Nosferatu Distillery is a charming cafe by day and enchanted gin lounge by night, set inside a fairy-lit warehouse in Bowen Hills.
The romantic industrial space is the perfect spot to enjoy expertly brewed espresso supplied by boutique coffee roaster Adore Coffee, as well as sample the distillery's small batch gin collection.
Drinks are dispensed from a vintage caravan, well stocked with an array of gins (including other boutique brands), along with a curated selection of Australian wines, spirits and craft beers.
Plenty of seating is provided inside the dog-friendly warehouse including a couple of leather lounges and an old church pew, with a wall of vintage timber ladders and lots of lush greenery.
Inspired by art house cinema, specifically the cult classic Nosferatu (1922 film adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula), the distillery's gin series includes their award-winning Blood Orange Gin, plus Mandrake Cucumber & Mint, Giselle Pavlova, Bunyip Sticky, classic Dead Dry Gin and Vodka.
If you can't decide which gin to try, there are several gin flights available including one with 4 Nosferatu gins served with tonic or soda, botanicals and ice, Tour Around Australia and Around the World featuring international gins from France, Scotland, Italy and Canada.
Signature cocktails to try are Bunyip's Elbows (honey, lemon and Bunyip Sticky Gin) and BGN or Bloody Good Negroni - Nosferatu's twist on the classic negroni cocktail featuring Blood Orange gin.
Nice to know - Cafe by day, Nosferatu has a range of snacks on offer, from bacon and egg muffins, croissants and toasties, to sweet treats.
