From this place, we’ve created a blend that’s distinctly our own. Two decades of innovation, improvement and experimentation, culminating in the Spirit we share with you.
The Grove Distillery is located in Wilyabrup, in the heart of the world-class Margaret River Wine Region. The property was purchased in 1995 by Steven Hughes. Steven first started producing wine, planting 30 acres under vine.
He then diversified into spirit-based liqueurs, acquiring a traditional copper stil from Germany and establishing the first ever distillery in the Margaret River Wine Region.
Meet The Founder
Born in Harrow, London, Steve worked in the high flying world of finance and insurance for 11 years. In a Mid-life crisis, he created The Grove Vineyard with his family in 1995 before realising his 17 years experience working as a Metro fuel distributor in Perth paved the way for another form of rocket fuel… Spirits. Today he’s a Jack-of-all-Trades, Distiller, Brewer, Entertainer, Host, and a myriad of other roles.
