Before the beginning of our distillery, we as chefs owned and operated restaurants. Reed & Co was born out of our interest of using the distillation process to create natural oil flavours for our food which in turn lead us to Gin. Establishing the distillery in 2016 at our restaurant Tani Eat & Drink, which closed in 2017 to make room for Reed & Co Distillery - 15 Wills St.
We set out to create gin that is unique and authentic. We as chefs, naturally gravitate towards a focus on flavour and combine many botanicals into our gin to create the complete taste experience.
The distillery itself is situated in the centre of Bright, 15 Wills Street, complete with a bar and a coffee roastery by Sixpence Coffee.
We use a 'Kovodel' Cooper Pot Still to distill our gin which is powered by electricity.
Family owned and operated, we, Hamish Nugent and Rachel Reed are the two creators behind our brand.
After years of being chefs and our interest growing with gin, we have committed full time to the distillery since 2017 and the excitment of creating new, harmonious gin.
We focus on traditional distilling methods, quality ingredients/ botanicals, which go hand in hand with balancing of flavours.
Drink & Eat
On site, we have created an intimate and causal bar. We serve our flagship, Remedy Gin cocktails alongside other craft distillery products as well as other craft beers and wine.
