Update from us
With reference to COVID-19 and rising concerns about its spread, Settlers Spirits, along with most Australians, are learning to understand and adopt the new and safe behaviors and measures being asked of us.
As a responsible business, and member of the community, we are following Government Directives whereby our Distillery Door is now closed for tastings and drinks. We have also postponed conducting any of our gin masterclasses.
To keep your spirits up and your home bars healthy, we have the below two fantastic options to get our gins to you!
Our on-line store is up and running and the Distillery Door will be open on weekends for over the counter bottle sales on Saturdays or Sundays between 2-5pm. We will also open on ANZAC Day for bottle sales for the same time.
So please do not hesitate to place an order or pop in and we will have our life-saving, sanity inducing, delicious and spirit-raising spirits out to you to keep you afloat!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and hope you are safe and well.
Developing Our Own, Australian Take on Gin
In developing our line of gins, we have become the local gin specialists. From our distillery in McLaren Vale, South Australia, Settlers Spirits are quickly becoming one of the premier, boutique craft gin distillers of Australia.
Visit our Distillery Door to taste and purchase our sloe gin, pink gin, yuzu gin and many other exciting flavours from our own distillery, or find them at your local bottleshop across the country, or even buy online. We have eleven varieties of flavoured gins and a range of Whisky, Rhum, Vodka and Liqueurs to choose from.
Gin Through the Ages
The original dry gin took the world by storm. This humble distillation of Juniper berries still manages to evoke memories of men with handlebar moustaches and women under parasols sipping gin in exotic locations around the world.
It was often mentioned fondly in stories by Rudyard Kipling, Ernest Hemingway and Somerset Maugham in settings as varied and romantic as India, Cairo, Cuba and Singapore.
Gin holds a significant place in the world today as well. The market for a fine, craft gin is steadily growing as an entire new-wave of adventurous mixologists discovers the joys of cocktails.
Martinis and Gin and Tonics are only the beginning. People old and young are re-discovering such classics as the Lime Rickey, the Singapore Sling, the Tom Collins and the Gimlet.
Leading the Australian Gin Market
As boutique gin distillers, we offer a masterclass at our distillery door on the subject of gin. After all, we are the local gin specialists. Join us and you can learn the history of this spirit as it was developed down through the centuries.
We will tell you the different distillation methods that led up to today’s version of the classic dry gin. We will also teach you how to judge a superior, craft gin from a mass-produced, inferior one.
Settlers Spirits distillery door offers gin tastings for individuals as well as private group tastings. We offer gin and cheese pairings as well. These events and our masterclass all take place in our distillery’s modern tasting room called The Distillery Door. It overlooks local vineyards with the Willunga Hills serving as a backdrop.
