WHO MAKES IT?
Black Gate Distillery is the dream come true of Brian and Denise Hollingsworth and is the first distillery located in the Central West of NSW in Australia. A mechanic and teacher by trade Brian decided to leave his career to pursue his passion for making rum and whisky. This career change allowed Brian and Genise to live in the rural heart of New South Wales in a small town with a population of 400 called Mendooran. The couple spent time travelling through NSW, Tasmania, Scotland and Ireland researching and gaining knowledge in the art of distilling high quality spirits and liqueurs before returning to Mendooran to open the distillery. Black Gate Distillery was opened to the public in Mendooran in January 2012 and apart from whisky, also produces a range of fruit infused vodkas, liqueurs and rum.
