Granddad Jack's Craft Distillery


Granddad Jack's Craft Distillery is tucked away in a stunningly converted warehouse, steeped in old world charm in an industrial Albion side street.

Step inside the barn-like door to find a gorgeous rustic split level space, with shiny distillery barrels in the front section and a greenhouse and air garden out back. The entire place has been built with recycled materials including wrought iron and stained glass windows salvaged from an old dance school down the road.

Named after the owner's great-grandfather, who in the early 20th century was a racing horse owner from Otago, New Zealand, Granddad Jack's is the go-to for house-made gin, vodka and craft beer.
