• Flipchart and whiteboard

The Whisky Garden is a sectioned space within the main bar, so is flexible to your guest numbers. Bushles of green contrast the stripped back walls of a 20th century warehouse in this industrial, new age take on the classic beer garden. A roller door allows patrons to adapt the space to their event’s needs any time of year.


Sitting beside a fully operational production floor, the distillery’s bar and event space is industrial in style and contemporary in flavour. Our distillery prides itself on being as modern as the spirit it produces and the city it calls home.
