Industrial bar opens at New Gisborne

Liam, Oscar and Michael welcome patrons to Mountain Distilling's new industrial bar and tasting room.

A new sensory experience awaits at Mountain Distilling’s industrial bar and tasting room at New Gisborne.

The trendy industrial bar opened in January to showcase Mountain Distilling’s multi-award winning spirits.

“Previously, the factory/distillery was only for production, but we have been testing the waters for a couple of months doing cocktails and tastings at the front of the venue,” Mountain Distilling’s Michael Harris said.

“We’ve been at the factory for about two years and thinking of new ways for people to experience our products.”

The locally crafted spirits are showcased in impressive cocktail and tasting flights. Patrons can also select their favourites from the menu.

Original four-time gold winning Mountain Gin is among the most popular, closely followed by the Redgum Single Malt whiskey, which is created through Mountain Distilling’s own rapid maturation technology.

Mountain Distilling collaborated with musicians to create the Lapa Lux Oblivion Gin and Rubens Gin.

Other favourites are the Mountain Vodka, Abominable Snow Gin, Agave Blanco and Barrel-Aged Gin.

The industrial bar and tasting room is located at 2 Meek Street, New Gisborne. It is open Friday from 4pm to 9pm, Saturday from noon to 9pm and Sunday from noon to 7pm.
