University House Members and Guests are invited to a Masterclass featuring the Adelaide Hills Distillery range of Gins, spirits and Ciders.
In 2014 Adelaide Hills Distillery was founded by Sacha La Forgia, a local wine maker who traveled the world for over 6 years working wine vintages and exploring the world of distilling. On his travels throughout Italy he met his mentor, ‘The Italian’, who encouraged him to return to Australia and start his own distillery.
Hand crafting a copper still from the ground up, Sacha is passionate about crafting spirits using Australian produce and values quality above all else.
In 2015 Sacha launched his first product, 78˚ Gin, a London Dry style gin sourced using many native Australian ingredients, some from our own backyard in The Adelaide Hills, quickly earning him a reputation for producing exceptional small batch spirits.
After a successful first year, in 2016 Adelaide Hills Distillery teamed up with Steve Dorman and Toby Kline of The Hills Cider Company . Backed by an independent like minded local company, The Adelaide Hills Distillery range continues to grow, driven by quality, Australian ingredients, and always with an Australian twist.
As is usual, it is Free for Members and $10 for Guests.
