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 range from $9 to $17.
