In a region where wine is the first drink of choice, gin is a close second! When visiting the Barossa this winter, be sure to stop by at one (or three) of our top picks for gin in the region.
Barossa Distilling Tasting Room & Bar
It’s only fitting that at the top of the list, we give you Barossa Distilling Company. Barossa’s first and finest gin distillery, established in 2016. Barossa Distilling gin is quintessentially Barossa, a creative infusion of 12 botanicals, distilled with premium quality Barossa grape spirit. Visit their tasting room and bar to taste their signature Generations Gin – A Spirit of Barossa, infused with traditional juniper and vibrant SA citrus, and hints of French oak in the distillation.
The recently refurbished Barossa Cucina restaurant at the Barossa Weintal serves up traditional Italian-style food as well as classic staples, featuring the best local ingredients sourced by celebrity Executive Chef, Adam Swanson. Add a wonderfully articulated menu, a relaxed, modern environment and a fully stocked bar and wine cellar, and we give you Barossa Cucina. The extensive drinks menu will have you salivating before you can say “one gin please!”.
The Cellar Kitchen
The Cellar Kitchen opened in 2016 at the Novotel Barossa and is the place for exceptional dining and feeling gin-vincible. Working closely with small local farmers and growers, the seasonal menu on offer reflects the unique terrois of the Barossa showcasing its extraordinary produce. As for the drinks menu, expect nothing less of an exceptional wine list but most importantly you’ll find everything from the classic London dry gin, botanical Hendricks to Barossa’s own Barossa Distilling Company.
Where to stay? The Barossa Weintal is offering up to 30% off this winter, plus a complimentary 375ml bottle of Penfolds.
