Calling all gin fanatics, if you haven’t heard of Pomona Distilling Co. on the Sunshine Coast, we urge you to take a weekend trip up to the hinterland in order to sample some of Queensland’s finest. However if you’re a little too busy right now to make the drive and just can’t wait, we have good news—the distillery has come to Brisbane, with a pop-up gin bar in Teneriffe available for private events for December.
Taking over a warehouse on Commercial Road for just three weeks, Pomona Distilling Co has brought enough gin down from the Sunny Coast to set up a gin-tastic events space, where you can sip gin cocktails and even take a bottle or two home with you—whether to gift or to keep all for yourself.
Open Thursday to Saturday right up until 24 December, the pop-up bar will be shaking up some specialty cocktails, including classics like the aptly named Pomona Spritz, an espresso martini, and a southside. But if cocktails aren’t your thing or you consider yourself a bit of a gin connoisseur then you should opt for one of the gin tasting paddles, and sip your way through the distillery’s many gins with a bottle of tonic supplied in case you’re not hard core. The spirited gin blends you’ll sample include their Signature Dry, Pomona Pink and Butterfly-Pea Blue, all arranged on a ‘grammable paddle.
Distilled and bottled from the family owned ditillery’s nature reserve in the Noosa Hinterland, you’ll not only be supporting a local business but also sipping on a gin we can guarantee is created with love and care. Whilst Pomona’s star is their gin of course, the distillery also produces vodka, meaning your gin-adverse friends will find something to drink behind the bar as well.
So if you need some last minute Christmas party plans, or you've got friends and fam coming from all over and you want to show them a night on the town, book yourself an event at the pop-up so you can head on over to 132 Commercial Road in Teneriffe, sip on a spritz or two and pick yourself up a bottle to take home. Get in touch with the team to book here.
When: 3pm–10pm, Thursday to Saturday until 24 December
Where: 132 Commercial Road, Teneriffe
