The gin take over of Adelaide continues with the launch of Twenty Third Distillery on Melbourne. We’ve totally fallen in love with this celebrated South Australian Distillery and its range of gin, vodka, brandy and rum. Now there is another way to explore, taste and immerse yourself in their quality products. The specially created bar brings the stories from the Renmark Distillery to the heart of North Adelaide.
“The space is a true representation of our Renmark Distillery,” says Group Venues Manager, Renee Bezzina.
“We know many South Australians love the Twenty Third Street Distillery products but have not had the chance to experience the unique and vibrant environment they are created in. Twenty Third Street on Melbourne will change this.”
To further showcase the feel of the distinctive and historic South Australian Distillery, Twenty Third Street on Melbourne allows guests to experience a 360-degree virtual reality tour video of the Renmark venue, by way of a virtual reality headset at the bar. The 3D headset transports you on a tour of the distillery and surrounds and it really does make it feel as though you are there. It may look a little silly standing at the bar turning your head left to right and even up and down, but you will be wowed by the stunning and realistic virtual reality you will experience.
Other fantastic experiences visitors can partake in include gin and rum blending sessions, cocktail master classes and immersion sessions with Distillers and Brewers.
“We have designed the venue to engage and educate our guests,” says Twenty Third Street Distillery’s Master Distiller, Graham Buller. “We want people to learn about our rich history, enjoy our prime spirits and get to know our team and what makes Twenty Third Street different and unique for South Australia.”
Patrons can also take advantage of Twenty Third Street on Melbourne’s personalised bottle offering. By purchasing a bottle of gin to drink onsite, the team will personalise the label with a customer’s name which will then be showcased in the bar cellar onsite and accessible to have a drink from when visiting the bar.
Twenty Third Street on Melbourne opened to the public this week.
