The History of the 23rd Street Distillery
23rd Street Distillery is the new incarnation of a century-old landmark at 23rd Street, Renmark. The distillery was built by Barossa firm Chateau Tanunda in 1914 to take advantage of burgeoning Riverland harvests. No expense was spared in the design and construction of this imposing building and its production plant. However, Chateau Tanunda had sunk too much into it and found itself sinking into financial ruin. This could have been disastrous for the local grape growers. They’d quickly become dependent on the distillery buying their fruit.
But beneath the gloom was opportunity. Could the growers cut out the middle man and run the distillery themselves? Around 130 fruit growers banded together to form The Renmark Growers’ Distillery Company Limited and purchase the facilities. It was the first cooperative of its kind in Australia, a great success and a huge boost to the local Riverland community.
A series of mergers and takeovers unfortunately led to a rapid decline in activity at 23rd Street, until it ceased all production in 2002. But the spirit lingered. Enter our new team in 2016, fuelled by fresh creative passion, Riverland heart and a taste for the future – Read more on 23rd Street Distillery.
