Apollo Bay Distillery

BarAdvisor had a chance to talk to Suzanne Vermeulen from Apollo Bay Distillery to find out more about this beautiful distillery on the Great Ocean Road.

Truly local

The Apollo Bay Distillery is a place to escape the noise and chaos of everyday life.
The Apollo Bay gins are linked to the ships that sailed off this treacherous coast many years ago and serve as a strong reminder of Apollo Bay’s nautical history. Located in the old Post Office, built in 1970, distillery also houses the anchor of the historic SS Casino who came to a fateful end off one of the local beaches.

Started in Covid times

Apollo Bay Distillery opened in Feb 2020, just when Covid hit! Being open for only four weeks before needing to close for lockdowns was stressful. It has been a hell of a ride with all the restrictions, but they’ve made it through.

Plenty of reasons to visit

A visit to Apollo Bay Distillery would not be complete without trying a gin flight consisting of handcrafted gins, distilled onsite, using local botanicals. These unique and artisan gins can be enjoyed alongside a freshly made wood-fired pizza, using only the finest flour and ingredients. Sit back, enjoy the views, gin, and pizza.
