Happy schnapps and snacks in the snowy mountains

The Wild Brumby Schnapps Distillery and Cafe offers a taste of Bavaria and Austria in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains. The Distillery and café are decorated in rustic alpine style with antler chandeliers and high beamed ceilings. A beautiful copper still dominated one end of the restaurant and there is seating both inside and out.

Outside, Wild Brumby has beautiful views of the mountains, an orchard, a sculpture garden and play area where adults and kids alike can have a stretch. The gardens are open year round and are especially beautiful in the spring when tulips and blossoms add some colour although sunny winter days can be just as breathtakingly beautiful.

The Wild Brumby restaurant menu includes many Austrian classics which seem to taste even better in the fresh mountain air. Favourites are the schnitzels which are crunchy outside and meltingly tender inside and the goulash which is hearty and warming especially on cool winter days. Other meals include sausage platters and kassler. Whatever you decide on, all of the meals are reasonably portioned with sides including fried potato and salad. There are German beers on tap to wash it all down and make sure you save some room for dessert too! The strudel, in particular, is just delicious and great for getting some energy pre or post-ski.

Of course, the thing which most people can't leave without trying is the schnapps. The Distillery offers a variety of schnapps flavours including sweet, syrupy butterscotch, raspberry and apple both made from fruit grown on site and even a warming chilli flavour. As well as schnapps, other spirits including limoncello, vodka and gin are on the distiller's menu. They are absolutely delicious and the bottles are gorgeous making a perfect souvenir of your snow weekend. Tastings are available before you buy so you can find the perfect flavour for you.

Wild Brumby is getting busier as the seasons' pass and can be a very full house during the ski season so booking a table is highly recommended. Wild Brumby is around two and a half hours drive from Canberra. Located a very short drive from Jindabyne, just off the Alpine Way, it's outside of the National Park so you won't need a parks pass or snow chains to visit.
