Inspired by whisky makers
At Buffalo Vale we make our spirits by hand, from scratch. We always begin by fermenting our own pure water wash, which is distilled into an incredibly smooth base spirit.
Founded on the banks of Buffalo Creek, a tributary of Sydney harbour, Buffalo Vale Distillery is a producer of hand-made small batch craft spirits.
We live in the small valley of Buffalo Creek, in Sydney's north, and this is where our craft distillery was founded in spring of 2016.
After years travelling, enjoying and working with beer, wine and spirits, four friends travelling through Tasmania found themselves pinned down by inclement weather.
Braving the elements to explore the local distilleries, embracing their warmth and hospitality, the idea was born to bring the craft of distilling to our home town, in Boronia Park. The conversations and flavours that flowed became the inspiration for Buffalo Vale Distillery.
Our founding values are simplicity, ingenuity, purity, and quality.
Beginning with pure and natural raw materials, we aim to create spirits that allow a moment of pause that comes so rarely in our busy world.
We love sharing, learning, and being creatively inspired by our community.
Our process closely follows that of the traditional whisky distillers, beginning by fermenting our own pure water based wash, which is then distilled into an incredibly smooth base spirit.
We then re-distill our base spirit to infuse the flavours of the selected home-grown botanicals which have been blended to reflect the gentle character of our locale.
