And now, with the introduction of a whiskey and gin distillery, it has widened its ability to offer more crafted taste experiences. The new Tar Bar will also maintain its belief in being ‘local’ and using ‘local’, having a core and specialty beers on tap to enjoy alongside the famous wood-fired pizzas. Local wines and spirits ensure all are catered for. A destination not to be missed.

Rocky Jones Brewery & Distillery in Mornington Peninsula
Crafted with passion on the Mornington Peninsula, the Melone brothers have taken old Italian methods passed down from their grandfather to produce premium quality spirits. All spirits are distilled using wine as a base. The first batch was produced using Pinot Grigio wine, and after many hours of perfecting the recipe, the first Rocky Jones Gin was created. We hope you enjoy our gin with family and friends!
How Is Rocky Jones Gin Made?
We use traditional methods that have been passed down for three generations. This includes letting our eight botanicals sit with the neutral spirit for 24 hours. Next, we hand peel citrus and vapour infuse it. We then let our copper still do the work. Throughout distillation, we take cuts to ensure only high-quality gin is collected. Finally, we dilute the gin with rainwater and filter the product before bottling. Our goal is to produce premium quality gin at an affordable price for the Rocky Jones family.
Mr Banks Brewing Co & Distillery in Mornington Peninsula
03 9785 9999
Founded in 2016 by the husband & wife team Chris & Penny Farmer, the brewery is named after their beloved dog Banks. Mr Banks was built on a love of good food, wine & great beer. Starting small and remaining family-owned has been the driving force of the brewery, along with always putting the beer first and figuring out the rest later. We brew & package everything we make at our home in Seaford, Victoria. It hasn’t always been known as a beer destination, but with the local following & venues that have opened around us, it has become a great beer community in the Sth East.
At Banks, we brew a large array of styles but are most known for our IPAs & Big Stouts. We also focus heavily on perfecting that ultimate IPA (which we know we will never achieve but will continue anyway). “It can always be better” is somewhat of our motto, and we believe if you achieve perfection, what’s left to shoot for.

FAQs About Brewery
Expenses can generally be grouped into two categories: major expenses and smaller expenses. If you’re a first-time brewer and not sure if you can acquire enough funding for the project, starting a microbrewery can also be a good alternative.
A brewery or brewing company is a business that makes and sells beer. The place at which beer is commercially made is either called a brewery or a beerhouse, where distinct sets of brewing equipment are called plant.
Take a day or stretch one into a week - there are plenty of ways to fill your time with Mornington Peninsula brewing taste sensations - indulge in a long lunch with a beer paddle, test run a whisky, take a gin flight or explore a sassy sip of a creative cocktail (or two!). Curious about the process behind your favourite beer, cider or spirit?
Our tours include tutored tastings, plenty of beer and the opportunity to get up close and personal with the brewers and their facilities. The breweries we visit include those on the boutique scale, right through to the major producers. Each brewery tour package includes a ride accommodation that will take you to all 3 or 4 breweries included in the package and back to the meeting place at the end of the tour. The package also includes a light snack and a bottle of water.
The biggest thing to understand in any brewery is that something is always about to go wrong. However, I know that when I began brewing, I didn’t truly understand how gracious the brewing industry can be. So many breweries are in direct competition with each other, yet we tend to drink (and appreciate) the beers that our friends are making.

White Rabbit Brewery & Distillery in Mornington Peninsula
Beginning life in the leafy surrounds of Healesville, Victoria – White Rabbit Brewery was born to be different. Occupying an imaginative space in the Yarra Valley, the brewery made use of the original brew kit from our friends at Little Creatures plus two large, open-top fermenters. As our imagination swelled, so too did our production. So naturally, we required more space to play and grow, so we packed up our kit and set off for a new adventure in Geelong.
Our open fermenters lead creative thinking in the brewery. We play with intriguing use of ingredients and embrace the weird and wonderful to create ales with unique and complex characters and aromas. Pay us a visit in Geelong, and you will find a space created for flavour exploration and play. You’re greeted by copious barrels filled with ageing ales as you enter. These ales are taking on new and complex flavours, encouraging consumers and brewers alike to embark on a flavoursome, educational journey.
Our brewery is built on the spirit of creativity and collaboration, so prepare to leave your preconceptions at the door. Instead, examine the barrels, peek inside the open fermenters, taste something new and exciting, and immerse yourself in a place where fermentation comes with a bit of imagination.
To Sip And To Savour
White Rabbit takes a dash of the wondrous and a touch of the curious to create a unique range of classic, flavoursome ales. A skilful balance of old-world techniques sprinkled with new world thinking enables us to brew beer that reaches beyond the conventional. Searching high and low for ingredients of spellbinding quality, our ales exhibit both complex flavours and wonderful drinkability.

