“A great place to visit”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Had a great time here and stocked up on some great local oils & beauty products. The owner showed us around, shared his knowledge and had us laughing with his jokes. Walking around the property and seeing first hand how eucalyptus oil is made was fascinating. Great place to visit!

A great stop to view the making of eucalyptus oil, as well as sample local cider and wines. A very good selection of local produce for sale.

“Fantastic personal service”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We were met at the door with a welcome and a smile, and shown a video about how eucalyptus oil was made. There is a huge shop with all things eucalyptus and a few things more. Well worth a visit.

“eucalyptus oil products and great apple cider”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

really interesting information on the history of eucalyptus oil distillery on the island and a wealth of products made from it. They now have an internet shop! The apple cider was so good - especially in temperatures of 40 plus!

We didn't do the tour but the gift shop and free video were worth visiting. Some great products and interesting history of the distillery.
