TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN DISTILLERY
87-91 Beacon Road, North Tamborine After 25 years, the founders of this Tamborine favourite have handed over the reins. New owners Gordon Chalmers and Shumei Hou took over the business in October and have opened a purpose-built, Tudor-style tasting house at the front of the property. Tamborine Mountain Distillery has amassed hundreds of national and international awards for its handmade liqueurs, schnapps, vodkas and eaux de vies over the last quarter of a century. The recipes remain the same and Gordon says they’re reviving a few old favourites. All the eccentricities of the family-run business have been preserved.
