The Woombye-based distillery’s carefully crafted spirits reflect elements of the stunning Sunshine Coast.
Situated within Queensland’s lush subtropical coast, tucked away in the hinterland rainforest, Sunshine & Sons seem to have bottled the warm allure of the Sunshine Coast with their original vodka.
The pure, gluten-free vodka is gravity filtered through ancient local volcanic rocks, adding unparalleled depth and texture to the spirit due to their naturally high levels of magnesium oxide.
Soft and subtle with touches of pepper, chilli and minerals, Sunshine & Sons’ vodka is complemented by the purity of the Woombye water. Bright on the nose and spongy on the palate, the impact of the volcanic rocks is spectacularly complex.
Patiently distilled in copper pot stills, the process allows for the development and enhancement of the bonds within the spirit to create a beautifully balanced finish.
Produced by CAVU Distilling, Sunshine & Sons is the passion-project of four best mates who each left successful careers in all aspects of the drinks industry to channel their knowledge and love of spirits into crafting their own unique offerings.
In addition to their vodka, Sunshine & Sons also make a traditional dry gin with native Australian botanicals. Refreshing and juicy, it’s perfect for combating the Australian summer heat as well as being enjoyable year-round.
