The Spanish roots of Joadja Distillery have not only allowed them to import the finest Sherry Casks into Australia, but they also come filled with the highest quality Sherry. They come in the country in 60L casks and then are decanted and bottled.
The cask is then repurposed and used for maturing Whisky and Rum at Joadja. Try chilling this bottle for a fabulous taste.

Established in 2014 this real gem of a distillery is located in the heritage listed town called Joadja Town. The township was first established in the 1870’s by the Australia Kerosene Oil and Mineral Co, who brought hundreds of Scottish oil shale miners over with them, who also had their knowledge in making sly Grog.
In 1911 the once thriving town of 1,200 people come to an end as the process to get the Kerosine became uneconomical. The township passed many hands and in 1999 became heritage listed. The current owners Elisa and Valero (Val) Jimenez set up the Distillery in 2014 and worked hard to maintain the preservation of the township while time sharing to make their fabulous whisky, rum, gin, liqueurs and sherry. As their suggests they are of Spanish origin and have the ability to source the finest ex-Oloroso & ex-Ppedro Ximenez Sherry butts from Spain. Their uniqueness only continues as Val has also been growing their own barley on premises which is used in some of their releases of whisky.
At Joadja they use a 2,500L Wash still; a 800L Spirit still; and a 500L Gin still. All are electrically driven as they focus on reducing their carbon foot print.
Tours of the Distillery including Joadja Creek are made by appointment only.
