Overview
More
Located on a scenic acreage property at Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, owners Trudy, Steve and Matt invite all gin lovers to their Distillery and Tasting Bar. Enjoy our picturesque setting while kicking back, relaxing and sipping one of our handcrafted signature gins made in our Australian crafted still and perhaps a cocktail and a food platter! Our “Big Dry Gin” offers a classic dry style plus the big flavour of our favourite pepper, the Jalapeno. "No 8 Botanical Gin" showcases beautiful local citrus, surrounded by other local and classic botanicals. Our "Small Acre Gin" uses twelve ingredients including produce from our distillery garden, local and native botanicals. Visit our fully licenced tasting bar for a gin tasting flight, a G&T, gin cocktails or a delicious food platter.
