We are currently closed for tastings, but we have exciting news!
Our new distillery which will feature a distillery door, cafe & permaculture farm is underway and we could not be more excited.
With plans to open mid-late 2022 we will be sure to keep you updated on its progress.
This project is keeping us so busy that our tastings will recommence once the new distillery opens.
We are located 45 minutes north of Newcastle and only 30 minutes from Newcastle airport, along the scenic Bucketts Way. The Bucketts Way is an enjoyable country drive that meanders through rolling green hills and small rural communities and is the gateway to the Barrington Tops National Park.
There are a number of beautiful and interesting places to visit along the Bucketts Way including wineries, cafes, farmers markets, farms, antique stores and stunning national park walks so why not make it a day trip or weekend stay and add the following stops on your ‘Bucketts List’.