Bass & Flinders Brewery & Distillery in Mornington Peninsula
61 414 238 444
Bass and Flinders Distillery was founded in 2009 on the Mornington Peninsula with a passion for adventure and a desire to create a range of high quality, artisanal gins, brandies and liqueurs that truly reflect our home and heritage.
Proudly the first distillery on the Mornington Peninsula, our original inspiration was drawn from a love of classic brandies produced in France. Using the same traditional production techniques, we set out to produce a premium aged spirit, our Ochre brandy, that proves just how good Australian brandy can be. Our location in the wine-growing region of the Mornington Peninsula provided the perfect setting to pursue our dream.
Our Distilling Process
Attention To Detail
To achieve a world-class spirit takes patience. It requires creativity and attention to detail. At Bass and Flinders Distillery, we are extremely proud of our unique approach to producing quality, handcrafted, premium Australian spirits. Our attention to detail means we choose to make our own grape-based eau de vie spirit (French for ‘Water of Life’), which forms the basis for our entire product range. Our spirits are crafted right here at our Distillery in Dromana, located on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
We believe quality starts with the grape, so all of our spirits - from gin and brandy to liqueurs - have been distilled from wine sourced from a single Victorian vineyard. This allows us to work closely with our winemaker to maintain consistency in acidity, sugar levels and ripeness of fruit in order to control the entire production process from vine to bottle - this is our definition of craft and quality. Our batch-distilled eau de vie spirit showcases the rich, ripe aromas expressive of the terroir where the grapes were grown, and wine is sourced from, creating additional layers of flavour, texture and viscosity to all of our spirits, including our gins.
In pursuit of these unique, contemporary flavours and inspired by European production methods for some of the world’s finest brandies, we make our eau de vie using a traditional Charentais double distillation method using a gas-fired, copper Alembic pot still. It’s a labour of love requiring true craftsmanship. We believe this small-batch process allows the finest aromas, individual characteristics and fruit flavours to reveal themselves.
Our philosophy is to use nothing artificial and to produce small volumes of high-quality spirits. Our distillery is making over 3000 unique gins each year with the help of the many gin enthusiasts attending our weekly Gin Masterclasses, and we’re constantly exploring thousands of native botanicals found across our vast Australian outback to create bright, fresh spirits. We are passionate about creating distinctive gins, brandies and liqueurs and work closely with local growers to source essential, seasonal ingredients such as locally harvested cherries, truffles and vine leaves for some of our most-loved gins.
Home & Heritage
Have you ever tried Mulla Mulla? Did you sample the spices of cinnamon myrtle or enjoy the smooth texture derived from sandalwood nuts? Alongside other traditional gin botanicals, unique ingredients such as native strawberry gum, purple vetch, locally foraged kelp, coastal saltbush, samphire, and many more are carefully chosen to reflect the flavours of our home and heritage. And let’s not forget the most curious ingredient of all, the pheromones of Australian ants! Hand-collected at the sustainable Wooleen station in central Western Australia, resulting in a gin with a flavour that expresses Australia’s rich bio-diverse landscapes.

(03) 5989 2890
Located in the Hinterland of the Mornington Peninsula, it is a well-established, 5th generation, certified Bio-Dynamic apple orchard and processing facility. The family-owned and operated orchard has been producing high quality, Bio-dynamic (enhanced organic) fresh fruit, apple juice, apple ciders and apple cider vinegar for the local region and beyond.
The family continues to nurture and nourish the Demeter-certified orchard, creating a unique range of Bio-dynamic products, inviting the public to visit their Farmgate Store and Cider Lounge.
Our venue is unique to the Mornington Peninsula, a once-renowned region for apple growing. Our venue is a celebration of the apple-growing history in our local area and our beloved family. What was once an original wooden cool-store, built on the orchard in 1945, has been transformed into our Cider Lounge for you to visit, enjoy our craft beverages and share-plate style lunch.
You will find our Farm-gate Store & Cider Lounge amongst our 50+-year-old apple trees on your visit. We have transformed what was once a packing shed into our beautiful Farm-gate Store, where you can purchase our fresh produce and apple products. The Cider Lounge, which was once used to store hundreds of wooden crates of apples, has been converted into a dining area where you can cosy up to our fire in Winter with a hot mulled cider and enjoy our vibrant, vine-covered courtyard with our apple-themed cocktails in Summer.
The core focus at Mock Orchards lies intending to our A-grade apple varieties growing in the orchard. Being certified Biodynamic, produce has been grown to the Australian National Standards of Biodynamic Farming. In addition, we are certified by the Bio-Dynamic Research Institute, ensuring the use of environmentally friendly, ecologically safe, biological methods to activate and nurture the soil, plants and animals within nature's organisation, without the use of artificial chemicals, fertilisers, genetically modified organisms or any unnecessary additives.
The Mock family have been growing apples for five generations. Walter Charles and Wilma Elizabeth Mock moved the family to Red Hill's well-known apple-growing area in 1960 and converted to the Demeter Biodynamic Farming Method in the 70s.
Today our orchardist is Neville Mock (pictured), Wally and Wilma's 4th Son; Neville completed an apprenticeship in fruit growing with his father back in 1981; on completion of his studies, Neville achieved the award for “Outstanding Apprentice” from the Industrial Training Commission of Victoria and later he went on to win Victorias “Farm Entrepreneur of the year” in 1999.
