Alchemy Distillers

Distillery in Healesville

Adding to Healesville's reputation as a centre of excellence for craft beer and liquors, this boutique distillery in a laneway off the main street concocts intriguing tipples including chamomile gin, quinoa vodka and knock-your-socks-off moonshine. Head here on Saturdays in summer, when musicians play in the small courtyard and locals down the house spirits and Victorian beers and wines with alacrity.

Book ahead to take a guided tour and tasting ($10). To find it, head past Yarra Valley Cellar Door on Alchemy Lane.
