A truly unique rainforest & distillery experience
Visit our Byron Distillery
Cape Byron Distillery is nestled in the hills behind Byron Bay, just fifteen minutes from the centre of town.
Our cellar door is located in the heart of our family property with just a small parking area, so we ask that if possible, please use taxi or uber services or ride share with your friends.
We offer three unique experiences: Distillery & Rainforest Tours, Guided Tasting Sessions & Cocktail sessions. At present we must operate on an appointment-only basis, so we ask that you please follow the 'Book Now' link below or give us a call on 02 6684 7961
We are a COVID Safe venue, so if you feel unwell or have been to any hotspot areas, please stay home. In line with NSW Governments 'Road to Recovery', we also request that you only attend our Cellar Door if you have been double vaccinated. This is only in place until the 15th of December 2021 as per Government guidelines.
We are happy to reschedule your booking if needed or discuss the best option for your situation.
We look forward to welcoming you to our distillery and rainforest soon!
Rainforest & Distillery Tour
Our tours kick-off on the balcony where you are greeted with a Gin & Tonic garnished with Native Finger Lime & Aniseed Myrtle. We will then take you on a journey through the story of our distillery, the Brook family farm and the regeneration done on the property. During a short stroll through our subtropical rainforest, see, smell and touch the native rainforest botanicals that are used in the award-winning Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, while learning the history of the Big Scrub rainforest. Afterwards, we come back up to the distillery for a full guided tasting, while discussing the art of distillation. The tour duration is around 1 hour and 45 minutes. After the tour, groups are more than welcome to relax on the balcony while sipping on a seasonally-crafted cocktail.
Tasting flights start at $16 and include a Brookie’s Gin & Tonic plus a sample of our Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin and Mac. Liqueur. For an additional $2, you can add on a sample of our New Make Spirit that is slowly maturing into a beautiful whisky. Other seasonal features may also be available to add on to the flight. One of our cellar door staff will walk you through each taster provided. A tasting session is about 10 minutes in duration.
Already done the tour? No worries! Groups are welcome to come in just to enjoy a cocktail or two out on our balcony space. We offer the usual culprits, think Brookie’s Gin & Tonic or Slow Gin and Ginger, plus a selection of seasonally-crafted features showcasing our range. Drink prices from $9
