Emerald Island Distillery is not open to the public...but you can find us every Sunday at The Harbourside Markets Coffs Harbour

There have been no recorded sightings of Emerald Island since 1821. First spotted by British sailing ship The Emerald, since then, though charted on seafaring maps, it has remained a phantom. However...standing at the Emerald Island Distillery, gazing out to the Solitary Islands, through the tropical haze you can just make out the green of a mysterious mirage...The Emerald Island!


The Booty Pack


Seasonal Regional Botanicals

Premium Dry Gin

Serve over ice, or top with Fever-Tree Light Tonic.

Don’t be scared of a short mix either, bigger is not always better. You don’t want to drown this little gem. A lowball glass, high ice and half the mixer, means Emerald Island Premium Dry Gin can take the lead role.

Expect loads of flavour from this delightful little number.

We recommend garnishing with a basil flower, a slice of sour seasonal fruit, or a tortured raspberry - rather than the more traditional garnish of lemon or lime - (which tend to overpower the botanicals in Emerald Island gins).

Take your time with it, appreciate not only the flavour but the fragrance. Best imbibed in a semi-reclined position...hammock or poolside recliner equally fitting. The lady inside the bottle has the position nailed.


Mirage Gin with Light Tonic

Everything about Mirage Gin is natural, from the vibrant seasonal botanicals, to the amazing deep colour. Like the cold deep waters of the grand Pacific Ocean, this gin changes like a watery mirage. It pours like a blue wave into your glass but once topped with sparkling tonic, it changes to the radiant lilac of a tropical island flower. As it swirls and changes before your eyes, it is hard to look away from the mystery that is a Natural Mirage.

Try half filing your glass with crushed ice, then pour your drink in thirds. One measure of Fever-Tree Light Tonic, one pour of Mirage Gin, then top with a splash more tonic.

Mirage Gin is particularily refreshing: floral, grassy and aromatic.

Garnish with a sweet rather than sour; ruby orange or stone fruit.

Kick back and enjoy.


Dark Seed - The Ultimate Decadence

Dark Seed is the ultimate local collaboration and the result is total dark decadence.

Emerald Island Distillery have combined the delights of all things dark, to create Dark Seed: Macadamia nuts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and black chia seeds, blended with the softness of French Oak.

Distilled macadamia nuts from Mac Nuts Nambucca aged gracefully in French Oak barrels, then combined with cold steeped coffee from Dark Arts Cafe & Bar, decedent chocolate from the Chocolate Dr, Australian grown vanilla from Cassowary Coast Vanilla, all smoothed together with black chia seeds.

Serve over ice with a twist of orange, or shake into a most charming Dark Seed Martini.

Berry Slow Gin

Don't be fooled by the vibrant, while totally natural colour. Berry Slow Gin is no prissy drink. Boasting all the boldness of a full-bodied gin, Berry Slow is delicious served neat on ice, or as a Berry Gin & Tonic (we like Light Tonic with a garnish of mint).

Or enjoy as a Berry Slow Spritz – A generous glass of ice, Berry Slow Gin, topped with a cascade of quality Australian Sparkling (& seriously we do mean quality, don't mix it with any old trash). Garnish to your audience.

Don’t be afraid to experiment… Berry Slow Gin loves a little muddle…crushed ice, fresh berries and mint, will get you off to a winning start. Berry Slow is not limited to Sunsets drinks, embrace it with a “Slow” Sunday lunch.


Ginger Bee Gin

Emerald Island also boasts a very happy population of productive honey bees, who feast on the vast herbaceous gardens and mighty tallow woods. Emerald Island bees produce the most flavoursome honey in the lands. Along with plump zingy ginger from the gardens, we've blended their honey into our Barrel Aged Gin and the result is quite extraordinary.

Chill this little gem over ice and garnish to your taste, with either a sprig of rosemary or a sliver of ginger. Then the only decision remaining, is what relaxing position to choose.

Spice Chest Gin

Limited Release.

Emerald Island Spice Chest Gin, is a festive blend of warming spice, candied cumquats, caramelised fruit and of course, the ever present juniper.

With all the flavour romance you would expect to find sailing the spice routes of yesteryear.

Savour this treat over an ample glass of ice and give Spice Chest your undivided attention. Or embrace your inner deserted island, by mixing the ultimate spiced gin cocktail. Emerald Island Spice Chest Gin, a splash of pineapple juice, topped with either coconut cream or ‘dry' chilled sparkling. You’ll feel like you’ve already found the chest of buried treasure.
