Bass & Flinders Distillery
Mornington Peninsula's grape-based spirits, liquor and brandy go-to.
August 25, 2020
If you're going to start a distillery in one of Victoria's celebrated wine regions, you need to take a creative approach. So, that's what Bass & Flinders Distillery did. Located on the Mornington Peninsula, it's all about vine-to-bottle spirits, which are exactly what they sound like.
When you're sipping Bass & Flinders' brandy, you're sipping a spirit distilled down from chardonnay. If you opt for its gin, you're also tasting a drop made from shiraz. Unsurprisingly, this technique sets the brand's range apart in terms of flavour and texture as well. Also a heavy influence: the region's fresh produce, including its apple orchards, truffles and cherries, as well as native ingredients from the Aussie outback
Bass & Flinders operates a distillery door, serving up its grape-based spirits, liquors and brandy seven days a week — and also offers onsite gin and brandy masterclasses.
