Having worked around the globe in the renewable energy industry the Restall family wanted to ensure that they did their bit to hand the world over to the next generation in a better condition than they found it.

Everyone should care about what they are putting into their bodies. Why do people care about where their food comes from but never ask about the provenance or ingredients in their drinks? Lord Byron Distillery is focussed on helping people to take back control of the decision made every time they enjoy a drink, responsibly. Lord Byron Distillery makes its Spirit of Byron drinks in Byron Bay from ingredients predominantly grown and sourced in the Byron region. The water comes from collected rainwater and natural spring water located on the Restall family farm in the Byron Bay hinterland. It is the same water that the Restall family drinks at home on the farm. It is lightly filtered and doesn’t contain the chemicals and additives found in town water. The molasses is sourced from the local sugar mill which is the last farmer owned cooperative in Australia. There are no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives in any Lord Byron Distillery products.
The earliest record of the Restall family in Byron Shire dates back to 1897 when Jack Restall was the local butcher in Billinudgel. Although this fact wasn’t discovered by Brian and Helen Restall until recently, it explains why they have always had a deep sense of affinity with the area and to traditional trade and craftmanship. The farm they purchased has been a family owned business for generations and Brian and Helen continue this tradition with their own family, ensuring the integrity and provenance of their hand-crafted artisanal drinks.
