Who We Are:

Larrikin Gins and Liqueurs are produced by Kilderkin Distillery, a small distillery located in the historical city of Ballarat. The city has a long history of distilling, both illicit and licit, with the first legal distillery in the colony of Victoria producing gin and whisky from the 1860s until it closed in the mid-1930s.

For us it started over 10 years ago following a lifelong interest in distilling. After a few years of dreams and a few more of careful planning, we fulfilled our ambition by launching our first gins in 2017, thus adding another chapter to distilling in Ballarat.

What We Do:

We produce high-quality spirits that satisfy any gin lovers, ranging from those who drink their gin neat to those who prefer to add mixers or create craft cocktails. There is something for everyone, no matter how you choose to enjoy
your drink.
We have a large range of gins and liqueurs to choose from, and plan to launch our whisky during 2022. We also have options for arranging gift-giving, including for weddings, businesses or special events, with purpose-made gift
packages. We have relocated to Mount Pleasant in Ballarat, and will open our Distillery Door at the beginning of summer 2021. We will be offering gin flights and masterclasses.

The Cellar Door is currently closed as we have just relocated in Ballarat. We look forward to         welcoming you at our new Cellar Door sometime during summer 2021.

We continue to process online orders.  Just go to our online store, add your gin selections to the cart and proceed to check out.

If you live in the Ballarat region you can also get the full range of our gins from Campana’s Cellar on the corner of Mair and Armstrong Streets.

And we attend the Ballarat Farmers Market in Zoo Drive (Lake Wendouree) on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 9am to 1pm.
