Glen Gowrie Distillery

| The Company

David handcrafts small-batch gins and liqueurs on his farm, in the beautiful New England High Country town of Glen Innes.

David and his wife Susie entered the wine and liquor industry in the year 2000, in the small coastal town of Bellingen, where they produced wines, made from various fruits other than grapes. With David’s science-based background in plant pathology and microbiology, he had the skills and wanted to satisfy his curiosity for fermentation and distillation using locally sourced ingredients. They moved to Dorrigo in 2007 & commenced the distillation of excisable products.

At that time, they were amongst a handful of only 16 distilleries in Australia. David was the first distiller in Australia to make Potato Vodka, using the famous red soil Sebago potatoes grown on the Dorrigo Plateau, which he still uses as the base spirit for his Australian gin range, to this day.

Glen Gowrie Distillery is located in the beautiful Furracabad Valley on Ngoorabul country, just west of Glen Innes. Now employing 3 generations of family, David is passing on his knowledge and skills for creating delicious drops from regionally grown ingredients.
