WHAT DO WE DO?

A DRINK OF PASSION
A LABOUR OF LOVE

From a love of gin to a life of it

Our passion for creating a gin that you keep returning to is central to every bottle of Happenstance. Creating our signature gin has been a fantastic adventure and the foundation of an amazing friendship. Together we burst into spontaneous happy dances when new flavour profiles exploded in our mouths, and also felt the disappointment of experiments that fell flat. But persistence paid off and we continued crafting batch after batch until we landed our recipe for the perfect signature gin that we love sharing with you.

The process of making gin is all about selecting the right combination of botanicals to pass through our alembic copper still. But for us the true key to the process is a supportive network of family and friends who have encouraged, nurtured and helped us as we turned Happenstance Distillery from an idea to a reality. Happenstance is more than a name, it’s the serendipity of the support and the connections we’ve made along the way who have made it all possible.

For us the process is personal. From selecting the ingredients to filling and labelling each bottle, we are involved every step of the way and we’re so excited to share the results of our passion for gin with you.

MEET TIM AND MEI LIN

THE CONNOISSEURS THAT MADE ALL THIS HAPPEN

We are Mei Lin and Tim, acquaintances who have formed a strong friendship over a common love of gin. We have been on an incredible adventure to bring you Happenstance Gin… we’ve tasted every craft gin we could get our hands on, passed countless batches through the test stills and finally tamed the alembic copper still to bring our signature gin to you.

Hands-on at every stage, we put our hearts into bringing Happenstance Distillery to you, from our signature gin to all of the single batch and seasonal specials we will share.

Please get in touch if you’d like to know more!

THE HAPPENSTANCE DISTILLERY

A Little Distillery with
a Big Heart

Distillery in Thebarton, South Australia

From little things, slightly bigger things grow. After operating for four years in what used to be a mechanic’s workshop, Happenstance Distillery moved into a warehouse in Thebarton and opened its doors to the public. On most weekends you’ll find Mei Lin or Tim there ready to take you through their wares on a tasting board or to make sure your friends have a drink in hand. And they also cater to the (gasp) non-gin drinker! For more details or to book a table, click here.

The space is perfect for private events of 20 – 50 people day or night. The vibe is warm industrial, you can request the bar be stocked with your favourite drinks and there’s no venue hire fee. Happenstance can provide contacts for catering, or hosts are welcome to DIY a cheese/ charcuterie table or order…pizza? Contact us for more details.
