Yack Creek Distillery was established in 2016 after 2 friends discussed business opportunities while sitting on a beach in Western Australia. Both had a passion for whisky and rum and decided to explore the possibilities of how they could make their own. This idea became a hobby but soon developed into a business decision and thus an ambitious dream of creating a micro distillery.


Yack Creek Distillery is situated 2 kilometers out of the township of Yackandandah in Victoria's High Country - on acreage with the Creek to the east and the Stanley State forest to the south. The creek, once a mecca for settlers endeavouring to fill their pockets with gold, flows all year round and includes brown trout and the Murray Spiny Crayfish. Hence the logo was born from the Crayfish head.


Yack Creek whisky is made from 100% Australian malted barley, and starts out as small batches of 500kg of grain, which is ground directly prior to mashing.


Join Whisky Flights this February as Yack Creek's distiller and co-founder, Jaime, travels up to Canberra to chat with us as we sample his delicious whisky.
