History of the Hunter Valley Distillery

The Distillery originally started life producing a limited edition line of premium organic vodkas. It saw success very quickly after it began selling its award-winning Valli Vodka collection which went on to win the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and came second in the London International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Since then, it has remained a stalwart part of the valley and has employed a dedicated team of distillers who continue to create unique, delicious flavours from organic ingredients from around the Hunter Valley and the surrounding regions.

While on site, you can tuck into seasonal meals at the restaurant and enjoy the stunning views across the Hunter Valley from numerous vantage points. If you’re a culture-vulture with a soft spot for spirits, this is definitely the place to go – especially if you’re looking to take a break from the numerous wineries in the region.

Perhaps the most unique thing about the Distillery is that visitors have the chance to create their own spirit.

You can choose from a range of vodkas, schnapps, and liqueurs to start you off, while the experienced and knowledgeable team works with you to create a flavour that suits the occasion and your taste buds.
