Cheers to you and your one-year anniversary, we appreciate you.  “For my staff release, I wanted to create something we haven’t done at Granddad Jack’s before, inspired by my favourite spirit - tequila. I’ll keep it short and sweet (unlike myself), there’s no deep and meaningful story behind this one. This Agave Spirit marks the milestone of not being fired after one year – let’s cheers to that!” - Kate Lawler - Group Administration Manager We hope you enjoy this release as much as we loved making it.  ABV: 40% Tasting Notes: Overall, a smooth, slightly spiced and earthy character agave spirit.Nose: Citrus, leathery, herbal and hints of olives Palate: Exotic spices, anise, tobacco and dark chocolate Ingredients: Blue Agave Tequilana Syrup Production: Kate's It’s Not Tequila is a unique and refined spirit crafted from organic Blue Agave Tequilana syrup from Jalisco, Mexico.

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.
