Queensland Distillers Association (QDA) is the state body that supports and advocates for the specific needs of craft distillers in Queensland. The committee is involved in extensive lobbying with state government bodies around issues and challenges that are unique to Queensland distillers – it is your local voice to improve the operating environment of craft distillers in Queensland.
With the support of its members, Queensland Distillers Association works tirelessly to ensure that Queensland spirits are marketed as being world-class, and we will continue to sit around the table of Queensland government forums and industry groups to advocate for better funding and regulations.
At the same time, with representation on the Australian Distillers committee, QDA will continue to align with the national association to raise issues impacting distillers Australia-wide, including advocacy to the federal government on issues such as fairer taxation for craft distillers, and national recognition of craft distilling as a powerful economic and export driver.
