THE WEST WINDS GIN company has won many trophies and gold medals including 2020 trophies for best flavoured gin at the Australian Gin Awards and also the World Gin Awards.

Their Master Distiller will excite your taste buds with a first time taste of their new varieties in this interesting and informative one hour class. A small serving of tapas is included along with a tote bag and a souvenir cocktail glass. Automatic entry into the Palooza follows the class.

Owner Paul White says: “We value this land and proudly source our local ingredients directly from growers. Some of our environmentally sustainable produce includes honey, bush tomatoes, Davidson plums, limes, lemons, coriander, sloe berries and sea parsley are just some examples of the environmentally sustainable botanicals we source from local suppliers”.

Saturday 20 November 4.30pm – 5.30 pm. Limited to 16 seats.


For a couple whose gin journey began as a competition with a friend to see who could make the best booze, Felix Clarke and Corinna Covner have come a long way. On a whim, they switched from bootlegging vodka to gin and it’s a good thing they did! Only months after officially launching in April, Sydney-based Ester Spirits are already winning some pretty hefty industry awards.

Sydney’s Ester Gin has taken out the title of the World’s Best Navy Gin at the World Gin Awards for their Ester Strong Gin. It’s the second award for the spirit, which took out Best in Category and Joint Best in Show along with Never Never at the Australian Gin Awards 2020.

Felix will run this out of left field class for those interested in hearing about and tasting their winning-streak gin.

A small serving of tapas is included along with a tote bag and a souvenir cocktail glass. Automatic entry into the Palooza follows the class.

Saturday 20 November 12pm – 1pm. Limited to 16 seats.


Your welcome Tom Collins gin cocktail will be the 2021 trophy-winning Three Cuts Gin the Distiller’s Release.

Come ready for a masterclass discussing different distillation techniques for modern craft gins.

Your host is Turner Stillhouse’s Founder and Distiller, Justin Turner – an American living and distilling in Tasmania. Justin married a Tasmanian from a multi-generational farming family and has cultivated an obsession with Tasmanian spirits and food ever since. He founded Turner Stillhouse to fuse the art of craft spirits and modern technology, and with the ambition to create consistently awesome spirits – each and every time.

Justin will talk to you about different types of gin distillation techniques: The Steep Method and Vapor Infusion. He will also share with you his experience of which botanicals work well in modern, contemporary gins giving you hints for your own homemade cocktails.

2:00pm Sunday 1 May. $160 includes the class plus the following Palooza session and someone will win a bottle of the trophy gin.
