Activity Overview
Discover the art of gin making and gin appreciation in a fun-filled day. Visit 4 boutique distilleries with an opportunity to meet the master distiller tasting their award-winning gins. Discover the botanicals that make up the classical gins with a hands-on tasting experience. The all-day tour includes a delicious gin-inspired lunch with a gin cocktail paired to the food. Explore the Margaret River Region from the comfort of a small group mini-bus with expert commentary while visiting each distillery. Have a fun day discovering what makes the region so great for wines, beers and of course spirits. You can also taste some of the other spirits made by the boutique Margaret River distilleries if you wish. Each distillery charges for other spirit tastings but the gin tasting is included in the tour. There is whisky, bourbon, rum, brandy, grappa, pisco and many more fabulous spirits and liqueurs. With a wonderful group of like-minded people, you will have a fabulous day so book now!

The all-day tour starts at 10:00 AM from the carpark of the Margaret River Bed and Breakfast, then picking up other passengers from their accommodation in the Margaret River area (charges apply for pick-ups more than 10 minutes from Margaret River). We then visit two distilleries with plenty of time for tastings and questions before returning to the Margaret River B&B for a gin cocktail and a delicious gin-inspired lunch (are we fanatical about gin or what? :).

After lunch, we will visit two more distilleries then finishing off the tour with stops for chocolate and cheese tastings, returning about 4:30 to 5:00 PM to your accommodation and ending up at the Margaret River BnB.

AWESOME ADD-ON OPTIONS

LUNCH
Our Family Fun Day Tour lunch package has two options depending what you think your group would prefer.

For a relaxed, welcoming chilled setting on the farm, we recommend this option.

The Beer Farm- We have teamed up with these legends and are very happy about it, being the first of its kind the great minds have come together with the BBQ TOUR FEED, a lunch full of Beerfarm Beef, Banter and Beer. For $30pp you get to enjoy some of the Beerfarms very own ‘Against the grain beef’. These bad boys are grazing the pastures surrounding the farm. You can expect a range of BBQ goodies with salads, a fresh cut of steak and a pint or paddle for good measure. A great way to eat with friends.

For a crew after some finer dining and more of an estate feel, this won’t disappoint.

Caves Road Collective- Formally known as Black Brewing Co and still the home of the beer their new name really represents all the goodness on offer and the $20pp tour menu is to die for. You’ll get to sit back with their table service and enjoy the view of this stunning estate while eating some of the yummiest dishes you can find in the region. With 5 options to choose from, very generous portions for food of this quality it will be a delightful lunch had by all. This place has it all for a Lunch stop on the tour, not only will you enjoy the lunch, along with the beer they also provide wine and gin tastings and some great cocktails. For a fancier option with friends this is for you.

DRINKS

FLIGHTS & FRIENDS
What is a flight of wine? Basically a beer paddle of wine. To be more precise this is a range of wines all made with something similar in hand, being it a style of wine or grapes from a certain region. With this idea we will change the old conventional tastings into a fun and social experience for the wine drinker of the 21st century. This is ideal for larger groups of friends wanting to enjoy wine in a more relaxed setting. Some great wineries have jumped on board and also offering some great nibbles to get you through the day or a few BITES if you feel inclined.

FLIGHTS & BITES- $15PP

DISTILLERY DELIGHTS 

The Grove Distillery is something we love to offer our punters, the tasting is $10pp! There is plenty on offer but we would most likely recommend the liqueur tasting as it’s a great little change for the day. We would also recommended jumping on our Exclusive Double Deal as this fits into most days a little better.

General Tasting- You get to choose 1 from the 3.

Liqueur Tasting- 3 seriously yummy mini cocktails made up by their Liqueurs which never disappoint.

Beer Paddle- Want to stick to the beer train, a great stout and an array of nice to drink beers.

Spirit Tasting- Like the hard stuff? These guys have pulled in awards for a range of their spirits light and dark all over the world. If you can handle it, jump on board.

We will sort out on the day who’s who in the zoo but book away for a something different on your day out.

(Subject to availability)

Double distillery delight
We have teamed up with the crew to give you a double deal! This is mainly due to the times available at the grove. There is only 1 time slot in the afternoon available at 3:15pm, we usually finish lunch at 230ish not really leaving enough for a brewery or winery tasting. This way there is less rushing around, driving and more drinking time for you. We head on in after lunch and grab one of these drinks before hitting the general tasting.

Cocktails- Dark & Stormy or Pirate Punch

Beer- Tasting Paddle or Pint

Spirits- 2x 15ml taste or 1x 30 with mixer or 1 single malt (when avail)
