Meet our family

& the story behind granddad jacks's craft distillery

 Granddad Jack's Craft Distillery is the Gold Coast's first and only craft Gin, Vodka, Whiskey & Liqueur distillery located just two minutes walk from the North Burleigh beach. Recreating age-old family recipes in memory of our great Granddad Jack, each of our spirits are handcrafted in our Gold Coast distillery.

We have humbly won multiple prestigious awards since opening in August 2018 and invite you to join us on a tour or visit the Tasting Room to try for yourself.

Production is on full show to visitors from the Tasting Room and tours are available over the weekend. We also host a very intimate distillery experience each week where you can make your own bottle of gin and enjoy an evening with our Head Distiller.

We're family friendly and within walking distance of some amazing local breweries & eateries, so you can make a day of it when you visit.
