Key Recap.

  • After tasting what was on the market the Seadrift team wanted to create something that captured all that costal Australia has to offer in a glass.
  • The Seadrift Distillery team use handmade copper pots sourced from Portugal.
  • Both of the products in the Seadrift Distillery range are made with fresh herbs local to the Brookvale region and are distilled fresh daily and typically within the hour of arriving at the distillery!
  • Seadrift Classic was created to capture the fresh and crisp marine notes that we’re all so familiar with after diving in for a sea swim on a hot summers day.
  • Seadrift Coast brings more familiar juniper and woody notes while fresh basil brings balancing sweetness to your glass.
  • The Seadrift crew have their distillery at 12 Sydneham Rd, Brookvale, NSW 2100
