Craft Distilleries – Go Behind the Scenes at Shene Estate


Credit: Rob Burnett

The taste of Southern Wild Gin is drawn from wild rivers and perfected with botanicals handpicked in Paradise.

Craft distilleries are gaining traction around the country as fantastic destinations – providing curious tasters with a range of esoteric flavours to choose from and usually a glimpse into the process itself.

One such Distillery is the Shene Estate. It provides a unique attraction, offering not only tastings but a glimpse into what life is like in rural Tassie.
