Top Rating Tipples at Hunter Distillery

It’s long held a reputation for having world-class wines and winemakers, and it’s fast earning a reputation for outstanding cuisine and award-winning craft ales. But for some years now, the Hunter has also been home to a range of other top-rating tipples.

More commonly associated with the freezing conditions of far-off Russia, a variety of flavoured vodkas, as well as a unique selection of liqueurs, schnapps, gin and other speciality spirits are being distilled amongst the traditional vineyards of Wine Country – wowing customers and connoisseurs both at home and abroad.

These luscious spirits and liqueurs are being produced by the team at Hunter Distillery, located at 1686 Broke Road, Pokolbin.

Originally planned to be set up as a vineyard, the owners instead decided to tap into the growing interest in distilled spirits, and in particular vodka and gin. Vodka has long been the most popular spirit consumed in Australia, with data released by Roy Morgan Research revealing that just over 1.1 million adults drink vodka over an average four-week period. But while its popularity has remained virtually unchanged in the past five years, it certainly hasn’t gone unchallenged, with gin quickly gaining on its top-shelf rival.

Luckily for us, the team at Hunter Distillery has a range of both, including firm favourites apple or Chocolate Vodka, blackberry and butterscotch schnapps and of course the infamous Mystery Gin, which changes colour at the addition of tonic water.

Hunter Distillery is open for tastings and purchases seven days a week from 10am to 5pm, with their products also available for sale via their website at www.hunterdistillery.com.au
