The Barossa Distilling Company, nestled in the heartland of Australia’s premium wine region, has released the first-ever Barossa gins using local grape spirit. The two small-batch gins, Generations Gin and Budburst (fondly referred to as the pink gin), can be enjoyed at the recently opened Craft Spirit Tasting Room and Bar: The Stillery.
Could there be a better place to find a craft spirits tasting room than in the 1913 decommissioned Penfolds Distillery at the world-renowned Penfolds winery? We think not! Surrounded by some of the largest brandy stills of their time, you can enjoy a carefully selected range of small batch gins, whiskeys and spirits from around the world. Tastings can be done individually, by paddle, or in delectable cocktails (Espresso Martini complete with honeycomb garnish!). Quality local food platters are also available.
The new outdoor Botanical garden is springing into life. Visitors can spill out onto the outdoor seating area, surrounded by lawn with bats and balls to entertain the kids. A healthy children's platter is available.
The Stillery is also available for private hosted events or venue hire. Events can include guided tastings and cocktail making ...... think shaking-and-stirring under copper lights behind the bar.
