Stone Pine Distillery
At Stone Pine Distillery we are passionate about distilling.
Since 2008 we have been bringing our unique range of spirits and liqueurs to Bathurst and beyond. Our distilling philosophy is simple: use high quality raw materials and keep processing to a minimum, in order to showcase the natural flavours - we never use additives or preservatives.
The use of Australian native ingredients, featured in our Native Range, offers a wide range of flavours not typically found in other spirits - our flagship Dry Gin epitomises this, and was awarded a prestigious silver medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London. This is complemented by our Classic and Seasonal Ranges.
Bev and Ian Glen have their roots steeped in the Scottish brewing and distilling industry. They moved to Australia, complete with children and dog, in 2006 with the aim of establishing Bathurst’s first microdistillery. Bev used to run various Edinburgh pubs, while Ian is a biochemist and holds a Post-Graduate Diploma in Brewing & Distilling from Heriot-Watt University. He is also an Associate Member of the Institute of Brewing & Distilling and has spent his entire career in the malting, brewing and distilling industry.
Stone Pine Distillery is situated on the historic homestead of ‘Merembra’ which dates back to the 1840s and was for a time, in the late 19th century, known as The Barley Mow Hotel. After a 140 year absence, the property is once again host to a liquor licence, a long time between drinks! The stone pine tree, situated on the front lawn of the property, is thought to be of age with the house and, of course, is the distillery’s namesake.
We utilise solar power and harvested rainwater in the distilling process. Other measures to reduce environmental impact include solar passive building design, insulation, high efficiency still and lighting and recycled packaging materials (where possible).
