The award-winning Brisbane Distillery Company has opened the doors to its brand new bar, event venue and gin school located in West End.
Taking up a prime spot on the corner of Jane Street and Montague Road, Brisbane Distillery offers a selection of more than 40 custom designed and created cocktails featuring the brand’s range of gin, ‘rhum’ and vodka.
Featuring a 23-metre-long cocktail bar, private booth seating and space for up to 120 guests, the 260-square-metre venue is available for exclusive hire and private tastings.
Owner and master distiller Jon Atherton said he is thrilled to welcome customers through the doors.
“The team has worked around the clock to bring the venue together and I can’t wait to be able to share it with the wider community,” he said prior to opening.
“We hope to see as many of you as we possibly can in the opening week and of course, look forward to establishing a regular customer base.”
Groups looking for an added event experience can take part in blending and tasting workshops in the adjoining Gin School.
The experience sees guests create and take home their own unique gin blend, selecting from over 150 botanicals.
Each Brisbane Distillery gin is made using natural Queensland ingredients, while their rhum is made in the French Caribbean style – directly from sugar cane juice, not molasses like most rum.
Brisbane Distillery will initially open under restrictions as set out by government and health authorities, with limitations on the numbers of Gin School participants and visitors at any one time.
