Distillery & Brewery Experience
Check out two of Byron Bay’s fastest growing, independent and sustainable businesses Cape Byron Distillery and the Stone & Wood Brewery.
A short drive into Byron’s hinterland is the heritage township of “Bangalow”, take in the sights and sounds of this historic village and check out the cafe’s, boutique shops, or local watering hole The Bangalow Hotel. Guides Tip: “I’d get some grub in Bangalow before moving on to the Distillery”.
At the Cape Byron Distillery you will get to try the Gold Medal winning “Brookie’s Gin” made from home grown and locally foraged botanicals. Then you will be brought on a guided tour of the Brooks’ family farm to explore the rainforest in search of native species used to create this fragrant gin. To finish off we will retreat back to the cellar doors to learn about the final process with a gin masterclass from one of the talented distillers.
Small snacks provided on third leg.
Next stop is the award winning independent brewery “Stone & Wood”. Moving from aromatic gins to uniquely crafted beers , Stone & Wood’s “Pacific ale” is the taste of Byron Shire. Guides Tip: “you haven’t arrived in Byron until you have had a Pacific”. These guys are the definition of independant craft brewing and on this guided tasting you will get to try up to seven styles of masterfully brewed local drop.
