Swan Valley Distillery
The Kimberley Rum Company is known as the Great Northern Distillery in Perth with their sampling room in the Swan Valley. It is a popular stop over during our Swan Valley limo tours when members of the group are spirit drinkers and on hen’s parties.
With a later opening time of 12.00 noon the distillery is better to visit after a lunch break. The popular range of cocktail mixers and rums generate a lot of excitement at hen’s parties and the venue tolerates the high spirits of the patrons. Guests are limited to three drinks at $4 a glass. Partly because the staff have a high tolerance of the party crowds cruising the Swan Valley in 20 – 40 seat party buses it attracts a lot of crowded bus groups over the weekend which can greatly limit the service available to smaller groups (as well as the bus crowds filling the sampling room).
Mid-week the venue is more sedate and the staff are able to discuss the various spirits and better interact with curious visitors. If you include the Great Northern Distillery in your wine tour schedule over a weekend Belle Limousines will book a stop over, but be prepared for unscheduled bus groups filling the venue and making service difficult.
The driveway from the highway is readily accessible for all limousines and buses. The parking area in front of the distillery easily caters for Chrysler limos as well as 50 seat buses. On festival days the number of vehicles can make the car park congested and limousines may need to park on the road verge adjacent to the venue.
Mid-week visits to the distillery in a Rolls Royce limousine or classic Jaguar usually find the car park empty and the staff happy to discuss your questions about the products on offer.
