Given all of this, visitors are usually surprised to hear that Mike is just the pretty face of the operation, as his lovely and all too humble wife Alla is the real master distiller behind the curtain – she's the one responsible for crafting all of the award-winning schnapps, liqueur, brandy, gin, vodka and eau de vie produced here. And win awards they have! With some 320 international accolades and counting, the distillery is officially the most awarded in Australia, and surely one of the most awarded of its size in the entire world. No visit to Tamborine Mountain is complete without a stop at the distillery (even if you're not a drinker), and while it looks like the kind of place that could only be found by foolishly following some breadcrumbs through the forest or chasing a white rabbit down a rabbit hole, it's actually surprisingly easy to find just a couple streets east of the town centre.
