Melbourne’s Patient Wolf to open Victoria’s largest independent gin distillery in September 2019
Patient Wolf Distilling Co., an independent boutique gin producer currently based in Brunswick, Victoria will soon open the doors to a new distillery and bar located in Melbourne’s Southbank. Bucking the trend in Australia for regional-based distilleries, Patient Wolf are proudly moving their hand-crafted gin production closer to the heart of the city.
Patient Wolf co-founders and distillers Matt Argus and Dave Irwin are currently leading the renovation of a red brick industrial warehouse at 34-36 Market Street, an inner-city side street which straddles the Southbank and South Melbourne border. The working distillery and bar will become the largest independent distillery in Victoria.
Slated to open in early September 2019, Patient Wolf’s new venue will offer guests the opportunity to taste Patient Wolf gins from their new world-class bar, go behind the scenes at the fully functioning distillery, and join intimate gin masterclasses to learn more about the distilling process.
The 30-pax venue will offer a seasonal drinks menu featuring gin and tonics, classic cocktails such as a negroni or a gin martini, alongside more experimental gin combinations, each with a distinctly Melbourne style. Patient Wolf gins will also be available for retail, including limited-edition and distillery-only releases.
The urban distillery will be the new home for Patient Wolf’s existing 220L Müller copper still (considered the ‘Bentley’ of stills), with a state-of-the-art 1000L still due to arrive from Germany and join production early next year. When the new still arrives, the Patient Wolf distillery is expected to be Australia’s largest urban gin distillery.
The Patient Wolf distillery and bar will open to the public from early September 2019. Thursdays and Fridays 4.00pm – 8.00pm and Saturdays and Sundays 10.00am – 5.00pm.
