Taking advantage of being away in a wonderful seaside location, I made sure I was up early enough to enjoy glorious sunrises and beach walks earlier before beginning the days at the Australian Distillers Conference at Mantra on Salt Beach.  This year the Conference was held just across the border of Queensland in northern New South Wales.  The beautiful surroundings at Kingscliff provided a wonderful backdrop to enjoy time to learn and chill out.

I would like to extend my thanks to the conference organisers and all the sponsors for not only providing relevant and engaging speakers but also for the opportunity to visit distilleries, reconnect with fellow distillers and make new connections with industry professionals from around Australia.

This was just brilliant!
