The Brisbane Distillery Company has recently re-launched in Jane Street, West End, showcasing its extended gin school and cocktail bar in decadent style. Whilst the gin school had been in existence, the bar adds an air of sophistication.
Sophisticated cocktail bar sets new standards in West End.
The bar is beautifully outfitted with plush seating booths, olde worlde pendant lighting, indigo wallpaper, copper-toned bar facade, and body-hugging barstools and chairs.
There are several types of botanical gins on offer, most with a uniquely Australian twist. Tastings are held from Tuesday to Saturday, 11am till 6pm.

Game of Eucalyptus
contains juniper, Angelica root, Kakadu plum, finger lime, strawberry eucalyptus, and lemon myrtle. This gin has a Silver Award (Australian Gin Awards).

is concocted with juniper, coriander seed, cinnamon bark, green cardamom, mandarin, lemon-scented ironbark, nerolina, and Tasmanian pepperberry.
The bar serves up cocktails made with gin, rhum, and vodka. "Rhum agricole" (shortened to rhum) is distinguished from rum as it is made from fresh-pressed sugar cane juice rather than molasses. This is probably an over-simplified explanation, but there IS a difference.
The gin school, Brisbane's first, now has even more room and can easily cater for groups of up to 40 (think corporate bonding, social groups, stag parties).
Hand sanitiser is also being produced as an offshoot of the Covid-19 crisis
