Meet the Maker & the Master


12.30pm – 1.30pm


Buy Tickets

S nowgum Distillery is a boutique distillery based in Melbourne’s North, which creates small volume, high quality gins based on natural Australian botanicals. We started our business in January 2020, however we have already made an impact by winning four international medals and six Australian gin awards!

When you attend our masterclass you will sample our award winning gins. You will hear from our master distiller (Jurgen) who will give you insights into the production of our unique, modern gin range (including the reason for the amazing colour change of our Blue Tongue Gin and our newly released Rose Gin). Jurgen has qualified as a Master Distiller in Germany (one of very few Master Distillers in Australia) and will introduce you to the origin of Snowgum’s gin recipes and describe the production technique and ‘hands on’ philosophy of the business.

Your masterclass ticket includes light snack prepared by our catering partner, as well as general entry into the 12.00pm – 3.00pm tasting session. One lucky attendee will go home with a gin prize at the end of the class!

Nosferatu Masterclass.

Don’t be frightened – be inspired by the spirit of innovation!

B orn out of a love of Pimms, Campari and Gin, Nosferatu Distillery came into being in May 2018 in a dusty old South Melbourne cellar. Laced with inspiration from film, art, literature, folklore, and culture, the Nosferatu Distillery’s gin series celebrates the spirit of innovation and labour to distill the finest gin possible. One can note that fine inspiration is not just embodied in our gin but also reflected in our packaging. In 2018, our Nosferatu Blood Orange Gin won the prize for the “Best Gin Bottle in Australia” at the Australian Gin Awards and went on to make its unique mark amongst boutique distilleries by mastering both the Australian botanicals and design elements.

When you attend our masterclass, you will sample our cult classic gins and hear from our founder Rory, who will give you insights into gin and food matching, modern classic gin, design and labelling, and the business’s ‘hands on’ philosophy. Moreover, you’ll be leaving our masterclass with the skills to blow your friends away at your next dinner party.

Gin and food samples included.
