Patient Wolf Distilling Co successfully crossed the Yarra in 2019, moving from its Brunswick warehouse to a slick new space in Southbank that functions as both a distillery and a bar.
Patient Wolf's distillery seats 30 and serves an extensive menu of gin and tonics and classic, gin-based cocktails alongside an experimental cocktail menu designed to highlight the gins (including a vivid green snow pea cocktail). If you fall in love with one of the distillates, you can also purchase it at retail price to take home.
The Southbank site now houses the distillery's existing 220L Müller copper still, with a 1000L still due to arrive from Germany in early 2020. If we're doing the maths correctly, once the German still arrives, Patient Wolf will have the capacity to produce the largest volume of gin out of any independent, urban distillery.
