Moontide is Broome. Broome is Moontide. One is not one without the other.
Our story is one that begins here in Rubibi (Broome), amongst the most ancient lands and sea. But ours is a new story, and we respect and honour the stories told by the peoples that have lived here for many thousands of years. We are always learning from them, and it makes our story a stronger one.
Moontide Distillery is a product of the Kimberley – the extraordinary history, the diversity, the wilderness, the milky turquoise waters and vivid red Pindan dirt. But more than mere landscape, this place has spirit. It’s a spirit we fell in love with, and it has given life to our philosophy of creative endeavour, a pursuit of learning, and striving for perfection. Moontide began with a dream, was given life by the spirit of Broome, and made a reality by the inspiration and passion of our hardworking team.
The Distillery & Cellar Door.
Our distillery and cellar door – the only one in Broome, and one of the most isolated in the world - opened on the first of July 2020. We are immensely proud of our Moontide gins and spirits. They are as unique as the Kimberley; as unique as the pure monsoonal rainwater and local botanicals that flavour every bottle; complex and distinct. So we feel we truly have captured, and created, the ‘spirit of Broome’.
An important part of the Moontide philosophy includes being gentle on the land, and our operations are powered by solar panels and storage batteries. We are proud to be part of the Broome community, and we work with and support the Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation to help build capacity and employment within local communities.
Moontide. The Spirit of Broome.
