  • This is a great place to source some amazing, great quality spirits. The range of flavours is exceptional, and no nasty after taste! I could have easily brought one of each of the vodkas and liqueurs,...  more »

  • The vodka range, including coffee, chilli, caramel, lime and chocolate are great. Some excellent gins also. Great to experience a distillery where all products are made eighth on site and only sold on...  more »

  • We next moved onto the "test tube" part of the tour, but not as you might expect. The Hunter Distillery provided each person with about 10-15 test tubes of vodka shots, each with their own unique flavour that was always very different to the next. We were started off with the subtle flavours before moving into the harder stuff. For those not wanting to continue with the shots, they teach you a special way of tasting vodka without getting drunk. That is to put your thumb on top of the tube, give it a little shake, smell your thumb and lick it. This allows you to appreciate the flavour and then if you wish, you can down the rest. The vodka sampling included Apple, Caramel, Chilli, Chocolate, Ginger and Vanilla. If you think that's interesting, wait until you see the schnapps and liqueur range. Schnapps sampling included blueberry, butterscotch, chilli and choc mint. Liqueur sampling included choc orange, coconut rum, ginger, hazelnut, lime, mango and passion fruit. We were both quite pleased with the mango liqueur, but overwhelmed with the Ginger vodka which gave us the impression of drinking ginger beer, yet more adult friendly. Very few dared to try the Chilli vodka, and maybe it was all the alcohol talking but Matt put a brave face on and tried the notorious vodka. This was said to be rated higher than 10 on the chilli index, but has since been tuned down to an 8/10 and apparently is like having pure Thai chilli oil. Matt tested the waters by sampling it on his thumb before continuing to shot the rest. There wasn't much of a reaction even though the presenter emphasized that it can take anywhere between 10 – 15 minutes for the heat to die down. This was one of his proudest moments. HA
  • Very fun tasting experience, friendly liquor expert to talk us through all the flavours. A great variety of delicious high quality spirits.
  • Beautiful place with friendly and knowledgeable staff. They are an organic distillery in the Hunter Valley that produce spirits, we only tried their vodka and the flavours are amazing. Well worth a visit, it makes a nice change to the all the wine in the Hunter.
  • Visited today 14/9/16, came to sample & enquire about 3 day work conference. Was greeted by the lady at the cellar door with contempt and was an treated with rude motions, eg, asked about the distillery & was told to go outside & look in. Next asked about the vodka & the varieties & didn't get an answer, she just pointed to the menu on the counter. Well done, taking business elsewhere.
  • Awesome place with an incredible selection of spirits, go in small groups as you get to see more of what they have to offer. The various flavours are outstanding. A must see if you do a tour of the hunter.
