Welcome to the first distillery to be established in the Margaret River Region. Once a plot of land in 1995, evolving over 20 years of experimentation and innovation, The Grove have created a range of award-winning artisanal spirits in Wilyabrup, WA. They source the best botanicals nearby, or around the world, using barrels which once housed wines, ports or other drops from this region. They've taken their spirits across the globe, winning national and international awards for Organic Absinthe, Coconut Rum, Honey Corn-Mash or Single Malt Whisky, and that’s only naming a few.
The Grove Distillery is located in Wilyabrup, in the heart of the world-class Margaret River Wine Region. The property was purchased in 1995 by Steven Hughes. Steven first started producing wine, planting 30 acres under vine.
He then diversified into spirit-based liqueurs, acquiring a traditional copper still from Germany and establishing the first ever distillery in the Margaret River Wine Region.

The Grove began making vodka, gin and spirit based liqueurs such as limoncello and nocino.  James Reed, a Distiller who had recently immigrated to Australia and landed in the region soon joined the team and today The Grove are making a variety of awarded spirits.

The Grove have been successful in achieving a swag of both national and international awards for their top shelf spirits, organic absinthe and coconut rums (just to name a few), Steven and his head distiller James Reed are not content with only making one or two spirits. You will find a whole variety that pushes boundaries and explores different flavours and methods of producing, particularly when barreling and ageing our spirits in unique ways.

Loved our stay in the accommodation! Perfect spot for a weekend escape, in walking distance of the distillery. Quiet, lots of privacy, views out over the vineyards. Popped in for a tasting of the liqueurs followed by a cheeky cocktail or two (Coffee and Turkish delight martinis were delicious). We came back the next day to cap off a day of winery tastings - tried the whiskeys and picked up some premix cocktails to take away. Will definitely be back! Cafe was closed when we visited. Staff were super lovely to chat with.

Such a great vibe. Banter back and forth and really makes you feel like your in a comfortable and safe place to drink the day away. Can speak highly enough of the owner. Very dry sense of humour (which we found hilarious) but great guy. The liquors we tried were otherworldly. Highly highly recommend

Always an amazing experience here. From the crocodiles to the very tasty liquors. I will always recommend this place to any of my friends and family that go down this way. My only complaint is the price for tastings and that it’s not taken off the total if purchasing a bottle or some kind of minimum spend. Otherwise great great great keep up the good work!!

We stayed in the Bungalow for a weekend get away we found the property clean and well presented. Walked down to the distillery for taste testing the staff was very helpful on explaining to us how everything was made and what barrel each one came from the interior of the distillery is amazing and the gardens are gorgeous. Will definitely be back there.
