Established on the Central Coast in 2005, Distillery Botanica has become a mecca for locals and tourists seeking flavour… and a cheeky gin.
There’s two and a half acres of beautiful gardens to wander through at Distillery Botanica, making it the perfect place to spend a spring afternoon. Flowers, herbs and a working garden producing Mandarins, Lemon Grass, Kaffir Lime, Curry Leafs, Ginger, Turmeric and Galangal Root just to name a few.
A spot of lunch
This garden to table cafe located in the lush green grounds Distillery Botanica is worth the trip alone. It’s called Bar Botanica, and is open from Wednesday to Sunday 10am till 4pm coffee, elevenses & gelato.
We dare you to try and stop at one!
A visit to Distillery Botanica isn’t complete without picking up a bottle of this liquid gold. The Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur was a gold medal winner at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London, and for good reason… It’s absolutely delicious.
Hang out with your best mate
Apparently it’s well documented that gin lovers are often dog people too. And the good people at Distillery Botanica embrace this, and welcome your best mate to join you on your next visit.
Did we mention these folks make some of the best gin we’ve ever tasted? Well they do and you gotta try some… Of course. Philip Moore, the owner of Distillery Botanica, uses a one-thousand-year-old technique known as ‘enfleurage’ to produce the Distillery’s gin. The process involves flowers and botanicals laid out onto a layer of solidified coconut oil. Over a few days, the fragrance from the flowers and botanicals is diffused into the oil, releasing their perfumes in their purest possible form.
As we said, you’ve got to try it!
