Posted

Recently a new distillery reached out to us to have a taste of their products and boy were were in for a treat.

They have resurrected an old distillery from 1914 with, new, 21st century technology while maintaining the original copper stills. While their equipment and methods are a mix of old school and modern, there is nothing modern about their look with each label being created by local artists encapturing the riverland around Renmark

Not Your Nanna's Brandy

This funky brandy is made with old chardonnay barrels which is used to give the brand a fresh new taste for a new millennium.
