Follow the Swan Valley Distillery Trail.

The only trail of its kind in Australia, where visitors can experience five distinct and very different award-winning distilleries in less than a day. 

Distilling has been a tradition in the Swan Valley for close to a century, with grapes distilled into spirit commercially at Valencia in Caversham and at Houghton in Middle Swan from the early 1900s. New arrivals from Europe to the Swan Valley also brought with them the tradition and skill of distilling spirits. Many had home stills, with the distilling of grapes into rakia and grappa part of their way of life. On occasion, a loud explosion would echo across the Valley as one of the stills exploded, sending pots flying through ceilings and families running for cover.

Today, distillation in the Swan Valley is a fine art with dedicated distillers handcrafting a wide range of spirits including gin, vodka, brandy, limoncello and rum. This trail will provide you with an insight into the world of the Swan Valley’s dedicated distillers who are passionately crafting world-class spirits, both in the traditional style and with cutting edge innovation.

Did you know that spirits have zero carbohydrates, are vegan friendly, and some are gluten free? It is no wonder chefs, foodies and mixologists are seeking out the small batch award-winning spirits produced and available right here in the Swan Valley. Choosing to explore this trail supports the local artisans who craft small batch spirits, each with their own distinctive character and style.

Meet the makers of these spirits. Taste, touch, smell and hear the stories of the botanicals that create unique flavours and at some cellar doors, go behind the scenes to view the distillation process.
