Earp Distilling Co.
Established in 1883 in Newcastle, the Earp family company has adapted to the needs of generations of Australians. Located in the beautiful port-side suburb of Carrington, Earp Distilling Co. offers quality, creativity and new experiences to connoisseurs, the spirit curious and everyone in between.
The Tasting Bar is a stylish alternative to traditional pubs and bars, offering views directly into the working distillery. With a seasonal food and cocktail menu, Earp Distilling Co. spirits are offered as tastings or by the glass. The bar is home to various Australian and international spirits, a curated selection of wines and craft beers.
Enjoy a selection of cocktails, spirits, beer and wine in the Barrel Bar, surrounded by dozens of barrels of maturing spirits - the perfect location for special events and larger group bookings.
Experience a guided spirit tasting, distillery tour, gin blending class or a Gin School class where you become a distiller for a day. Learn about the distilling process, select botanicals and take 'cuts' during your distillation to craft your very own bottle of gin.
Earp Distilling Co. is the home of the spirit curious, built to produce high-quality Australian spirits in an experiential modern distillery.
