There's a certain romance to the idea of tucking into a warming whisky or a refreshing gin and tonic in an unadorned shack out in the bush. Victoria's slew of distilleries are setting up in the unlikeliest locations to make the most talked-about whiskys, gins and more.

Distilleries have been a part of Victoria for generations, though not always on the right side of the law. These days they're completely legitimate and are seizing the opportunity to shine, hot on the heels of the craft beer revolution.

Spirits in old buildings

Not only are regional distilleries making some fine spirits, they're doing so in historically significant locations. The Timboon Railway Shed Distillery's illicit production is part of local folklore. Loch Brewery and Distillery stores its botanicals in the vault of an old bank in Gippsland, Corowa Whisky and Chocolate returned an abandoned flour mill to life, and Herbal Lore Liqueurs is housed in a former butter factory in Daylesford.

Whisky and gin in wine territory

Victoria's acclaimed wine regions are also getting in on the act, with Bass and Flinders Distillery bringing a 300-litre French designed alembic style still to the Mornington Peninsula, and Four Pillars Gin joining the Yarra Valley's wineries in the international wards stakes for its innovative gin creations.
