Following the success of the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards’ distilled spirits and liqueurs award, the RASV has created a stand-alone event to provide Australian producers of distilled spirits and liqueurs, with an essential benchmarking opportunity, to celebrate the excellence of Australian distillation and spirits making and give Australian spirits producers the opportunity to promote their spirits and liqueurs to industry and consumers.
The awards recognises the long tradition of distillation in Australia as well as the new generation of spirits and liqueur producers who have emerged over the last decade. Created in close consultation with industry experts, the new awards are reflective of an increased consumer interest and market trends and highlights the innovation and excellence demonstrated by Australian distillers.

We also have (amongst others) Absinthe, Yellow Strega (Yellow Galliano) and Apparg (Grappa) for the adventurous.

Castle Glen Brewery's summer range of light beers such as Pale Ale, Pilsener, Wheat Beers and Lagers are a real hit with our loyal clientele. During the cooler months, Castle Glen Brewery watches over the maturing of our Autumn / Winter line-up of Draught Beer, Dark Ales such as Black Granite, and Stout. We have also added a range of Gluten-Free Beers - so there is something for everyone.
Castle Glen has always been renowned for offering alternatives to the usual alcohol line up - whether that be in Wine, Fortifieds or Liqueurs - and our Beer selection is no different. We have recently released some specialty Beers made from local Stanthorpe fruit. Cedric has been weaving his magic and put together several beers made from strawberries and cherries for those who love to try something a little bit different.
