What we’re doing is new and exciting, but we’re also staying True to our Roots. We make our liquors using pure, natural Queensland ingredients, taking inspiration from the history and heritage of our great state.
So, what better icon to put at the heart of our logo than The Old Windmill in Brisbane? One of the oldest landmarks in Queensland, it was built by convicts to grind grain for the colony but was also a communications tower.
The time ball on its mast helped navigators down in the port set their instruments, it had Brisbane’s first telegraph machine, and later became a radio and television broadcast tower.
Just like the old mill, Brisbane Distillery Company is rooted in Queensland but connected to the rest of the world.
The base spirits for our gins and vodkas are made by us with care and consideration.
First we select only the finest grain from Queensland.
The grain is then milled, mashed, fermented and distilled into pure grain spirit in our prized iStill. The entire pure grain spirit production process takes up to two weeks.
There might be easier ways, but this is the right way.
We all want to reduce our environmental impact and one of the ways we can help is to encourage the re-use of our bottles, labels and corks. So Brisbane Distillery will offer a bottle refill service at our distillery door in West End.
Register now and you'll be the first to be invited to join the program when we next offer it, and your first bottle refill will be free.
All rums are not the same, we're making Rhum! Rhum is made in the French Caribbean style - directly from sugar cane juice, not molasses like most rum.
Our fresh virgin juice only comes from the first crush at the Rocky Point Sugar Mill - just 30 minutes down the road. Harvest runs between July and November.
To preserve the bright, fresh terroir we begin fermenting the juice within an hour of the crush and then run a single distillation at over 70% ABV.
