About Us

Spirits From the Land

The Beachtree Distilling Co. story is a tale based on love that began with a boy, standing in front of a girl, confessing his love for handcrafted spirits.

That boy was Steve; a Kamilaroi man and Beachtree’s master distiller. After many years working as a qualified tradesman, Steve decided to channel his electrotechnology and engineering experience into his true passion. The result: a distillation and filtration method unique to Beachtree Distilling Co.

Standing in front of Steve, that girl was Beachtree’s co-creator, Kirra. Raised on Bundjalung Country, some of Kirra’s earliest memories include stamping on grapes during her family’s wine production. While her mother and Nonna introduced her to delicious homemade wine and grappa, fresh herbs and homegrown produce, she also worked the land on her father’s macadamia farm. Kirra’s knowledge of hand-grown produce is evident in Beachtree’s fresh, crisp and clean taste – and the fact all products are proudly additive- and preservative-free.

So, in 2020 this love for small-batch distilling and Australian bush flavours led Steve and Kirra to join hands to create Beachtree Distilling Co. – where the love story continues…

From land to table:
how our spirits are made

We start with Aussie Bush Tucker

For thousands of years, Indigenous Australians have been using native Australian flora as part of bush tucker. This includes extraordinary botanicals.

Not only are native Australian botanicals bursting with tasty flavors, but they also provide many health benefits for us too. Often referred to as ‘superfoods’, they contain tons of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.

Using these native botanicals, along with classic gin ingredients such as juniper berries, is a no-brainer.

We source organically grown sugar cane

Our base spirit used in our tasty gin and vodka is made from certified organically grown sugar cane.

No pesticides, no chemicals and harvested with sustainable practices.

This is not only kinder to your body and the land, but also creates a cleaner, crisp and smoother spirit.

P.S. It is naturally gluten-free.

Our one-of-a-kind distillation process begins

At Beachtree, our distillation technique is our magic. By using a specialised science-engineered approach, each product is finely crafted with our triple distilled, four-times-filtered organic sugar cane base.

We then vapor infuse our unique blends of native and organic botanicals. Finally, we combine this with superbly filtered rainwater to ensure no nasties enter your drink.

From bottling to your bottle-o

Next, it’s time to bottle up! We use recyclable or re-usable glass bottles on site, ready to be delivered to your doorstep or local bottle-o.

Each bottle displays an intricate, hand-drawn illustration of an Australian animal and the botanicals that inspired the creation of the gin.

The Beachtree Way

Clean, ethical + sustainable practices

Our native botanicals are grown on country; and sourced using ethical and sustainable methods. Beachtree’s base spirit is made from certified organically grown sugar cane, which are harvest with sustainable practices and without the use of pesticides or chemicals. In addition, our distillation and production process happens at our site.

Our waste is minimal: we only produce bio-waste, which goes back into the earth. We are committed to giving back to the land that gives to us – meaning that quality, love and care exist in every single drop.

One bottle, one tree

Have you heard? For every 500ml bottle of gin or vodka that you purchase from Beachtree Distilling Co., we plant one tree on your behalf. Here’s how it works: our planting scheme rotates location, depending on the season and current need.

Currently, we are channelling a portion of the proceeds from each bottle you purchase to arrange the planting of finger-lime trees near beautiful Byron Bay.
