their Gins and their story which we loved hearing. We had a cheese board to go with our Gin tasting which was delicious, we really appreciated the time they spent with us and eagerly await their new releases.

Lovely flights of gin and fantastic cocktails. Lovely setting and friendly staff. Can't wait to try the pear and gin preserve and jalapena sauce.

Thought we would check the distillery out while we were visiting Hahndorf. Great little spot and location with a wide selection of different gin concoctions to choose from (I just got the flight of three because I wanted to try them all and my partner tried the new-old-fashioned) !
We can definitely recommend to come visit and perhaps next time we will have to either stay up in Hahndorf or find a non-drinker to drive us!

From the walk past the gardens with botanicals used in their gin, to the cute deck with bushland views, we stumbled upon this relaxed but quality distillery.

The service was professional but warm and the way the gin tasting was presented was different to any other we have been to.

Trying the gins straight, on ice and then with tonic and matched garnishes was a fun and memorable tasting experience.

The small crowd was a fun mix that added to the very enjoyable experience.

P.S the Gins were great with some winning recent awards.

Cant wait to return with family and friends.
