Yesterday we included the Hunter distillery in our wine tour and I am so glad that we did it was so much fun as well as delicious tastings. Amber was our host and she was relatable, entertaining and knowledgeable, with our tastings we shared laughter and some fun tunes.
We tasted Gins, Vodkas and Liqueurs all different varieties all tasting amazing, two favourites were the popcorn liqueurs (actually like eating popcorn) and the Mango liqueur

Love this distillery. The team are always passionate and knowledgeable.
Amber (or as we like to call her- Mel *sorry!*) was absolutely fantastic, entertaining and went above and beyond with the group tour we went on, and also individually to make our experience there just outstanding.
Thank you team, a truly memorable place to visit in person.

Great local distillery with a wide range of gins, vodkas and liqueurs. For a fee of $5 you can enjoy tasting of five different samples of your choice from a wide menu. Unfortunately this is not refunded if you make a purchase at the end which we did. Nevertheless it was an informative and enjoyable experience.

We tasted the gin & vodkas only. The lady was very helpful and explained how to try the drinks to get the taste. The place had walk-ins happening and the two hosts were accomodating.

Staff were rude and abrupt from the get go. They hurried us from the moment we sat down, it was not an enjoyable experience. I would not recommend it to others

Nice place to spend an hour or so. Carol was fantastic, and explained fully the 8 tastings we tried, how to drink them correctly to get the full effect of the flavours. Gin, vodka, liqueur and schnapps. We could have stayed longer.

Came here for a tasting experience with family on a Saturday around midday in a group of 6.

We walked in for a tasting and were seated immediately, with the hosts knowing that we were still waiting for 2 members of the group (who were running around 10 minutes late).

During the wait we were subject to a number of snide comments from the staff member serving us, which were also directed to the two latecomers once they had arrived. We did not experience this with staff other than the older woman who ran our tasting, which was a plus.

Overall the tasting experience was a good one as far as they go, with a good variety on offer and flexibility provided regarding who wanted to taste what.

The drinks themselves were hit and miss - with many carrying a cheap, ethanol after-taste. However there were some standouts, including the jailhouse gin (dry and citrus-rich with a spicy pepper finish) and the Turkish delight liqueur.

Overall - a good experience at a reasonable price, but not one I would rush back for.

Didn’t find the experience fulfilling. The inside of the building lacked personality and I was unsure what effect they were going for with the tables and chairs.
The chap looking after us was nice but was a bit like the building!!!!
I don’t find different flavoured spirits to be inspiring at all. With the gins there were subtle differences between each one, but just favouring schnapps with butterscotch, mango, strawberry or popcorn is just a stock standard flavoured drink.
A lot of people were there enjoying themselves and that added to a nice atmosphere, but I think they were aiming low with trying flavoured spirits from small test tubes that had no character.
The 3 gins on offer were nice.

Great atmosphere and the guys serving know their stuff and great sellers. Tasting in test tubes is cute and taste testing price is very reasonable. Popcorn liquor is another level.
