Potato Vodka - Small Batch Distillery

Red Dirt Distillery is a specialty business located on the Dorrigo Plateau. We are renowned for the production of unique alcoholic products of exceptional quality, using local and regional fruits and Dorrigo red dirt Sebago potatoes.

All our products are handcrafted and produced in small production runs, made without the addition of colourings, artificial flavourings or preservatives. The majority of our liqueurs are styled on classic Italian sweet liqueurs, but are made using our own spirits and recipes for infusions of herbs, flowers and fruits. The entire process is undertaken "in house", using raw ingredients sourced from the local area and region.

A dedicated research effort is continually developing new and interesting products, in both our fermentation and distillation departments as well as our foods and preserves sections. Over summer 2014/15 we commenced production of natural ice creams using our liqueurs and spirits - a unique taste sensation served in a waffle cone!! This winter we are making our own confectionery, spiked with liqueurs and spirits!!

We also proudly acknowledge our cooking heritage and have re-created timeless classic preserves such as chutneys, jams, marmalades, wine jellies, sauces and vinegars as well as cordials and flavoured salts.
