5Nines Distilling

Two guys, David Pearse and Steven Griguol, with one sole passion – to create the perfect spirit. At 5Nines we’re all about trying to achieve perfection. 5Nines - 99.999% perfection.

We are a small batch distillery located in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, specialising in hand crafted single malt whisky, gin and other premium spirits.

With some help from our friends, we were able to design and build our own copper pot still. Our still has been designed specifically to give a unique one of a kind flavour profile to the whisky. We have also repurposed a stainless-steel vat into a mash tun to allow us full control of the brewing process. We have used the best of our unique talents in engineering, design and craftsmanship to bring this 5Nines dream to life.

Operating on a small scale allows us to carefully monitor the quality control of every aspect of the brewing, distilling and spirit maturation process.

We use the finest malted South Australian barley which is run through our small batch grist mill to ensure the full malt flavour profile is extracted from the grain for our single malt whisky.

The distillery was founded in 2016, since then, we have ever so carefully been putting away whisky to age in selected premium casks. Our single malt whisky is primarily made with locally malted barley. Some then smoked with South Australian peat to bring a deeper flavour to the whisky.

More recently, we have been passionately working on a range of other spirits including some very distinctively flavoured gins.
