Come and immerse your senses and learn the art of becoming a barrel thief, at Mornington Peninsula’s only Single Malt Whisky distillery, in Somerville. Sit and sip the nectars of the barrel, whilst the family-owned distillers guide you through their full-bodied whiskies aged in French Oak barrels and captivate you with their stories, all whilst you overlook the distillery floor.

Once you’ve finished your experience at the distillery, we are surrounded by many wonderful places on the Mornington Peninsula to explore. Our distillers have listed a few of their favourite activities to See and Do.
