About
A must-do activity for visitors to Byron Bay! Join us for a truly unique Rainforest & Distillery Tour experience… Our tours kick-off on the balcony of our cellar door where you are greeted with a Gin & Tonic garnished with Native Finger Lime & Aniseed Myrtle. We will then take you on a journey through the story of our distillery, the Brook family farm and the regeneration of the property. During a guided stroll through our subtropical rainforest, see, smell and touch the native rainforest botanicals that are used in our award-winning Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, while learning the history of the Big Scrub rainforest. Once back in the distillery, you will be lead through an in-depth tasting of our products… and no doubt a few special surprises! Enjoy a fun sensory experience guided by our distillery tour team. The tour duration is around 1 hour and 45 minutes. After the tour, groups are welcomed to relax a little longer and sip on one of our seasonally-crafted cocktails. See you soon!

We booked the distillery tour and tasting, it was great! The complimentary g&t to start was good. Our guide was Ramae and he was excellent. We started with a talk at the bar and then went for an easy walk around the grounds seeing some of the botanicals that are used in the Brookie's gin. Back at the distillery we then had a tasting of 4 different gins, the original and the Shirl the Pearl were the best. We had booked a bar table afterwards and had a spicy Shirl the Pearl margarita and shared some olives (unfortunately they had sold out of most the other snacks on the menu). Look out for the wild koalas that call the car park their home!

We had a fabulous time (again) at the Cape Byron Distillery. Gorgeous views, great flights of gin and whiskey to taste, lovely staff. Grab some platter foods out of the fridge, order a cocktail before your tasting flights and sit for a bit. Koalas an extra bonus.

The tour was a great way to learn about the distillery and its products in a short time. We walked in the rain forest and saw the botanicals that they use to make their gins. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything in an engaging and clear way. We also got to taste almost all of their gins and discover their unique flavors. It was an amazing experience and a must-do for anyone who loves gin.

A bit off the main road but very close to The Farm this little distillery is a good opportunity for an afternoon cocktail.

Pros:
- Lauren, amazing tour guide! Thank you for your personable service and great your! We learnt so much!
- the tasting at the end taught us a lot about gin that we never knew as avid gin drinkers
- rainforest is stunning
- great to be offered a gin while on the tour

Cons:
- Slow Gin not to my taste, but the rest was fantastic!

A great visit and highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Even if you’re not a huge gin fan, you learn so much about the botanicals in the forest and is a great learning experience!

A very nice place to sit and relax and taste their whiskey. The views from the balcony are great and very calming. Not a lot of parking but still worth going.

Jordan was fantastic with her knowledge about the distillery and how it was brought about. Great story and we loved it. We also saw a koala in a tree which has always been on my bucket list ✅
