One of the most sought out destinations in the Scenic Rim is the “Tamborine Mountain Distillery”. This is Australia’s smallest operating Pot Still Distillery, but of world renown, and attracts visitors from Europe, America, Canada, New Zealand and Asia.
With the combination of rich red volcanic soils and fresh spring water, the abundant fruit of the mountain is fermented and distilled onsite. A small Pot Still is used to create the superb spirit which is the essence and foundation of Liqueurs, Schnapps, Vodka and Eaux de Vie.
Michael and Alla Ward have established an enviable reputation as creators of high quality liqueurs, vodkas, schnapps and eaux-de-vie. This reputation, largely developed by word of mouth, has seen people eagerly visiting from all over the world.
The Distillery’s products have won numerous awards in America (Chicago, San Francisco) and Europe (London, Belgium, Germany, Austria) – it is, in fact, Australia’s most-awarded distillery and liquor brand in the new millennium.
The incredible range of fruit grown on Mt Tamborine is a wonderful resource. The Distillery also receives a considerable diversity of fruit from other growers which they turn into beautiful, smooth, Schnapps, Liqueurs, Fruit Brandy, Gins and Vodkas – all available from the cellar door, and most are in beautiful, hand-painted bottles.
The Distillery has received national and international media coverage. A visit always includes the personal touch – Michael and Alla, or maybe one of the two younger Wards love relating to small groups in telling their story, and have deliberately made their driveway narrow to preclude busloads of people arriving en mass.
The Distillery is open Monday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
