Hoochery Distillery has opened for the 2017 season. Come out for tastings of our Award-winning rums or for our delicious home-made cakes. Better yet from May onwards until Mid-September come out and enjoy one of our yummy lunches while relaxing in our beer garden. We are well worth the drive (15km out of town along Weaber Plains Road)

A wonderful night with friends watching the Melbourne Comedy Festival at the Hoochery eating fish tacos and drinking fantastic rum! Totally recommend the experience run by Mellen Events as part of the Ord Valley Festival. We'll be back.

Our group visited the Hoochery Distillery which has tasting of all their spirits - more than rum. It is a fun and friendly venue, their products are expensive but well worth a try, you may just land one you love! The highlight for me though was their famous rum cake, worth the visit alone!

We were given a great overview of each of the different rums produced at the Hoochery, and there certainly was an extensive selection. For only $5 you can taste a selection of three rums. We were told about the their famous chocolate Rum Cake however we didn't indulge. Our favourite rum was Cane Royale liqueur. Would highly recommend a visit... More

Great lunch place, the menu is cheap and you can also try the rums. The rumcake is also highly recommended. We didn't do a tour, but it is on the list of things to do before leaving.

WA's oldest Legal still was a pleasure to see and visit. Margaret, the gracious hostess advised us of the history and the enthusiasm and passion of the american owner. Most of the furniture was local and created a fantastic nostalgic atmosphere. We learnt quite a bit about the various rums. Some of thee artefacts were super. Would recommend a visit.

Interesting place to visit. We did the rum tasting which was a lot of fun. The spiced rum was the best!

Visit WA's only legal distillery. Small fee for a selection (3 good size serves) of your spirits/liquors of choice. A variety of rums, whiskeys and liquors available. I recommend the mango spiced drink (smells like Christmas). Also, the 66% rum is interesting, not for the faint hearted though. They serve tea/coffee and cake for the designated drivers :-)

It is a fun place and worth a visit in Kununurra. The tastings of various spirits is interesting as they do some different spirits that could be fairly rough depending on your view. Each had a kick but worth the time to visit.

We were recommended to visit the distillery by a family member in the trade. It was great fun and the place was interesting. The staff were friendly and enjoyed their jobs and this always makes a visit to a place such as this extra special. Also just about everyone we bumped into who had visited or was a local recommended... More

I tried 3 rums. The single barrel being the best by far. We had good coffee and an ice cream sandwich each. We bought several shirts that were reasonably priced.
