Imagine a place nestled atop a beautiful mountain, set against a backdrop of lush sub-tropical rainforest.
Imagine sampling a range of mouth-watering Liqueurs and Spirits that take your taste buds on a memorable journey. Imagine a place that can take you on a journey back in time to experience the real world of Elizabethan or Tudor England.
There is such a place and it is called Tamborine Mountain Distillery, a place where true old-world charm and history co-exists.
Tamborine Mountain Distillery was founded in 1993 by Michael and Alla Ward, and is the third oldest Distillery in Queensland. It was also the first allowed a Distillery License in over a hundred years by the State Government. Originally set up to use just the fruit and plants from their own orchard, however the business soon got quite successful and outstripped its own orchard. A quarter of a century later, and with well over 300 international awards under their belts, the Wards had become the most awarded Australian Distillery and Liquor brand in the new millennium.
The great news is that under new ownership, the business is booming, both domestically and internationally. There is an all new web presence and Distillery Club, but we have also been mindful to carefully retain the ‘olde worlde’ charm and essence of the founders and their artisanal approach to producing their award-winning Liqueurs and Spirits.
The plans are now to take these iconic drinks to the world, growing the business exponentially, both nationally and internationally. And what a great story to tell about this outstanding range of Australian inspired Liqueurs and Spirits.
Tamborine Mountain Distillery is open Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm and weekends until 5pm. Located near Gallery Walk, 10 Macdonnell Rd, Tamborine Mountain.
