Cape Byron Distillery and Rainforest Tour (May - July 2020)
Brookie’s Byron Gin is produced at Cape Byron Distillery in the hinterland of Byron Bay.
We are only open for tours by appointment, so your experience is more personal. The distillery is set in the heart of the Brook family's macadamia farm surrounded by subtropical rainforest.
On arrival, you will be welcomed to the cellar door with a refreshing Brookie's Gin & Tonic. A guided tour through the subtropical rainforest is a magical experience; to smell, see and touch the botanicals that are used in the gin, learn the history of the Big Scrub Rainforest and fall in love with this special place. Once back in the distillery you will be lead through an in-depth tasting of our products… and no doubt a few special surprises! Enjoy a fun sensory experience guided by our cellar door team.
To finish, relax on the deck with a seasonally crafted cocktail overlooking Brookfarm, watch the birds and enjoy the view.
