Ambleside Distillers

Handcrafting spirits in Hahndorf.

Ambleside Distillers clearly likes its gin, with multiple types in its range. Fancy a dry and peppery version? A small-acre drop with tastes of rhubarb, bay leaf, apple and cloves? One distilled with native botanicals from South Australia's Monarto Safari Park? Along with its zesty signature No 8 Botanical Gin, they're all on the menu.

The focus here is on uncomplicated but innovative spirits — and using conventional single-run vapour-infused distilling methods, but never treating the process of making spirits as a conventional task. Ingredients-wise, Ambleside benefits from its location, with its tasting bar, distillery and garden in Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills.

Head by to sip your way through its range — and see its copper still — with Ambleside's bar open from Thursday–Monday.
