The Never Never Distillery Door operates within the Chalk Hill Collective site in beautiful McLaren Vale.

Book a table to enjoy our award winning gins - choose from one of our popular gin & tonic tasting flights or sample a few of our in-house gin cocktails made by our talented team of bartenders.

While you're here, you can also visit our friends at Chalk Hill Winery and purchase delicious Italian street food from Cucina di Strada!

The Chalk Hill Collective is currently open seven days a week:

Monday - Thursday : 11am - 5pm 

Friday : 11am - 10pm

Saturday & Sunday : 11am - 6pm


Click here to reserve a table - bookings are highly recommended at this time as we operate under restricted venue numbers.

Please note that the largest group we are currently able to accomodate at our distillery door is ten people. We are unable to split larger groups over several bookings.

We are currently working on our large group booking and functions offering, and hope to be launching this in Winter 2021. If you’d like to be the first to know when then goes live please sign up for our email subscriber list - we’ll be letting our database know as soon as this is available.



Our $25pp booking deposit includes a self-guided gin and tonic flight, which includes half-measure serves of three of our favourite products with garnishes and tonic matched by our distillers.


If you would prefer to not have a gin flight during your visit please email prior to the day of your booking and we can transfer your deposit into a tab to spend on other delicious Never Never drinks.

Booking deposits for our Friday evening Twilight Sessions will automatically be put towards a drinks tab.

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.

We don’t allow BYO food (including birthday cakes), drinks, furniture, picnic rugs, balloons or any other decorations onsite.

We do think this spot would be amazing for weddings, but we don’t currently take wedding bookings.

You can celebrate any event you like with us as long as you are respectful to everyone else on site. We reserve the right to refuse entry or remove people not following this guideline.

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.

If you trust your dog around food and children then please feel free to bring with you. Please note that dogs are welcome on the lawn only, will have to remain on a leash and you are responsible for them at all times.

Licensed vehicles of any sort are not welcome. Groups that arrive on buses or mini-buses that have not been arranged with management, or groups that arrive in vehicles that are licensed to serve alcohol onboard, will be turned away on arrival.
