NSW | ACT Distillers Association

Providing strong and vibrant advocacy for the growing craft distilling industry in NSW and ACT.



NSW | ACT Distillers aims to provide added value to the NSW|ACT distilling industry by:

    • promoting its members, 
    • lobbying for industry reforms, 
    • engaging and lobbying for state and territory government support, 
    • facilitating peer support, and 
    • seeking opportunities to enhance the distillers' economic growth and market reach. 

Its primary focus is on creating a collective voice and leveraging existing resources and support to benefit the industry as a whole.


NSW | ACT Distillers shall begin by looking to short-term measurable goals, we would like to highlight these:

      1. Achieve Partly Funded Executive Officer: NSW | ACT Distillers aims to secure funding or resources to partially support the appointment of an Executive Officer. This role would be dedicated to coordinating and driving the initiatives of NSW | ACT Distillers, such as organising meetings, managing communication, and implementing strategies to achieve NSW | ACT Distillers’ objectives. By securing funding for an Executive Officer, NSW | ACT Distillers can enhance its efficiency and effectiveness in advocating for the industry.
      2. Achieve Investment Funding from NSW & ACT Governments: NSW | ACT Distillers seeks to successfully secure funding from the governments of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory for investments related to cellar door experiences, tourism promotion, and safety enhancements within the distilling industry. This funding would support the development of visitor-friendly experiences, marketing campaigns to attract tourists, and measures to ensure safety and compliance standards are met. By achieving this goal, NSW | ACT Distillers can contribute to the growth of the visitor economy and elevate the profile of NSW/ACT distillers.

These two measurable short-term goals provide clear targets that can be tracked and assessed for progress. They align with NSW | ACT Distillers’ vision and objectives, showcasing a commitment to advancing the industry through strategic initiatives and securing financial support from relevant government bodies.
