Granddad Jack’s Craft Distillery

Breweries and Distilleries

The Gold Coast’s first Craft Distillery is located just two minute walk from the North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club.

Built with up-cycled materials, this old surfboard warehouse has been converted to expose a raw and rustic, one-of-a-kind distillery.

David and Luke Ridden are recreating age-old family recipes in memory of David’s Grandfather and Luke’s Great Grandfather, Granddad Jack.

Each of their award-winning spirits is handcrafted and made from locally or nationally sourced raw materials. Production is on full show to visitors from their Tasting Room and distillery tours & tastings are available over the weekend. You can even make your own gin during their weekly distillery experience. Book online through their website.

Each gin is available by the bottle or can be enjoyed in one of their exclusive tasting room cocktails. Their whiskey continues to age in the barrel room, although they have released limited batches of their Bourbon, Peated and Single Malt whiskey over the years.

When inside, you can smell the aromas of the botanicals and the whiskey as it seeps through the American Oak barrels surrounding you.

A must-see Gold Coast Destination.

Covid-19 update: They are following strict guidelines in their distillery to ensure the health and safety of both you and their staff during this time. Please check out their website for the most current information about booking times.
