Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery Tours

Evening

A little bit about Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery.

Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery is the Gold Coast’s first and only craft Gin, Vodka, Whiskey and Liqueur distillery located just two minutes walk from the North Burleigh beach. Handcrafting small batch spirits in memory of their great Granddad Jack, each of their spirits is carefully distilled, bottled, labelled and waxed by their family distilleries.

In 2021, they opened their second Queensland distillery located in the backstreets of Albion, Brisbane.

The team at Granddad Jack’s have humbly won over 60 international and national prestigious awards for their spirits since opening in August 2018, and they invite you to join them on a tour or visit the Tasting Room to try for yourself.

Production is on full show to visitors from the Tasting Room, and tours are available over the weekend. They also host a very intimate distillery experience each week where you can make your own bottle of gin and enjoy an evening with their Head Distiller.

At both locations, they’re family-friendly, dog-friendly, and within walking distance of some amazing local breweries and eateries, so you can make a day of it when you visit.

We’re a family-friendly neighbourhood distillery in the backstreets of the industrial Albion community. Just a few minutes walk from other local breweries, cafes and restaurants, you can quickly see why we’ve been landmarked as a ‘must-see’ destination with QLD Tourism. Come and see for yourself.
