A little distillery with plenty of varietals to taste. The gardens and animals are also a pleasant attraction especially for the non-drinkers.

Went there today Wednesday. Weren’t asked if we would like to taste anything, actually it was an effort for the young lady to say “hi” only after my husband spoke. Too busy with her mobile to be bothered or that’s how it seemed.

Dear GillianClan Thank you for your review. You have the cost for 1 sample correct however if you choose to experience more the cost reduces dramatically. It is a legal requirement to charge for spirit tastings in QLD and not something we can simply ignore....More
