Starward Distillery & Bar
Specialty Bars

50 Bertie St, Port Melbourne , 3207

Starward’s distillery is an immersive backdrop for an unforgettable event. Convenient and unique, it’s one of the largest urban working distilleries in the world.

As you’re welcomed through the 1927 warehouse entrance, you’ll notice malty-sweet aromas first. The scent of toasted oaky anise and juicy red berries drift through the air and the sensory games begin. Only then are you struck by the details of the space. Like bright, lofty ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors, industrial signage and weathered red wine barrels towering far into the distance.

They create award-winning whisky right here, beside a fully-stocked bar. It’s modern and beautiful. And it reflects Melbourne’s unfussy attitude in an authentic way.

Starward Distillery & Bar is available for private functions and venue hire
