WELCOME TO YACK CREEK DISTILLERY
Yack Creek Distillery was established in 2016 after 2 friends discussed business opportunities while sitting on a beach in Western Australia.
Both had a passion for whisky and rum and decided to explore the possibilities of how they could make their own.
This idea became a hobby but soon developed into a business decision and thus an ambitious dream of creating a micro distillery.
This list has since expanded to include vodka & gin which complement the product line.
Jamie – Head Distiller undertook a course in malting & brewing to refine his skills and experiment with different types of grain, molasses and barrels to create a product that he is now ready to release to the public.
Yack Creek Distillery is situated 2 kilometers out of the township of Yackandandah on acreage with the Creek to the east and the Stanley State forest to the south.
The creek flows all year round and includes brown trout and the Murray Spiny Crayfish. Hence the logo was born from the Crayfish head.
The distillery uses a 1000 litre Copper & glass tower still with stainless columns and a 130 litre stainless & cooper modular high column still.
The 2 stills allow flexibility to manufacture different products and enable experimentation.
All neutral spirits are created on premise from Australian sourced grain and molasses and our young orchard will eventually assist in supplying our flavours.
The Yack Creek water is soft water derived from the Stanley forest hills.
The aim is to keep the distillery a micro business that will produce small batches for release throughout the year.
We hope you enjoy our first limited batch releases
