“Exceptional small batched spirits”
Following travelling the world for over six years, working overseas vintages and exploring the world of distilling, Sacha La Forgia founded Adelaide Hills Distillery.
Sacha is passionate about crafting spirits using Australian produce and values quality above all else.
In 2016, Adelaide Hills Distillery teamed up with Steve Dorman and Toby Kline of The Hills Cider Company, uniting two locally minded liquor companies and helping to drive the distillery forward.
Adelaide Hills Distillery have quickly earned a national and international reputation for producing exceptional small batch spirits.
Most recently, they’ve picked up a Bronze Award for Best International Contemporary Gin at the World Gin Awards, 2019 and a Gold Award for their 78 Degrees Gin as well as a Bronze and Silver for their 78 Degrees Sunset Gin at the World Spirits Competition, 2019.
They’ve previously won Best in Class at the American Distilling Institute Awards, 2017 with their 78 Degrees Gin and have collected many other accolades along their journey.
Virtually unique in Australia, Adelaide Hills Distillery use their own custom-built copper still. With 100% vapour infusion, they have their gin basket after the column which ensures extraction of the botanicals via the purest vapours and lower temperatures to retain delicate, fresh aromas. Each botanical is distilled individually and then blended including many native Australian ingredients.
