In 1879, the Queenscliff Brewhouse formerly the Palace Hotel and The Esplanade Hotel, was established and the dry cellar was constructed for the storage of rums and whiskies directly off-loaded from ships in barrels. This former dry cellar has now been converted and reinvigorated as the Queenscliff Distillery making a return to its former glory days of spirit storage. The Queenscliff Distillery is a full mash distillery producing from a 600-litre handcrafted copper pot.

The Queenscliff Distillery has launched its first range of Gin all infused with coastal botanicals to reflect their nautical and unique coastal location. Queenscliff Distillery‘s core range of gins include a classic dry 42% ABV, a navy strength 57% ABV, a cirtus gin 42% ABV and botanical gin 42% ABV. The range has extended since we began distilling and now includes six gins and a liqueur. One of the crowd’s favourites is our Pink Hibiscus Gin 42% ABV, perfectly paired with some ruby grapefruit.

Queenscliff Distillery is also in full production of whiskies and rums all currently being aged in oak barrels.

Queenscliff Distillery and cellar door is located at the Queenscliff Brewhouse and open 7 days a week with cellar door for tasting and retail sales.
