The Angove family’s St Agnes Distillery famous spirt range is now seamlessly integrated in a newly refurbished Cellar and Distillery Door in McLaren Vale. Located at 117 Chalk Hill Road, this venture blends a long history of wine and brandy production.
The St Agnes Distillery, known for its award-winning brandies, including being named Australia’s best, offers an enticing Brandy Flight experience featuring its exquisite XO series, aged up to 40 years. The Camborne Single Malt Whisky, another St Agnes specialty, presents a unique tasting opportunity with its variety of cask expressions, including Brandy, Sherry, Tawny, and Shiraz casks.
Earlier this year, their XO 15YO Brandy took out the best brandy in the country in Tasting Australia’s Spirit Awards as well as Champion Spirit at the Royal Australian Spirit Awards.
The Blind Tiger Organic Gin, crafted with organic botanicals, is a testament to the distillery’s commitment to sustainability and premium quality. It offers a refreshing taste experience for gin enthusiasts.
Complementing the spirits tasting, the venue’s ‘Vineyard Dining’ experience, led by Executive Chef Georgie Rogers, serves lunch from Thursday to Sunday. The menu, crafted to pair perfectly with the wines and spirits, has already garnered acclaim for its exceptional quality.
Set against the backdrop of McLaren Vale’s scenic vineyards, the new Cellar and Distillery Door is not just for tasting; it’s an opportunity to dive into the rich histories of the Angove family and St Agnes Distillery, and to learn about the art of winemaking and spirit distillation.
Open daily, this combined destination is set to become a favorite for both locals and visitors, offering a chance to explore some of the best drinks South Australia has to offer in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
