Distillation of Spring – an evening of Fine Food, Wine & Spirits


Treat yourself to a delightful twilight event at St Mary’s Anglican Church, Maitland, by joining us at our launch of the Church St Spring Fair 2022. On arrival, you will be greeted with a selection of quality wines from the Hunter Valley’s Piggs Peake Winery along with a choice of non alcoholic drinks while thrilling your senses with majestic music played on the magnificent pipe organ.

Take a leisurely stroll across the grounds to the church hall, where you will be served an extensive range of decadent canapés hand crafted by Feast Catering, one of Newcastle’s first fine food caterers, matched with locally distilled Gins, Botanical Spirits, Bitters and non alcoholic refreshers created by Carrington’s Styx Distillery and Newcastle Bitters Co. Kelie Kenzler and her partners from Newcastle Bitters Co will present a fascinating insight into the intricacies of distillation.

Then be tempted by items such as a Cocktail Party, wine and other bespoke quality goods, along with the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets with 1st prize of an Australian custom made cast iron umbrella support frame for roses or wisteria valued at $1000.00.

All funds raised will go to our local National Trust property – Grossmann & Brough Houses – for much needed maintenance especially given the recent ongoing weather events. Hoping you can come along for this fun evening.
