Great place to try some hand crafted spirits and excellent food. Unlike other craft breweries and distilleries the food here is outstanding. Great for evenings or Sunday brunch. We've been here several times and are never disappointed.

The tour was very good. The atmosphere for supper was nice. Service great, perhaps just a little pushy on the drinks but otherwise fantastic.

I found the cocktails a bit pricey considering the alcohol is being produced on site. Don't get me wrong, the drinks were great.

We went for Brunch which was excellent and reasonably priced and combined with the Distillery Tour which is well worth the visit.

This small distillery is a bit of a gem. There’s always a table open and the mixologist is top notch. Highly recommend the Penicillin cocktail made with Burwood honey Eau de Vie. Only drawback was the noise of the bar glass washer since we sat next to it.

When you go, check out the upstairs lounge area.

The food was outstanding but the service was lacking. Our server had little knowledge of the menu and was not attentive - didn't refill coffee etc. Fortunately, the bartender made excellent drinks and the kitchen was great.

This is seriously the best kept secret in town. The chef has created a menu of incredible value that is both delicious and complimentary to Burwood's delectable spirits. The french fries alone are worth the trip and will make you truly understand the art of a great fry!

Great place! Unfortunately we had a reservation the same night as an 80 person party and our presence was clearly unwanted by the party guests. The restaurant staff accommodated us by moving us when they could. Other than that it was great! Food was fab, service was great, and the ambiance was lovely. Will be going back for brunch!

UPDATE- after our unfortunate first visit on the night of a large group party where we clearly weren’t welcome regardless of a reservation, we thought we would try again. I made a reservation only to be called a few days later and told ‘sorry we are closed that night for a group party’ Not sure if this is our bad luck or they are only doing large parties now but we won’t try again!

This is a gem sitting in a more industrial part of town, but don't let that deter you. They are there likely because they needed the space for their large distilling vats. The food is phenomenal and of course the Gin is great too!
