We’ll start our day in the Adelaida District where we’ll visit the first distillery in the area, Re:Find Distillery.

Next we’ll head over to the hip Bethel Rd Distillery, which is focused on producing delicious spirits from from their estate grown organically farmed grapes. Here they produce smooth Grappas, Gin and a two-year barrel aged Brandy that is both rich and complex, amongst other tasty treats!

Sip through their tasting spirits while their distiller, Max Udsen, talks about their still and production methods.

Finish the experience seated outside in their VIP area enjoying wine country views while eating a gourmet lunch and listening to live music by local artist, Chris Beland.

Afterwards, we’ll finish he day in lively Tin City at Tin City & Wine Shine Distilleries, where you’ll enjoy live music and taste through a selection of 15 different products – including brandy, vodka, gin, rum, whiskey and more! – or you can choose to enjoy one of their delicious craft cocktails instead.
