Chiefs Son Distillery

Breweries and Distilleries

Stuart and Naomi McIntosh established Chief’s Son Distillery in 2013, and after three years of testbed success, they distilled their first commercial batch of single malt whisky in this Somerville location.

Known for its big, bold and unique styles of award-winning single malt whisky, and recently introducing Single Malt Vodka to the range. Chief’s Son is one of the largest family-owned and operated distilleries in Australia and the only whisky distillery on the Mornington Peninsula.

All whisky tastings are tailored to people’s knowledge and level of interest; they explain how their whiskies are crafted and where they source the ingredients and barrels. They also cover the distilling process from malt to maturation, all with a panoramic view of the working distillery floor.

You can also book a guided tour of the distillery floor, where you’ll taste whisky direct from the barrel and take home a 100ml sample. Add a perfectly paired cheese platter if you’d prefer. The distillery floor is bursting with the complex and distinctive aromas of ageing whisky.

Chief’s Son Distillery exemplifies the spirit of connection through whisky and helps to forge deeper connections between people, families and generations. Experience the connection yourself with the Chief’s Son team.
