A trio of modified shipping containers house our beautifully crafted 1100L copper pot still along with our laboratory, bottling line, storage space, barrel house, and everything else that comes with the everyday running of the distillery. The idea of fitting out a couple of steel boxes came to us naturally, as we are enthusiastic about implementing the environmentally sustainable model of reuse, recycle and restore as much as possible.
This ethos carries through into the distillery in a lot of aspects, such as reusing steel for construction, reducing waste, and finding ways to utilise remaining waste product instead of just sending it down the drain or into the bin.
Another aspect of our personal lives that carries over into 7K Distillery is getting out into the wild and foraging for native botanicals, such as those that we use in our gin. There comes a particular satisfaction with searching for and learning about the native produce that our state has to offer.
We’ve found that with so many different varieties of plants, fruits, and seeds available to us, the process becomes like a puzzle: we get to choose the pieces and figure out how they fit together by studying their characteristics, and experimenting to discover how they can be blended to create something beautiful.
From strawberry eucalyptus to wild fennel and pepperberry, Tasmania’s native produce is wholly unique, a characteristic which is passed on to our product.
