Little Lon Distilling Co.

(458 Reviews)

Once the slums and red-light district of nineteenth century Melbourne, Little Lon was often associated with sly grog trading, petty crime and prostitution. With the laneways, once lined with modest timber and brick cottages, shops and small factories playing home to a motley population of early Melbournians.

 Little Lon Distilling Co. acknowledges this rich history with a range of characterful gins that commemorate the delightful deviates that once lurked these lurid lanes. It’s our double-distilled tribute to a hood once alive with bordellos, dance halls, bohemians, opium dens, and gangsters whose history is fast receding into the mists of time. It’s our way of keeping Little Lon’s spirit alive.

We had the most incredible Masterclass at Little Lon. This gorgeous tiny distillery and bar is the perfect marriage of Melbourne’s laneway culture, emerging gin snd distilling scene, and complex migrant history. There was just two of us and we got a bar-side experience. The staff were so friendly and engaging. Their passion for gin, for bar tending and for distilling shone through. The gins are like bothing I’ve ever tasted, the malted barley gives them a really complex and distinct flavour. The cocktails were so delicious we got extras!! I will be back again and again. And I now have a delicious bottle of barrel aged Dutchy Thomas to enjoy at home!

I’ve been to many wine, beer, and whisky/bourbon tastings. This was my first gin tasting. It was great to learn about gin and the history of the Little Lon area. Great information on the local history and the gin was amazing. I loved the stories tied to each varietal. The staff was knowledgable, friendly, and did a great job sharing information.

Excellent class. We really enjoyed the story and history behind the location and Gins made by Little Lon. The Gin and outdoor area were really relaxed and made a great afternoon atmosphere.
