The tasting room was hosted by a very helpful and well informed young French lady who arrived on a bicycle from the distillery. Tastings were free unless trying the whisky. Their gin varieties are very good. Vive la France.

We popped in at around noon and had a nice whiskey and gin tasting. Unfortunately, they charge you 10 AUD for the Whiskey. Gin is for free. But if you have a look on the pricing, you will understand. Are these 10 AUD (Dec. 2017)...More

Called in here on the off chance they might be open, what a surprise, a lovely tour of the distillery at a moments notice. William McHenry was very accomodating and informative about the distilling process. Will definitely call back to get more Gin!
