Keeping you in good spirits


Whether you’re a spirit connoisseur or simply up for a good time, Join The Distiller for a unique spirit experience with a twist! Catch our expert cocktail makers at the bar or experience one of our many masterclasses we have on offer showcasing our very own GRAINSHAKER Vodka and NED Whisky made here in Melbourne! THE DISTILLER was born with the desire to not only connect the brands and their distillation processes directly with consumers, but to be used as an incubator and innovation hub where TSI can further pursue its research and development programs, including education and collaboration with local distillers to help support Australia’s thriving spirits industry. With our very own functioning micro still and distiller on site, we look to educate and push the boundaries of Australian spirits with our GRAINSHAKER VODKA Distillers Batch series made right here on site.

the makers and shakers behind..


We are curious creators who aren’t afraid to shake things up (literally and figuratively)! We don’t take ourselves too seriously, except when it comes to our whisky and vodka. Our knowledge and expertise, from the field to fermentation and distillation, has taught us there is always something new to learn. We are inspired by traditions but we are not bound by them. Our distillation processes may be timeless but we love putting our own spin on things. NED whisky and Grainshaker vodka are crafted by hand and guided by taste right here in Melbourne, Australia!

Premium spirits that embody the unique personality of Australia


THE DISTILLER is a small (but mighty!) part of a much bigger picture known as TOP SHELF INTERNATIONAL. TSI's ambition is backed by the largest capability to source and distil spirits in Australia. The scale of our operations and vertically integrated production capability means that we are well-placed to compete in our chosen markets. Our current portfolio of brands include NED Australian Whisky, Grainshaker Australian Vodka and our newest Australian Agave project set to launch 2023 . As we focus on scaling our brands, we are also looking forward to our future pipeline of brand and product development.

"I brought my best friend here for his birthday for a cocktail course, where Lionel showed us how to make three of their signature cocktails. AMAZING! Super knowledgeable and charismatic and made it feel like a personal one on one experience rather than a generic master class experience."

Thanks for all your help and making my dream come true!"
