Wolf Lane Distillery

Born from a passion 

Created in paradise! 

The Wolf Pack 

Cairns in Tropical North Queensland is known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and ancient rainforest of the Daintree, not to mention its sultry weather and laidback lifestyle. These days the city is also known as the home of one of Australia’s most awarded boutique craft gin makers: Wolf Lane Distillery. 

Take a stroll down a certain red brick laneway in the heart of the Cairns CBD and you’ll find what used to be an old horse stable from the early 1900s. But step inside the heavyset wooden doors and you’ll discover something very different: the city’s very first gin distillery. Established in 2019 by the innovative team behind the region’s best small bars - including the award-winning Three Wolves – Wolf Lane Distillery is the go-to destination for any self-respecting gin lover visiting or living in Cairns. 

All Wolf Lane products are crafted with care and love on-site with help from our custom eight-plate column still; Column Farrell – a pun on the actor Colin Farrell. Our focus in crafting our gin is centred on locally sourced ingredients, with infusions of mango, grapefruit, orange and finger lime. We first steep our dry botanicals for 24 hours in our clean spirit before fresh botanicals are added to the copper gin basket, allowing them to be vapour infused into the gin.

Gin and Tonic

We produce our double gold medal-winning Tropical Gin, along with our highly awarded Navy Strength gin, which heroes juniper and macadamia and our best-selling Wolf Lane Davidson Plum Gin - a tropical take on a traditional sloe gin. 

Our passion is creating spirits that pay homage to our home here in Tropical North Queensland and its incredible selection of botanicals. With a focus on supporting local farmers and growers that opt for sustainable and organic farming, ensuring the freshest produce is used. 

An ethos we carry over to our Wolf Lane Barista Coffee Liqueur. We blend single-origin, locally grown coffee, and vanilla to make an incredibly smooth, full-bodied coffee liqueur recognised globally as one of the best. 

Our distillery features a bar and cellar door, where we host tastings, gin masterclasses and serve delicious gin cocktail creations. Wolf Lane Distillery brings you a truly unique range of modern Australian gins that represent the tropical paradise we live in. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
