Although Michael and Alla Ward’s Distillery has only been open a short time, (July 1998) they have already established a very enviable reputation as creators of high quality Liqueurs.

This reputation, largely developed by word of mouth, has seen people coming not only from all Australian states but Europe and Asia as well. The Wards have received nationwide coverage in the print media and national and international television coverage.

International Wine and Spirit Competition Director Frances Horder says that “winning an award at the IWSC is tougher than most competitions as we not only operate the ‘Olympic’ principle but also analyse all our winners.A set of technical controls and analyses is implemented in order to ensure that the highest quality standards are achieved and maintained year after year. It is therefore a great compliment to all involved in the creation of the product.”
