Top choice in Bellarine Peninsula

Set up by a local family who know their stuff, this gin distillery produces everything on-site and has a tasting room to sample the goods, accompanied by pizzas and local-produce platters. The single-malt whiskies are maturing in the barrel for a little longer, but it's definitely a product to keep your eye on.

The distillery occupies a historic site that was a watering hole for Cobb & Co horses.
