We will collect you and your group from your chosen location in our comfortable and COVID-safe minibus. Relax in air-conditioned luxury and take in the stunning scenery of the Sunshine Coast as we drive you to your first stop. Choose two of the region’s finest gin distilleries for your morning tastings: Beachtree Distillery, Sunshine & Sons, or Steampunk Distillery.
We will arrive at our first location mid-morning, where you can begin your day by tasting exquisite gins along with a talk. From here, it’s back to the bus and onwards to our next distillery. We will arrive here by midday, in time to enjoy a mouth-watering pre-lunch gin tasting and talk.
Next, it’s back to the bus for more magnificent scenery as we meander along the Sunshine Coast to conveniently arrive at our next stop just in time for lunch. Tuck into a delicious 1-course al-la-carte lunch at either Copperhead Brewery, Mr Jones and Me or Cafe VinCino.
Located in the hinterland town of Cooroy, Copperhead Restaurant Brewery offers quality food along with a dynamic range of beers and an extensive wine list. Alternatively, a local favourite Café VinCino on the Noosa Marina offers views over the Noosa River or Mr Jones and Me which is a locally owned restaurant tucked away from the river in Noosaville.
Once you’ve had plenty of time to enjoy your food and stretch your legs we will spend the afternoon at one more distillery, Fortune Distillery – Land & Sea Brewery for more gin tasting. Enjoy sampling various gins until 4:30 when we will make our way back to your drop-off location.

Your Distillery Door Day Tour begins in the morning when our friendly and experienced driver will welcome you aboard our comfy, COVID-safe minibus. Fasten your seatbelt and select the perfect soundtrack for your day, and it’s off to your first stop where you will arrive mid-morning. After spending an hour at our first venue we will hop back onto the minibus where you can soak up the breath-taking beauty of the area as we head to our second distillery, arriving at midday. Select two of the following three distilleries for your morning tastings.
Located in Caloundra, Beachtree Distillery is home to small-batch, handcrafted artisan spirits created using aromatic native botanicals, designed to take you on a journey across great Australian landscapes. Founded in 2020, Beachtree is already making waves across the Sunshine Coast with mouth-watering spirits and sustainable, ethical practices, from the organic sugarcane used in the based spirit, to the waste-free distillation process. Here you can enjoy a gin tasting and talk.
This exquisite distillery is the brainchild of four lifelong friends who decided to combine their love of the Sunshine Coast with their experience in and adoration for beautifully handcrafted spirits. Their specialities include a range of magnificent vodkas and gins, as well as a Sunshine Coast cane spirit. You and your group will be welcomed in for a talk and tasting of their finest gins.
Late morning, we will hop back onto the minibus where you can soak up the breath-taking beauty of the hinterland as we make the 30-minute trip to Cooroy, a charming and quirky town nestled close to the foot of Mt Cooroy, arriving just in time for some pre-lunch gin tasting. Popular for its alternative lifestyle, it’s no wonder that the Cooroy community is also a centre for artists, organic produce and also home to Cooroy Mountain Spring Water, a vital ingredient in the 20 20 Distillery range of spirits.
*Steampunk maximum group size approx. 6 adults only
Alternatively, opt to enjoy a gin tasting and talk at Steampunk Distillery, located in the charming hinterland. Take in the beautiful scenery as you sample the magnificent products of this home-based business run by two nurses. Many of the botanicals utilised in the small-batch, handcrafted spirits are homegrown or locally sourced, and the results are spectacular.
By now you’ll have worked up an appetite from all of the gin tasting and relaxing, and need a nice sit-down, something to nibble on, and maybe a drop more gin. Well, you’re in luck. Choose from two of the finest eateries on the Sunshine Coast: Copperhead Restaurant Brewery or Pier 11 Noosa Marina.
Copperhead Brewery is part of the new wave of Brew Pubs – a brewery with a real focus on quality food and beer made for consumption on premises only. Here you can tuck into a 1-course a-la-carte lunch with full restaurant service along with their dynamic range of regular or experimental beers, or something lovely from the extensive wine list or fully stocked bar.
A local favourite Café VinCino on the Noosa Marina offers views over the Noosa River, quality food, great service, beer and wine, The Cat’s Pyjamas coffee and free Wi-Fi. At Café VinCino you’ll enjoy river breezes, water views and our welcoming service. Dishes are created using fresh locally sourced produce and our house-baked goodies are a treat for the taste buds.
Mr Jones & Me Restaurant is a long-time favourite of locals, tucked away from the river in Noosaville. Its casual yet sophisticated design creates a modern & alluring space to relax in day or night.
The menu is designed around classic bistro food served with a modern twist. Whether for share plates, burgers, salads or high-end bistro classics, there’s something for you.
After taking a leisurely hour for lunch we’ll chivvy you back into the minibus for the scenic drive to our afternoon venue Fortune Distillery.
Renowned for its craft beer, the Fortune is the brewery’s little secret. The Fortune team uses local ingredients to produce a range of fine spirits – vodka and a white malt as well as medal-winning gins and rum – and Head Distiller Jack and his team will welcome you to chat about all things gin. And, of course, your visit wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to taste the Fortune Distillery’s finest. If you feel like you’ve had your fill of gin for the day (although we’re not sure that’s even possible!), you might opt instead for a tasting paddle of the brewery’s finest beers.
You will enjoy an hour with the Fortune team, at which point we will hop back onto the bus one last time and head back to your chosen drop-off location.
