This sole surviving cottage dates back to the notorious little lon days. The cottage had been constructed with handmade red bricks and a slate roof. It has a colourful history being run as a sly grog shop and a brothel. Today it functions as a gin distillery. The CBD's only distillery; Little Lon Distilling Co.
Home to a running gin distillery, visitors can taste our handcrafted bespoke gins or enjoy a range of cocktails.
