Animus Distillery

Premium Small Batch Hand Crafted Australian Gin

Animus Distillery

Animus Distillery was founded in 2015, by four friends with a shared passion for producing world-class spirits. Initially starting with round-the-clock research and development in their Fitzroy North garage, they quickly outgrew the space and expanded to a larger rural property, before establishing their distillery in Kyneton, Central Victoria.

Capturing the soul of the freshest ingredients for our gin is central to our production philosophy.

They use the highest grade of 100% Australian grain spirit, triple filtered using their custom gravity-fed carbon filter system, to provide the purest base for capturing the soul of the botanicals.

Animus grow many of the botanicals on their property, and use a vapour pressed production approach for distillation. Their gins are produced in small batches, where our botanical baskets are changed frequently throughout the production of each batch, to extract the freshest, richest flavours from the balance of Australian native and international ingredients.

Whilst labour intensive, this approach allows them to taste our gins throughout the production of each batch, balancing each element with the sensibility of a fine chef to ensure they reflect the exquisite balance and intensity they aim to showcase with our botanicals.

The Cocktail Lounge is furnished with multiple sumptuous Chesterfield lounges to sink back into as you decide which Animus gin expression you would like to sample first.
The food on offer is fantastic we can recommend the Charcuterie and Cheese Board to pair perfectly with a Gin Flight.
In addition to Animus gin and a fabulous range of cocktails, you will find an abundant offering of premium whiskies, the very best in Australian craft beer and a carefully curated selection of red, white and sparkling wines from Central Victoria and beyond.
If you are making the trip to the Macedon Ranges a stop a Animus Distillery is a must but be sure to book to avoid disappointment.
