Brian McGuigan and Colin Peterson have restored the “The Ben Ean Distillery” as a tribute to the winemaking heritage of Ben Ean.

The Ben Ean distillery was built by John McDonald in 1907 and operated until 1963 to produce Brandy Spirit which was in turn used to produce fortified wine.

The distillery, known affectionately as “The Still House” has undergone an extensive refurbishment and is now open to VIP’s and their guests.
