Granddad Jacks Craft Distillery


The Gold Coast’s only Craft Gin and Whisky Distillery is located just two minutes walk from the North Burleigh Surf Life Savings Club.

Built with upcycled materials, this old surfboard warehouse has been converted to expose a raw and rustic, one of a kind distillery.

David and Luke Ridden are recreating age-old family recipes in memory of David’s Grandfather and Luke’s Great Grandfather.

Each of their spirits are handcrafted and made from locally or nationally sourced raw materials. Production is on full show to visitors from the Tasting Room and Distillery Tours and tastings are available over the weekend.

Learn about the history of Granddad Jack and enjoy a complimentary Gin and Tonic on arrival and tastings of their three flagship Gins throughout the tour. Book online through their website.

Each Gin is available by the bottle or can be enjoyed in one of their exclusive Tasting Room Cocktails. The Whisky continues to age with a Bourbon, Peated and Single Malt due for release late 2019.

When inside, you can smell the aromas of the botanicals and the whiskey as it seeps through the American Oak barrels surrounding you.

A must-see Gold Coast Destination.


Some listings are here because we think they’re pretty cool and you should know about them! And some, we just haven’t quite got enough info to make the ‘Good Access’ call yet.. so to answer the question, a business could be listed on our site if:

A. The business indicates they have some accessible facilities, but we haven’t quite gotten around to chatting through the details, stay tuned! If you’ve been here, leave a review and let us know about your experience!

B. We have spoken to their team.. the facilities aren’t quite what we’d call accessible BUT we’ve provided you with ‘good to know’ tips in case you’re keen to give it a go anyway!
