Frequently Asked Questions

What drinks can I buy at the distillery? 

We offer our tasting flights on (almost) every day of the year! If you'd prefer to just have a few casual drinks at the distillery rather than a tasting you can absolutely do that as well. Click HERE to view a sample menu. 

Please note that Chalk Hill Wines, Cucina di Strada and Never Never Distilling Co. are separate businesses that all operate within the Chalk Hill Collective site.

Your deposit can be used for any purchase from the Never Never Distillery Door, but cannot be used for purchases from the other businesses onsite.

Delicious Italian street food, coffee and sweets are provided at the Chalk Hill Collective by Cucina di Strada. This can be ordered, paid for and collected at their counter, which is located adjacent to our venue.
