Situated right in the heart of the Australian high country between Jindabyne and Thredbo, Wildbrumby is the highest distillery in Australia.
Located only 22km from Australia’s highest peak, the distillery has access to pristine alpine water, organically grown fruit and native mountain botanicals, which have become the inspiration behind its award-winning stable of schnapps, gin and vodka.
The distillery’s signature spirit is a sumptuous range of fruit-based schnapps based on local and seasonal produce.
Although schnapps distilleries are native to the European Alps, where the winters are too cold for traditional wine production, Wildbrumby founders, Brad and Monika Spalding have reinvented and popularised this traditional mountain spirit in the Australian Snowies.
Wildbrumby has applied years of distilling experience to its unique range of Australian gins and they now have three award winning products within their stable.
This includes their classic gin, the popular raspberry infused Rubus Patch, and navy-strength Stallion gin, which have all won gold medals in international spirit competitions. A pure, mountain vodka is also distilled on site.
All distillery visitors are offered a free tasting experience and can either purchase bottles onsite or from the distillery’s online shop.
