We enjoyed a tasting of 5 liqueurs for $5. After the tasting we decided that the wattle toffee liqueur was the best. Absolutely delicious! The owners of the distillery are very friendly and knowledgeable about all their products. We really enjoyed our time there.

If you haven't been here yet, seriously what are you waiting for? So many flavours to choose from, all made on site and sold in hand painted bottles. While you are welcome to taste, don't get too carried away if you're driving. I have taken many people here and not one has left empty handed. The staff are great, the... More

We were warmly greeted by the owner on our drive in. We were offered the $5 for 5 samples which we shared. Lovely selection and great tastes. Go for the chili chocolate or coffee liqueurs. And make sure you drink them as recommended. Some are great with ice cream for an adults only dessert

This should be on your must-visit list when on the mountain. Not only do they have an extensive range of spirits and liqueurs but they are bottled oh so nicely - hand painted by the distiller's wife, the bottles are keepsakes even after the drink is finished. The location is pretty and you can taste before you purchase.

We visited the distillery this morning and had the most wonderful experience! It is set in beautiful gardens and fountains, with gorgeous 2 story character European buildings, all built by the owners, and a sight in themselves. Michael is the creater of the grounds, whilst his Russian born wife Alla produces all the spirits and is a qualified Master Distiller.... More

Its probably 7 years since our last visit. Nothing has changed not even the prices. Micheal is the same welcoming fella with so many liqueurs that pack a big punch. If your visiting the area, its a must do but mainly for adults.

Michael is a flamboyant local character who plays up to visitors peddling his amazing range of award winning liqueurs ... the range is ever increasing and usually wins awards at international competitions in Europe ... it's fun tasting a few varieties but be careful not to try too much if you're driving.

Fantastic range of liqueurs which are really tasty. Reasonable prices for tasting and products. Tasting room is really cramped if you arrive at the wrong time. Disappointed that we couldn't see the still (if they have one).

This is a fantastic place with great staff. We had the tutored tasting and came away with two bottles and are sampling one with our cheese as I review. The owner is a star and a character, larger than life. Well worth a visit

This is not a distillery, it's a gift shop. They just purchase neutral alcohol and mix it with commercial flavor kits. Take a look through the windows. Shame!! When asked if we could have a tour of the still they said they couldn't due to alcohol licensing and H&S - even thou the local brewery down the road Fortitude Brewery... More

Dear Jason, Thank you for your review. We always value the opinion of our customers and are rightfully proud of the high award status we have received from TripAdvisor over the last five years. Sadly it seems in this instance you arrived at our tasting room at a busy time with an expectation that we should drop everything and give... More
