Backwoods Distilling Co. is a craft operation located in the Victorian High Country region


Working from our Yackandandah distillery, we produce whisky and spirits in small batches using locally sourced ingredients, spring water and a diverse selection of reclaimed barrels. Our aim is to create high-quality spirits that celebrate a unique flavour that only the High Country region can offer. 

We established our small operation in 2017 after years of research, distillery visits and tasting whisky from all over the world. The first casks of our signature whisky began maturation in early 2018.
