What an amazing day and long weekend!! We officially opened the doors of Envy Distilling’s home in Ladys Pass today and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It was World Gin Day, and also the annual Heathcote on Show regional event - both bringing lots of visitors and buzz to our distillery door to check it out.
With friends coming from Melbourne and interstate (Brisbane & Sydney) to help us celebrate, and all the fabulous locals and neighbours popping by to wish us well and try our gins, it truly is a day we’ll remember. We feel so loved and grateful to have all of their support and for sharing this journey with us.
We were also honoured to have attendance from City of Greater Bendigo, with our local representative Councillors Matthew Evans and Greg Penna officiating with a ribbon cutting ceremony, and welcoming speech. We are greatly appreciative of their interest, support and taking time out of their weekends for us.
Thank you also to everyone who sent us beautiful messages of congratulations, just knowing you’re thinking of us brings a smile to our faces.
We have a little more work to do and will be closed for a few weeks to get ready for regular hours, which will be both Saturday and Sunday each weekend. We hope to see you at the distillery soon!
