Which local distiller is Australia’s highest internationally awarded gin?
Formally known as St Fiacre Distillery, Distillery Botanica is a tranquil oasis located one kilometre from Terrigal Drive, set among stately gums and turpentines. Distiller Philip Moore’s life long passion for herbs and spirits is captured in Australia’s highest internationally awarded gin and liqueur.
Take a refreshing deep breath at the front gate, relax your mind and slip into a green and fragrant land. Australian Native Liqueurs and Vodkas are handcrafted in the distillery from Australian native herbs and fruit such as Wild Lime and Lemon Myrtle. The Fragrant Gardens have been totally replanted with beautiful fragrant plants that are hardy for our changing climate while the herb garden is suitable for the world's driest continent. There is also a lush food garden that's been recently planted also.
"It was in 2007 I felt I needed a sea change and with the guidance of two books, the internet and the purchase of a an extremely tiny still, I initiated myself in the ancient art and science of distilling."
Come and see the custom-made distillery where Philip creates his unique range of Australian Native Liqueurs and Vodka. Tour Groups are welcome - from Basic Tour and Tasting, or add on the Full High Spirits Tour. Call or email to confirm your group visit.
