Bickfords group to open new $6.6 million Renmark distillery
Bickford’s Group will open its new $6.6 million distillery and visitor centre in Renmark on Friday, September 23 2016.
When opened by South Australian Tourism Minister Leon Bignell at precisely 11.23am, it will serve as the company’s premier distillery offering a new range of craft spirits, focused on gin and brandy.
“It’s a great day for South Australia because we’re using local produce wherever available, adding a new ‘must see’ tourist destination to this beautiful region and creating dozens of jobs for locals,” said Bickford’s Group managing director Angelo Kotses.
The launch will also be marked in Adelaide. The city event kicks off at 6.23pm at a replica ‘pop up’ distillery experience in Rundle Mall featuring cocktails, fresh Renmark produce prepared by Mount Lofty Ranges Vineyard chef, Matt Fitton. Bickford’s Group Brand Ambassador Shaun Pattinson will also be on hand to showcase the distillery’s cocktails.
