Five Eleven Distilling

Welcome to the spirited world of Five Eleven Distilling! Picture a family deeply rooted in agriculture, making their mark in the foothills of Adelaide. We're all about blending years of grain expertise with a genuine love for distillation. Our journey kicked off in 2022, and let me tell you, it's been one wild ride. Teaming up with SixTwelve Brewing, we dove headfirst into the whole grain-to-bottle distillation scene. Each premium drop is handcrafted right here from grain-based washes. And the growth didn't just stop with vodkas and gins — it allowed us to expand our product range, introducing an Adelaide Hills apple eau de vie collaboration and delicious liqueurs to the mix. Oh, and the cherry on top? We've recently tucked away our first few whiskeys into barrels. We're not just whipping up spirits; we're carving out a unique road where family, quality, and innovation all converge. So, welcome to the heart and soul of our spirited adventure!

Tin Shed Distilling Co

The story of the distillery is unconventional.  Normally distillery owners start with a large tub of money and slowly turn that into warehouses full of whisky.  In the case of Tin Shed, there was no large tub of money.  The construction and production was initially funded by Vic and Ian working in their trades, Vic as a postie and Ian as a flagpole maker.  For the first five years the distillery was located in a corner of the flagpole factory.  It is only in the last year or two that the flagpoles have been moved out and the distillery expanded.  To the uninitiated the distillery is still disguised as a flagpole factory! Along the way Tin Shed has picked up three Icons of Whisky Awards, a best-in-class World Whisky Award, a couple of World Whisky Awards gold medals, Australian medals of all colours and Liquid Gold ratings in The Whisky Bible as well as Best Australian and Best Southern Hemisphere Whisky.It is not Vic or Ian’s intention to flood world markets with oceans of beige whisky.  Instead, Iniquity aims to hand craft a family of small batches of passionate, interesting malts with personality and individual character.  This family of fallen angels are like brothers; alike, but different.Their passion at Tin Shed Distilling Co is to produce malts that they will want to drink.  Vic and Ian invite you to share their passion and drop in at their new distillery located at Nairne in the Adelaide Hills and find out if you like the same whiskies they do.

Tilbrook Estate

Established in 1998, our first real vintage was 2002. We opened our first cellar door in Lobethal's Woollen Mills in 2003 and after 15 years there moved to our vineyard, where we were building a new cellar door. In late December 2019 we were one of the worst hit vineyards in the Cudlee Creek bushfire, and we also lost our winery. The latter was more devastating for the first year because we had no wine to sell. But we had a lot of volunteers come and help, tradespeople offered their time for free, and the wine community were amazing. Out of all this generosity our "hope!" wine range was born. At the moment we are steadily working towards having back our Estate wines, which are either grown by us, made by us or bottled by us.
As well as our wine we want to promote our cellar door and food. We are passionate about the environment, renewable energy and sustainable building design and materials. Our cellar door is South Australia's first “new build” zero net carbon cellar door! The building is all electric, except a wood heater for ambience in Winter. All our power during the day is generated from our 12.2 kW Tindo/ SolarEdge PV system, plus we export three times what we need, which brings our “build” carbon down to zero. During the night and cloudy days our power is supplied exclusively from “green” power from Adelaide based IO Energy – biogas, wind, and solar.We have a Scandi style design inside and outside magnificent views of the upper Onkaparinga Valley. Overlooking pastures, orchards, bush blocks and vineyards, we are often joined by kangaroos in the late afternoon, yellow tailed black cockatoos, wedge tailed eagles, hawks, and other native birds.
