The Adelaide Hills in South Australia is home to some of Australia’s most revered farms, orchards and gourmet producers, with its celebrated cool climate providing perfect conditions for growers and farmers alike. From this enviable landscape, we take the inspiration for Adelaide Hills Distillery. To use only the highest quality produce, sourced both locally and from other premium regions both interstate and around the world. To make use of the premium water available in our backyard. And to make this commitment to quality our driving philosophy.
Our homeland of South Australia is known for red wine and our preference is for old vine Grenache that emanates from the depths of McLaren Vale. Casting characteristics of raspberry and blueberry with nuances of spice, chocolate and tobacco, this is the perfect foundation to craft our Rosso Vermouth.A generous handful of our imported traditional blend of 36 Torino roots, herbs and spices, that have been stored since the 1960s, add vanilla, spice and a rounded herbal tone. We add our signature Australian touch with a late addition of anise myrtle and quandong, then utilise the citrus characteristics of sunrise lime and finger lime to cut through the unctuous nature of the Grenache.
