Backwoods Distilling Co. was founded by Leigh and Bree Attwood in 2017. Both were raised in North East Victoria, and returned to the region with their young family after years of city-living, working and travelling. A love of whisky, science and craftiness soon evolved into a dream to open a distillery. Backwoods Distilling Co. is the culmination of this dream. They are passionate about creating high quality spirits that vividly capture the flavours of Victoria’s High Country, and aim to put Victoria on the map as a premier craft spirits destination.

The true star of the distillery is their copper-pot still. ‘Stillvester’ is a one of a kind creation, built by Burns Welding and Fabrication in Griffith, NSW. Together, they purposefully designed the 1250L Stillvester to create a spirit that is both complex and refined.

Backwoods sources their malted grains from Voyager Craft Malt in the nearby Riverina region. Voyager Craft Malt produce small batch, single origin artisan malts for craft brewers and distillers. Voyager source their grain from local, independent growers and use sustainable agricultural practices.

Backwoods' spent grain is delivered to a local farm for animal feed, completing the circle and making our distillery virtually waste-free.

Backwoods' barrels are hand selected from the Australian whisky and wine industries. Their fleet include 100 and 200 litre casks that have previously held whisky, red or fortified wines.
