Corowa was a vibrant New South Wales town in the 1800’s due to its close proximity to the Murray River. As always man found greater need to transport items quicker and so road transport became more popular and the town lost its vibe. The local flour mill which sits in the towns centre lay dormant for many years, that is till Corowa Distilling Co. decided to purchase it from the local council for $1.
Dean Druce, the owner of Corowa Distilling Co. owned the Junee Liquorice and Chocolate Factory in Wagga Wagga, which was also based in a restored flour mill. This mill in Corowa experienced a major overhaul and after spending years on renovations turned this Corowa site into something magical. Every heard of Willy Wonks Chocolate Factory? Well, now add whisky to the equation and take away the kids!
With help from Head Distiller Beau Schilg, Dean has not only created a magnificent place to make whisky and chocolate but a place to make great whisky and great chocolate. The combination is artistic and de vine.
Taking old tawny port barrels, old sherry barrels and ex-bourbon barrels from the USA and filling them with fruity new make and waiting patiently for at least two years has now paid off. The wait is over and now we can all enjoy their hard work and the ultimate vision. The Corowa Distilling Co.
