Gin lovers rejoice! Adelaide’s newest distillery has opened right in time for the summer season.
The list of local distillery’s is getting longer and longer and here at Glam we honestly couldn’t be more excited to welcome Ambleside Distillers to the scene.
These guys snuck onto the scene last weekend, finally taking the “distillery opening soon” sign off their fence and throwing open their Handorf cellar doors.
Trudy, Steve, Matt and their beloved “Doug” (the very impressive 150L gin still) found their inspiration while Matt was witnessing the revival of our favourite liquor from it’s home, London.
Ambleside Distillers have burst onto the scene with 3 sensational batches of gin each showcasing Trudy, Steve and Matt’s individual tastes.
The No 8 Botanical showcases lighter citrus undertones, wile Big Dry provides a huge hit of flavour for those of us who just can’t get enough punch in our gin, and Small Acre which is focused on the use of local Adelaide Hills ingredients.
Ambleside has us covered on all fronts as well, not only fulfilling more of our South Australian gin needs, but also matching garnishes and dehydrated fruit, ensuring our party needs!
Located at the entrance of historic Handorf, the Ambleside Distillers cellar door is the prefect stop on your way into, or out of the. Of course, we might be found making specific trips up the freeway for a few gift packs and some ready-made garnish.
You can get your understandably excited hands on an Ambleside drop on their website or at their cellar door on the corner of Ambleside and Mt Barker Road in Handorf (on the left as you drive into Handorf).
