Ladbroken Distilling Co. is a family business on a mission to make great tasting hand crafted Australian single malt whisky and distinctive Australian botanical spirits and liqueurs.
Ladbroken was founded in 2020 by Robbie and Neil Ladbrook when they visited Tumbarumba and were quickly enchanted by the magic of the region. A love of whisky, gin, science and all things creative came together to launch us into this new adventure crafting unique High-Country spirits and establishing a botanicals garden on site in town.
They are on a mission to showcase the best of the region's growers highlighting the fresh fruit and produce of local growers, particularly those hard hit by the Black Summer Bush Fires.
CRAFTSMANSHIP + AUTHENTICITY
Neil’s experience as a mechanical engineer and “mend or make do” attitude means he has just as much fun building and tinkering with the equipment as he does carefully crafting, brewing and distilling his spirits. He uses only great quality local ingredients from the Riverina and surrounds which are slowly crafted with time and tenacity into a smooth spirit bursting with local flavour.
TIME + DEDICATION
Whilst the whisky sits quietly resting in barrels for a few years Robbie is hard at work establishing a botanicals garden on site including a demonstration herb garden and forage walk. Her interest in all thing’s science led to a love of botanicals and gin whilst living abroad and visiting micro distilleries and apothecaries around the UK. Growing and sourcing local fruits, nuts, berries and bush tucker from producers around town will allow for exciting seasonal experimentation and all natural taste adventures. We don't use and preservatives, colourings or artificial flavours, rather we let the local produce speak for itself.
At Ladbroken Distilling Co. we pride ourselves on handcrafting great tasting smooth spirits bursting with local flavours. We capture the magic of the Australian High-Country so you can share the adventures along the way.
