POKOLBIN DISTILLERY - OUR STORY
Pokolbin Distillery is a locally owned business which opened in November 2019. All of our product is made in-house, starting with our high-quality base spirit made by our award-winning distiller, produced in small batches in copper pot stills. This is then combined with naturally sourced ingredients that are inspired by our family's Polish heritage and Australia's native botanicals. Three generations of distillers have refined this process, to provide you an authentic product we are proud to present here in the Hunter Valley.
Visiting our distillery door to taste our premium range of Gins, Vodkas and Liqueurs will ignite your senses. Our fun-loving and attentive staff will guide you through an individualised tasting experience in our bespoke tasting glasses, surrounded by stunning copper bench tops, repurposed timber and ambient pendant lighting. Come join us at our new distillery door in Pokolbin, the heart of the Hunter Valley.
If you’re on the search for a locally made gin, the choice is yours. For the discerning gin connoisseur, as a gift or for your own collection, we have four to choose from:
Classic Dry Gin
A perfect balance of botanicals making it a breeze to create the ultimate Gin & Tonic or Negroni cocktail.
Native Plum Finger Lime
An aromatic gin also harnessing dry properties. We’ve utilised the intense flavour profile of the Davidson Plum in the current batch to complement the invigorating finger lime.
Refreshing mint, this gin finishes with hints of aniseed shining through from the star anise.
