Reed & Co Distillery

Reed & Co Distillery is a family-owned and operated craft distillery in the alpine town of Bright N.E Victoria.

Our passion for the N.E landscape has translated into our guiding philosophy of distilling our landscape.  We produce Australian spirits and experiences that truly represent our location. Botanicals both wild and locally grown are at the heart of our spirits and produce flavour profiles that are worthy of sharing with others.

Our range of uniquely North East spirits began with ‘Remedy Australian Dry Gin’ our signature release, which is a juniper-forward bush gin.


The ‘Spirit Lab’ label is a range of limited-edition collaborations, one off distillates, experimental products, and seasonal releases including the popular seasonal vintages Gin & Juice and Mistelle, a collaboration with local vintners Billy Button Wine.


We hope that our love of artfully crafting spirits provides you with joy and a true North East experience worth returning for or recreating in your home.

Meet the Distillers



The distillery was originally established in 2016 at our hatted Good Food regional restaurant of the year, Tani Eat & Drink. 

We closed the restarant doors in 2017 to make room for Reed & Co Distillery at our new distillery space.

Reed & Co Distillery started out as a chef experimentation.

We had an interest in using the distillation process to create natural oil flavours for our food, but you always need a great drink to accompany good food (or just a good day)

... which in turn lead us to Gin.

We use 2 Cooper Pot Stills to distill our gin.

Molly is the original and we just welcomed our newest addition to the family, Mabel.

The distillery is situated in the centre of Bright at 15 Wills Street. 

An unassuming building which was former mechanics workshop, has been transformed into a welcoming local with indoor and outdoor seating. The space provides a distillery door, bar, and is a shared location with friends, local family business- Sixpence Coffee.

Hamish Nugent and Rachel Reed are the two creators behind Reed & Co Distillery.

As reputable ex-chefs, Hamish & Rachel put the quality of flavour and technique at the core of the product and experience.

Where art & science meet is where these distillers like to play.

They use a combination of traditional distilling methods, and non-traditional techniques with quality local ingredients and botanicals.

Bright, a picturesque village in Victoria's High Country is situated just 3.5 hours out of Melbourne's CBD and in the Alpine region of Victoria.
The town is beside the ovens river, hidden between mountain tops and surrounded by sweeping countrysides and forest.

Bright is a weekend and holiday destination all throughout the year.

It is the perfect spot to take advantage of access to Victoria's alps, national parks, and home-grown food and wine. 

It is a must-visit destination for outdoor enthusiasts and casual getaways alike with great accommodation & outdoor activity in every season including cycling, kayaking or bushwalking in the warmer seasons, or as the perfect base for a trip to the snow at Mt Hotham in the winter. For those who just want to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings, Autumn is the perfect time to visit to enjoy the changing colours of the landscape, witnessing the deciduous trees in their autumnal splendour.

Our distillery sits right in the heart of town alongside breweries, wine cellar doors, cafes and restaurants.
