From humble beginnings as a home-based craft business launched 1 year ago the husband-and-wife team at Ladbroken Distilling Co. are thrilled to be opening their Tumbarumba distillery tasting room.
Visitors step into a different world when they open the shiny copper door and can expect to be taken on a taste adventure with tasting flights and samples available of the various spirits crafted on site. The space is compact but includes a tasting bar, a viewing window into the production area and large apothecary of ingredients on display so everyone has the chance to see the distillation process and botanical ingredients up close.
“I love the gasp of surprise that people make as they come in. The sumptuous décor makes it a warm and cosy place to gindulge in a new experience and learn a bit about our craft” said Robbie Ladbrook, who develops all the recipes for the gin range and runs the tasting room on the weekends.
“We are thrilled to be launching the ‘Cocktail Club’ on our first-year anniversary which will see the venue operate like a prohibition style speakeasy from 4pm-6pm on Saturday evenings (from July 16, 2022) serving up full serve drinks and cocktails using our gin”.
“It’s great to be able to finally welcome people to our site and introduce them not only to our craft and spirits but also show them the different plants that we grow on site and use in our gins. We find that people are dropping in because they are curious and because we are located right in the middle of town, they can walk to us as they wander along the creekscape visiting the sculptures or exploring town. We also have pooch friendly seating outdoors in the gazebo area and bike parking for those who have finished riding the rail trail,” said Robbie.
Reservations for the Cocktail Club can be booked online along with Distillery Discovery Experiences which are conducted each Saturday at midday allowing participants to discover first-hand how the spirits are made and bottled.
