A little bit about Granddad Jack's Craft Distillery...
Built with up-cycled materials, this old surfboard warehouse has been converted to expose a raw and rustic, one-of-a-kind distillery. David & Luke Ridden are recreating age-old family recipes in memory of David's grandfather and Luke's great-grandfather, Granddad Jack. Each of our award-winning spirits is handcrafted, made from locally or nationally sourced raw materials and still hand waxed! Production is on full-show to visitors from the Tasting Room and when inside you can smell the aromas of the botanicals and whiskey as it seeps through the oak barrels surrounding you.
We're a family-friendly neighbourhood distillery in the backstreets of Burleigh and have helped to build the epic craft culture the Gold Coast is renowned for. Just a short 2minute walk to the beach and surrounded by breweries, cafes and restaurants (and great people) you can quickly see why we've been landmarked as a 'must-see' destination on the Gold Coast. Come and see for yourself.
Please note, if you wish to stay after the tour (recommended) you will need to book a table also.
