Overview
More
1770 Distillery was established as a Boutique Distillery to utilise the locally grown fruits of the area and to provide a unique experience for both locals and tourists. It was John's dream to have a distillery and that is what led both John & Debra to the beautiful seaside Town of 1770 / Agnes Water in Queensland. The dream materialized after being bitten by the distilling bug whilst living in Tasmania. It was there that both John & Debra developed their distilling skill under the ever watchful eye of both Bill & Lyn Lark of the Lark Distillery.

We stopped here on a rainy day to check things out. The fella running it was fantastic to talk to and we really enjoyed our conversation with him. The liqueurs are delicious and we really enjoyed hearing the process that goes into creating the drinks!...More

This is a small (micro) distillery producing 4 varieties of fruit liqueurs. John, the proprietor, is passionate about the distillation process and is very informative. I had hoped that a tour of the distillery may have been available but that unfortunately isn't an option.

Nice whiskey. Fruity with a Queensland flavour. Owner was passionate about his product and we got to taste test also. Nice nursery also.

This is a must do. John is hugely passionate about his venture and spent a lot of time explaining the process to us. He patiently answered questions, and his liqueur is delicious.
