About Us

 

Reed & Co is a distillery with a bar and restaurant, located in a tourist destination the Victorian alpine valley of Bright.  

Hamish Nugent and partner Rachel Reed founded Reed & Co Distillery in Bright in 2016. Their gin range began

whilst they were at the helm of restaurant Tani Eat & Drink, awarded Good Food Regional Restaurant of the

Year. Intrigued by the way distillation could manipulate the flavours in food, they started experimenting with

botanicals they used in cooking to produce different gins.

Quickly, distilling became the heart of their creative process, and they closed Tani Eat & Drink in 2017 to

focus full-time on the expansion of Reed & Co distillery. Reed & Co is gaining attention as part of the new wave of Australian distillers on the craft gin scene.
