In 1992, we moved from Tasmania for a change of climate and lifestyle. We found this property with its many fruit trees on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and decided to settle. As we did not want to use chemical sprays on our fruit, we discovered that our products did not meet with market requirements. For a four person family, we had too much fruit, so we needed to ‘convert’ it into something which would make this small property productive. ‘Fermentation for the purpose of distillation’ was the goal – and so the small pot still was born!!



This is a family business where Sonya & Alex pitch in with Mum and Dad where picking fruit, mulching trees, mashing worts, cranking up the still, bottling and blending are parts of daily life for this family.
