Beenleigh Artisan Distillery
The Beenleigh Artisan Distillery underwent a $5 million facelift in 2016 and emerged as a great spot to pay a visit. Beenleigh Rum has been popping up in Brisbane bars with greater frequency, becoming one of the more popular local spirits in the region. The distillery itself is a great hub of local culture, with distillery tours every Wednesday through to Sunday. Sign up for a distillery tour and glean some insight into the complex small-batch copper distillery process, walk amongst century-old barrels and inhale the ‘angel’s share’ – the spirit that evaporates during ageing. After you’ve seen how it all works, have a taste of the end product at the industrial-chic visitors centre and taste the vanilla, honey and oak flavours or try a specialty cocktail. Every so often Beenleigh Artisan Distillery events from food truck gatherings to outdoor movie screenings.
