Distillery Tours

Hickson House Distillery is found in a truly unique location. We are based in the heart of The Rocks in Sydney, almost under the iconic Harbour Bridge.

The distillery itself it built in a historic bond building that used to house goods sent to Australia from all over the world. One of Australia’s largest and oldest gantry cranes was located in the building and the steel girders holding up the building are the same used in the building of the Harbour Bridge under which we are located.

The tour takes you through the production and science behind the gin distilling process. Our stills produces all of our award winning gin right on site.

For pre or post dining or drinks, Hickson House also features a full bar and dining room to enjoy while spending some time with us.

Our distillery is easy to get to via ferry, bus, train and tram and there are lots of activities in and around The Rocks to entertain you before or after your tour.


Your tour commences with a welcome drink at our incredible 8 metre high front bar. Most enjoy a Gin and Tonic to take on their distillery tour, but non-alcoholic options are available too.
Next, we take you into our working distillery to discover the process to make our award winning gin. You will learn about the gin making process and the science behind it in a 15-minute tour.
We’ll then move to the bar where we will take you through a tasting of our four core gins, with the option to pair tonic and ice for a mini Hickson House G&T. Our tour guides will also be showing you how to make two easy cocktails to make at home.
All distillery tours come with a $10 discount on any purchase made at our distillery cellar door, which stocks all of our gin products, Hickson House merchandise and a few exciting pantry and drink cabinet staples.
