The Whiskery / Bellarine Distillery
Bellarine Distillery was established in 2015 by Russ Watson & Lorelle Warren and is the first Distillery on the Bellarine Peninsula and the first in the greater Geelong region since the closure of Corio Distillery in the 1980’s. The idea originated - as most great ideas do - after a couple of alcoholic beverages. Having visited Scotland in 2012 and the romance of the highlands, the concept of starting our own distillery seemed like a good idea. It took a further 3 years to take delivery of our 1st Still “Ronald” then another 3 to complete work on our distillery door and open to the public.
