Great Northern Distillery

Please note, opening days and times may vary, please contact this business before visiting.

The personable folk at The Great Northern Distillery have the process of spirit-tasting down to a fine art, offering their range of cane spirit, premium barrel-aged rum, gin, vodka and delectable liqueurs since 2006, served as 15ml nips, neat or over ice.

This friendly boutique distillery is home to the Kimberley Rum Company and internationally acclaimed Canefire Rum, which started life as sugarcane growing in the Ord River Valley in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Bar staff are always keen to spin a yarn, and their cocktail list caters to even the most particular of palates. Whether you decide on a refreshing mojito, a cheeky gin and tonic, or simply a tipple of handcrafted premium Australian rum, take a seat in the courtyard or grassed al fresco by the tiki bar, in the heart of WA's luscious wine country and let your hair down.

Pay a visit late in the year and you may get to try the company’s annual small batch limited release – a blend of rum and Swan Valley fortified – which hits the shelves each November.

In depth tours through the distillery are operated Monday to Friday (by appointment), where guests are guided through the distilling and manufacturing process, with a number of samples along the way.

When visiting for a distillery door tasting experience, group bookings are essential.
