Hidden away in the Gold Coast Hinterland, is the Tamborine Mountain Distillery. This is Australia’s smallest operating Pot Still Distillery, but of world renown, including in Europe, America, Canada, New Zealand and Asia.
Established in 1993, we at Tamborine Mountain Distillery have established a world-wide reputation as creators of high quality liqueurs, vodkas, schnapps and eaux-de-vie. This reputation, largely developed by word of mouth and reinforced by now over 300 international awards, has seen people coming not only from all Australian states but from all over the world.
In 1992, we moved from Tasmania for a change of climate and lifestyle. We found this property with its many fruit trees on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and decided to settle. As we did not want to use chemical sprays on our fruit, we discovered that our products did not meet with market requirements. For a four person family, we had too much fruit, so we needed to ‘convert’ it into something which would make this small property productive. ‘Fermentation for the purpose of distillation’ was the goal – and so the small pot still was born!!
Distillery is open Mon. – Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (closed Sundays)
