Kelly's To Chai For Gin $95.00
Back in 2019, we launched the very first Make Your Own Gin night in the country, and we’ve been very lucky to welcome over 500 people to this monthly sold-out experience. When you book a spot at the gin-making night, not only do you get the entire distillery to yourself and only five other people, but you also get to make your very own 500ml bottle of gin. After choosing your own botanicals, distilling the spirit, labelling, and waxing the bottle, you get to take home and brag all about the gin you’ve just made (all while enjoying dinner, drinks, and a distillery tour with our Head Distiller). At the end of the evening, you leave a small sample with us to later enter a competition—a competition to make your gin on a bigger scale and have your very own Limited Release at Granddad Jack’s. We are very proud to announce that Kelly Black is the very first winner of our Make Your Own Gin nights competition, and out of over 500 samples, she took out the top spot to have her very own gin released. From the recipe to distillation, the design on the label and the cocktails you’ll enjoy, Kelly has been part of the entire process, bringing to life her very own story to share with you all. Introducing “To Chai For” Gin, a unique blend inspired by the desire to create a spirit that transcends seasons, this gin is born out of a passion for both the classic G&T vibes of summer and the cozy, fireside moments of winter. “As a seasoned gin enthusiast, I wanted to captivate even the most devoted bourbon lover—my husband, Scott. So, I embarked on a journey to create a gin that marries the richness of vanilla with classic juniper notes, providing a perfect companion for those cooler months spent around the fire. Drawing inspiration from cherished family traditions, “To Chai For” Gin is infused with the warmth of spices reminiscent of my Nan’s Ginger Fluff Sponge cake. The result is a harmonious blend of vanilla and spices, delivering a taste that’s not just a gin, but a flavourful experience. Growing up, my mum was an epic cook (and still is!). This has left me with spoilt tastebuds, fuelling my passion for experimenting with flavours in both food and drink. I'm a cake-baking and decorating enthusiast, drawn to making boundary-pushing, unconventional creations.” – Kelly Black, Winner of the Make Your Own Gin Night Award Embrace the seasons with a sip of this small-batch gin crafted from a genuine love for flavours and a commitment to creating memorable moments. Cheers to a gin that’s truly to Chai For! We hope you enjoy this release as much as we loved making it.  Stay tuned for next year's announcement and winner’s release.

Sharing the story of


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.

Single barrel


Granddad Jack loved whiskey and enjoyed one 'neat' every day. He believed that "all great spirits should be drunk neat", and we make sure all of our single-barrel whiskey releases meet those standards.
