Perth Hills Kalamunda is home to some of the finest distilleries in Western Australia, and we’re not just talking about any old run-of-the-mill spirits. We’re talking about distilleries that stand out from the crowd.
First up, we have HHH Spirits, whose gins are like taking a walk through the Aussie bush. With a range of hand-selected botanicals, each gin boasts a smooth, earthy flavour that will tantalize your taste buds. From neat to mixed or in a cocktail, HHH Spirits’ range of gins is inspired by Australia’s rugged landscape and unique flora, making every sip a genuinely unique experience.
Next on the list is The Packing Shed Distilling Co, located in the heart of the Bickley Valley. Not only is it a distillery, but it’s also a winery and restaurant set on 10 acres of picturesque land. Their exceptional spirits have won several awards, including Best Alternative Spirit for their Limoncello at the 2022 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards. Their Garden Party Floral Gin and Lawnbrook Citrus Gin have also received accolades for their unique flavour profiles. Sipping on one of their cocktails while enjoying the beautiful surroundings is a must-do experience.
If you’re looking for a distillery offering a truly local experience, look no further than the new kid on the block, Carmel Distillery. Their coffee vodka made with locally roasted beans is a standout, and their Hills Dry Gin is a citrusy delight with warm notes of cassia and coriander. But it’s their Limoncello that’s the star of the show, made with more locally grown lemons than you could possibly imagine. This small-batch artisan distillery creates magic in a bottle, giving you an authentic taste of the region.
And last but certainly not least, we have Carmel Cider Co, who recently won Best Intensified / Distilled Cider or Perry at the 2022 Australian Cider Awards for their Apple Brandy. Pop into their cellar door to grab a bottle but don’t just stop at the brandy; their locally-grown apple ciders are also exceptional. Trust us when we say you won’t be disappointed.
So, whether you’re a gin lover, a vodka enthusiast, or looking for a unique local Limoncello experience, be sure to visit HHH Spirits, The Packing Shed Distilling Co, Carmel Distillery, and Carmel Cider Co in the Bickley Valley, Pickering Brook, and Carmel region in Perth Hills Kalamunda.
