Bakery Hill Distillery

An established distillery in the outer suburbs doing a killer single malt.

These cats are the oldest and most established single malt distillery in Australia (well, as well as the mainland's concerned). Its drops are so good they've been exported from their central highlands base in Ballarat to France, Germany, Sweden and the UK.

But unfortunately (for those overseas, that is), local demand has meant exports have been reduced to supply only the local market. And what lucky ducks we are. Our current favourite is the peated malt whisky: complex tobacco smokiness intermingles with toffee and honeycomb. A definite gold rush from beginning to end.

If you want to visit the North Bayswater distillery, you'll have to book a tour. At the moment, they run every second Saturday and cost $55, which includes a tasting at the end.
