Six-Tricks Distilling Co.

What To Expect

Six-Tricks is conveniently located a brief 10-minute walk from the Broadbeach dining precinct, Pacific Fair, and The Star Casino. Our tasting room can accommodate 100 guests inside the bar, outside on our Sunset Deck, in the Beer Garden or private Founders Lounge.

Our family and dog-friendly venue offers gourmet bites from an on-site food truck, from locally sourced charcuterie and mouth-watering bug sliders, to arancini and king prawn and mudcrab toast. Allow this considered gastronomy to complement our in-house production of exceptional spirits, tinctures, sodas and cordials – all made fresh and from scratch each week. With live music every weekend, witness head bartender and mixologist Jimmy’s handmade artisanship as he walks the line between classic cocktails and alchemy in his hyper-seasonal selection of ingredients.

Founded by Chris Macklin and Teagan Peake, Six-Tricks is the Gold Coast’s newest rum and whiskey distillery, tasting room and cocktail bar. It all started eight years ago when Chris, working in sales at the time, attended a bourbon masterclass with his employer. This formative experience led Chris down the distillery path. From a coffee urn in the laundry to a shed and shipping container in the backyard, Chris honed his craft to launch the ambitious Six-Tricks.

Today, our ambition, coupled with state-of-the-art facilities, has led to a unique venue that emphasises local production and fosters creative exploration and education.

Six-Tricks boasts a large commercial distillery that features 2500L and 250L hybrid pot and column stills, as well as 7500L fermentation capacity and 15 hec brewhouse for crafting grain-based spirits from scratch, showcasing our commitment to distillation quality and innovation.

Our forward-thinking artisan distillery is complemented by an indoor cocktail bar, Sunset Deck and private cask hall. Enjoy our innovative approach to the Gold Coast bar scene and the experience our head bartender offers. Enjoy our debut silver and spiced sugarcane spirits – our nod to the proud sugarcane industry of our region, and Australia.

Our Products

Six-Tricks takes its name from the six core spirit types our distillery is able to produce from scratch. We’re a rum and whiskey distillery at heart however, we aren’t currently able to offer these products. Why? Because the key to good rum and whiskey is time. We’re filling casks as we speak, where the spirits will rest for a minimum of two years. In the meantime, we offer our signature Six-Tricks Silver Cane – an unaged rum perfect for mojitos, daiquiris, piña coladas, or simply enjoyed with mixers (this product recently collected Bronze at the Australian Rum Awards!). We also have available our Six-Tricks Premium Vodka which is produced on site, Gin due for release mid 2024, and other seasonal releases.
