Here's Looking At You, Kid
Gin Distillery Melbourne
Since its launch, Here’s Looking at You, Kid has explored different tastes and techniques which you can now experience in person with their recently opened distillery in North Melbourne.
Our founder Liz Beech has been involved with food and beverage businesses for most of her career. Liz was inspired by the flavours and possibilities of distilling after a trip to Scotland.
It may seem crazy to move your distillery from Mordialloc to North Melbourne in the middle of a pandemic. But that’s exactly what Liz and her family found themselves doing.
Liz says “We looked for a long time trying the find the right venue that worked for us. We needed a space for our bar and masterclasses but it also needed to house our copper pot still Eliza Jane”.
“When I first walked into Errol Street I knew we’d found our home; it’s just fantastic, it’s a natural fit for what we are trying to do. I love living in North Melbourne that locals have been very supportive, there’s a great community here.”
Liz’s new home is situated in the heart of North Melbourne on Errol Street. The two storey Victorian terrace with glass frontage lets in tonnes of natural light which lights up the room and Eliza Jane.
The bar interior is relaxed with Moroccan styling which is a modern take on the film ‘Casablanca’ - hence the name.
Behind the bar you’ll find all our gins and vodkas; classic G&Ts to Gin Spritzs and Espresso Martinis. There are tasting paddles for those that want to try the range and a local beer and wine list too.
The distillery is open for tastings and sales on Thursday 11am-5pm, Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 2pm-5pm and Sunday 2pm-5pm. Drop in and say hi and check out the range! For bottle sales outside these hours please contact us here.
Here’s Looking At You, Kid were delighted to recently win awards at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards for both our gin and our vodka, as well as the bottles they come in! Whilst we are humbled to win awards, we will still continue to innovate and strive to produce a better quality product year on year. Want to know more? Liz would love to chat to you about them!

SPIRIT MAKING MASTERCLASSES
Upstairs is the spirit making Masterclass room, the one Liz dreamed of back in 2015. This is the place where you can learn, create and bottle your own gin or bourbon inspired whisky.
“I find it inspiring to see what people come up with for their spirits, they can get quite creative. It gives me a chance to talk about what I love doing and people get to take away something that’s a reflection of their experience here with us”.
