Our doors are open all year round
You’ll find The Hoochery at the end of a stunning scenic drive that winds its way through the Ord River Valley, our rusted old shed standing in striking contrast to the beautiful Kimberley surroundings.
And there’s nowhere else we’d rather be.
Drop on by and have a taste of all our spirits, poke around the Distillery and see how we make our spirits, or head to our café for a meal and a slice of our famous Ord River Rum Cake. We’re here for you all year round.
The Hoochery Café
After your rum tasting you can stay for a bit and enjoy a relaxing lunch at our café. You can’t go past the wild Barramundi and local-favourite, roast pumpkin and chia salad, or for something heartier you can get stuck in to a big helping of Spike’s Famous Beans and Corn Bread.
The kids can play in our Hoochery Cubby House while you enjoy a coffee and a slice of our famous Ord River Rum Cake, cheesecake, or one of the other homemade treats we’ve got for you—including ice cream for the kids.
The café’s open all year round for coffee and cake, unfortunately we have not been able to open our kitchen this year due to COVID-19
So stay a while, and see why we love so much up here.
Cellar door and rum tasting
Our cellar door is open all year round so you can drop on by any time and taste our spirits.

Our small pot distillery was made entirely by hand, by us. Spike used to joke that it’s the ugliest still in the world.
While it might not be the world’s prettiest still, it’s ours, and we’d love to show you around.
Come and discover the secrets behind how we make our rum, discover what we mean when we talk about the Angel’s nip, and hear the stories we collected over the years.
We run tours daily, at 11am and 2pm, so you can come and see it for yourself, and have a poke around where we make our rum.
