Sip gin, tour the rainforest and learn about the art of distillation.
Visit Cape Byron Distillery for where Brookie’s Gin is masterfully crafted with native rainforest botanicals in the hinterland of Byron Bay. A short drive from Byron Bay or Bangalow, the distillery is set in the heart of the Brook family’s macadamia farm surrounded by subtropical rainforest where many of the botanicals are sourced and are the inspiration to create Brookie’s Byron Gin.
The Distillery tour begins with a refreshing Gin & Tonic served with Aniseed Myrtle and Finger Lime. Next, we take you on a guided walk through the subtropical rainforest where you will learn about the history of the Big Scrub Rainforest and see many of the Brookie’s Gin native Australian botanicals growing on the farm. Then we return back to the distillery for a guided tasting and a talk about the art of distillation. After the tour, relax on the deck overlooking Brookfarm, sip seasonally-crafted cocktails, watch the birds and enjoy the view.
Open to the public every Saturday and Sunday as well as Friday afternoons for sunset sessions. The tour, for a cost of $40 per person, offers a unique experience for visitors and locals to sample an award-winning gin. Includes a taste of our Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, Brookie’s Slow Gin, Mac. (a Macadamia & Wattleseed liqueur), and a sneak peak tasting of our New Make Spirit which is slowly maturing into a beautiful whisky.
Not enough time for a tour? Not to worry – you may come by for just a short tasting session or a few cocktails. All visits must be booked ahead of time. See you there!
