Raise A Glass & Tap Your Toes: Distilled At The Co-Op Gerringong

Play, Sydney / 31 May 2024

Looking for a long weekend getaway that’s more than just the beach?

The King’s Birthday long weekend is upon us, and if you’re looking for a charming escape that combines musical discovery with an exploration of local craftsmanship, then look no further than Distilled at The Co-Op Gerringong.

Nestled in the heart of this New South Wales South Coast town, The Co-Op is a beautifully restored former dairy co-operative that boasts a unique blend of rustic charm and modern elegance. Exposed steel beams and a gabled roof create a rustic atmosphere, the perfect setting for a relaxed and vibrant weekend.

Distilled is a celebration of everything crafted with passion in the Gerringong region. Over two days, the event offers a delightful opportunity to sample a diverse selection of spirits from esteemed local distilleries like Tara Distillery, Wolf and Woman Distillery, Old Salt Distillery, and Merrigangs. Chat with the distillers themselves, learn about their unique processes, and find your new favourite spirit – perhaps a small-batch gin infused with local botanicals or a single-malt whisky matured to perfection in Australian casks.

Complementing the spirit tastings is a carefully curated lineup of Australian artists, ensuring there’s a melody for everyone. From the soulful tunes of Sunday Lemonade to the infectious energy of Electric Ginger, Distilled promises a dynamic musical journey that will keep your toes tapping throughout the weekend.

Distilled wouldn’t be complete without delicious food options to pair with your botanicals. The Hungry Monkey Food Truck will be a permanent fixture throughout the event, offering their signature gourmet burgers alongside other tempting treats. For those seeking lighter fare, a selection of grazing boxes is also available. Featuring an enticing array of cheeses, dips, marinated vegetables, and house-made pickles, these grazing boxes are perfect for sharing or enjoying as a solo treat.

Distilled at The Co-Op Gerringong goes beyond a simple tasting event and gives visitors an opportunity to experience the warmth and vibrancy of Gerringong. Explore the beautifully restored Co-Op building, a testament to the town’s rich dairy farming history and then perhaps even venture out and discover the hidden gems that the Gerringong region has to offer, from pristine beaches to charming local shops.

Grab your dancing shoes, and head south for a delightful long weekend filled with good vibes, delicious food, toe-tapping music, and the chance to discover some of Australia’s finest spirits.
