Wolf Lane Distillery

Founded in 2019, this Cairns distillery has been making a splash.

Perched way up north in the state's far reaches, Cairns is known for many things, such as its beaches, sultry weather, close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and the nearby Daintree National Park. Among fans of spirits, at least, it should also be known for Wolf Lane and its Tropical Gin. The former was only founded in 2019, but it has been making a splash in the past year thanks to the latter.

Like botanicals? If you like gin, then of course you do — and this one features 13, including coriander seed, cardamom, finger lime, lavender and mint. It's recommended for summer, but every Queenslander knows that the weather is always sunny and summery (and perfect for gin) in this neck of the woods.

For anyone making the trip north, Wolf Lane's Abbott Street distillery also doubles as a bar and cellar door. Contact them in advance to arrange a tour, which are available daily. You can also just drop by for a few drinks on Friday and Saturday afternoons from 4pm — the bar doesn't take bookings.
