BACK WHEN GIN WAS A GORDON’S AND A SLICE OF LEMON, WE EMBARKED ON CAREERS THAT TOOK US TO HONG KONG WHERE EXPERIENCING THE FLAVOURS OF GIN WAS ALMOST OUR NATIONAL PASTIME. FAST FORWARD A DECADE OF RESEARCH AND STUDYING THE ART OF DISTILLING, WE RETURNED TO AUSTRALIA TO EMBARK UPON THE PURSUIT OF GIN-EXCELLENCE, CREATING A RANGE OF GINS THAT ARE A MATCH FOR ANY MOOD OR MOMENT.
AT HOME IN ADELAIDE, WITH OUR DISTILLERY NESTLED IN THE INFAMOUS ADELAIDE HILLS, THE FRESHEST AND PUREST BOTANICALS, CITRUS AND SPRING WATER ARE OFTEN WITHIN A STONE’S THROW, AND THE PEOPLE WHO HELP TO CREATE MORE OF THE MAGIC, SIT SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH US, AS NEIGHBOURS. STARTING FROM SQUARE ONE, HAS NEVER BEEN STRAIGHT LINE. IS THE JOURNEY BEGINNING? ENDING? RESTARTING? THE END ALWAYS BEGINS WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF TURNING BACK.

Deep in the Adelaide Hills is a place to escape, to leave it all behind and get back to what’s important – back to Square 1. At our cellar door, by yourself or with like-minded friends, you can experience our small batch gins, whisky and rum. Pair your drink with a perfectly matched tonic selected from our curated collection of mixers and settle back with a hand selected range of tapas styled cured meats, cheeses and fish. Can’t decide? Then take your seat and order a paddle of gins, which will guide you through the full Square 1 gin experience, botanicals and all.
Take the time to wander through our maze of gin, and just when you’re ready to travel again, reach for our near and far wine menu, showcasing the best of the Adelaide Hills as well as a hand selected list from abroad including Chablis, Barolo and Burgundy. Square 1 is a great place to start. But really, why would you ever want to leave?Food & Drink
