Mostly, we make Gin. An idea that was born from an aversion to getting up and driving to work in the morning and an appreciation for the calming effects of a libation poured over ice in the evening time. And so, Hurdle Creek Still came to be on the family property in the King Valley in March 2016.
All of our products are made and bottled onsite in The StillHouse. Our triple distilled base spirit is made from locally sourced grain using a traditional infusion mashing system which gives our gin a unique grain character. The juniper and a select blend of local and native botanicals - some of which are grown in our garden – are vapour infused into the spirit ensuing light, subtle flavours throughout our gins.
Bobbie's patch juniper
We are very proud to announce the release of our first ever gin made from 100% Australian grain & botanicals.
The current batches of our Powder Monkey - Navy Strength Gin, showcases juniper berries from Bobbie's Patch, grown right here in North East Victoria.
Bobbie's Patch was established in 1997, nestled in a beautiful valley in NE Victoria. Slow maturing and through flood, fire and drought, some 22 years later they are producing a nice little crop. When we received the call from Tina and Leigh about the existence of Bobbie's Patch, it is needless to say that we were ecstatic!
TAKE A DRIVE
Come and visit The StillHouse about 6km down the road from Milawa in the King Valley. The building was originally a farm shed, transformed using reclaimed materials to house the distillery.
Visitors are welcome to watch the still in action, talk gin with the distiller and sample it all at the same time.
