Hot on the heels of receiving international acclaim for their range of gin, rhum and vodka, Brisbane Distillery Company is now set to embark on an even bigger adventure – to showcase their multi-award winning spirits at a brand new 260sqm West End venue.

Encompassing a 23 metre long cocktail bar, blending counter with tastings, and a custom designed, state-of-the-art Gin School, the company is set for continued success as they celebrate the end of a very long year together with their beloved local community. The opened premises is located next door to the existing Distillery, on the corner of Jane Street and Montague Road in West End.

With an initial offering including more than 40 custom designed and created cocktails – each based on one of the distillery’s unique liquors, private booth seating, a retail space and the opportunity to book the full venue exclusively, the venue has been several months under construction – designed and project managed by owner Jon Atherton.

The adjoining Gin School has been designed as an extension of the original, offers guests the opportunity to create and take home their own unique gin blend, selecting from more than 150 botanicals. The two-hour, professionally led Gin School experience is held in small groups with beverages and refreshments served throughout.

Reflecting the exponential success of the business over the past months, Owner and Master Distiller Jon Atherton is thrilled to be able to bring his unique brand of hospitality to even more customers. “The team has worked around the clock to bring the venue together and I can’t wait to be able to share it with the wider community. We hope to see as many of you as we possibly can in the opening week and of course, look forward to establishing a regular customer base.”

The 120-person venue will initially open under restrictions as set out by government and health authorities, with limitations on the numbers of Gin School participants and visitors at any one time. Additionally, all guests must check-in and be seated at all times when sampling the menu.
