When it comes to day trips and weekend escapes from Brisbane, Tamborine Mountain is a popular choice, and with good reason. Even though this lush destination is only an hour south of the city, it has that charming country town feel, home to an array of attractions — everything from waterfalls and hiking trails to wineries and lookouts. Another must-do to add to the Tambo list is a visit to Cauldron Distillery.
Set on a scenic eighteen-acre vineyard, Cauldron Distillery is the perfect spot for a gin cocktail amongst the greenery. Taste your way to your next favourite tipple, pair it with a bite to eat, and let live music soundtrack your weekend afternoon.
Now, it might be hard to choose a gin to try, especially with varieties like Christmas Gin (infused with orange ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves), the colour-changing True Blue Gin as well as the Five-To-Five Gin ranges. So why not opt for a gin paddle so you can try more than one?
The drinks menu is also brimming with vibrant cocktails, limited releases such as the limoncello and coffee liqueur (which we’ve heard is delicious!), plus local wines and craft beers.
During the week, you can enjoy a gourmet cheeseboard with your bevvies. But on weekends, Cauldron extends their offering to nachos, burgers, skewers, and even gin-cured salmon croquettes.
If you’ve ever wanted to distil your own gin, you can here at the distillery with Cauldron’s gin making classes every Saturday.
