Sharing the story of

GRANDDAD JACK

Founded by the father and son team, David & Luke Ridden, Granddad Jack's Craft Distillery came about from a trip to the USA. The pair discovered and enjoyed community-centric bars that cultivated a sense of community, uniqueness and belonging. With a passion for craft spirits, the trip cemented the idea of launching a neighbourhood-based distillery in honour of their grandfather, Granddad Jack, a man known for his resilience, loyal friendship, integrity, and hard work.

Granddad Jacks Craft Distillery is inspired by his story and driven by the same old-fashioned values and ethos he went through life with.

With two established Queensland distilleries & international expansion into New Zealand, Singapore, Norway, Fiji, Japan, China and North America, our Australian handcrafted spirits are being enjoyed around the world.
