In August 2017 we opened The Distillery, our Distillery Door Spirits Tasting & Cocktail Bar, another first for the Barossa. We are very lucky to be housed in the Old Penfolds Distillery on the Provenance Barossa site in Nuriootpa. This site has a very rich history of Distillation, it is home to some of the oldest commerical stills in Australia, including a Coffey Still of which there are only 3 in the world and what is currently one of the busiest commercial Distilling operations in Australia in Tarac Technologies.
Penfolds Wines operated the Distillery from 1913 through to approx. 1980 producing Brandy and grape spirit for fortifying their wines. Their legacy is a unique insight into a large commercial Distillery’s from a by-gone era and a timely reminder of the importance of distilling in the Barossa Valley. The Barossa is not just about great wines.
5 Days a week we offer structured tastings and tasting paddles of our own spirits. But we also offer an opportunity to taste from a curated list of great craft spirits from Australia and around the world. We are not just Gin! We have a great selection of whisk(e)y, Rum, Vodka, Brandy and Liquors for you to try.
The Distillery is a celebration of all things spirits so naturally, we spend a huge amount of time and effort creating some of the finest cocktails to be found in the Barossa. All available for you to enjoy in the bar or in our botanical garden seating area outside.
If spirits are not your thing we have local interesting Barossa wines from smaller producers and beer and some of the finest cocktails to be found in Barossa, both classic and contemporary.
We offer food all day Thursday – Sunday, with our Distillery bites menu offers a range of flavours from across the world, perfect for lunch a light dinner or a satisfying snack. We also offer traditional wood-fired pizza from our neighbors Ember Pizza to enjoy in The Distillery.
