Set on a picturesque winery, the hosts are very welcoming and explain the gin-making process over a welcome gin and tonic. Then the hands-on part starts with a variety of herbs and spices to flavour your own personal bottle, and keep tasting as you go. Bob is on hand to guide and advise. A thoroughly enjoyable and fun way to spend a couple of hours. Good value.

Came here as part of a friends (twins) suprise joint birthday celebrations. His fiance organised it, turn up have a few gin samples, then a full lesson on how it's made and then a chance to create your own unique blend of gin. Cheese platter provided while you made your recipe's and you got a bottled version of your best gin mailed to you a few weeks later. Very cheap for what you do and the staff were great.

Bass and Flinders Distillery are in the business of producing some very fine gin, vodka and soon some very nice cognac.

Wayne and Bob, the owners, have produced some wonderfully eclectic varieties of gin so if you are a connoisseur of gin, I recommend you visit their establishment and give you taste buds a day out. Their Limoncello makes a delicious after dinner tipple too!!!!
