Magpie Distilling

One of Australia’s most highly awarded small craft distilleries, Magpie Distilling produces Gins and Liqueurs in the Upper Hunter.

Magpie Distilling was born out of a yearning to do something creative, authentic and whole bunch of fun.  Established in 2020 but conceived not only as a concept but as a burning desire years earlier, it is owned and run by just us, Nikki and Geoff Drummond.  As two former Sydney residents, this is our transition from the corporate world to something inspiring, local, challenging and satisfying – quintessentially Murrurundi.
