History

Western Australia's only licensed distillery.

[Source: Company's web site, cit. 2003]

Owner, developer and farmer Spike Dessert fell in love with the Kimberley when he saw it in 1972. With the onset of Sugar Cane being grown in the Ord River Valley in 1995 he saw a way to diversify his dream and created the Hoochery - currently Western Australia's only legal distillery.

Now if you are wondering about the name Hoochery - well the name was trademarked by Spike from the word Hooch which goes back to the Hutanuwu (later modified to Hoochinoo) Indian tribe of Alaska who made alcoholic liquor - this is until it became the more popular name for the illegal activity of bootlegging! (source: the Macquarie Dictionary)

Built on his farm just outside of Kununurra in the heart of the beautiful Ord River Valley is a small pot distillery, which has the capacity to produce over 50,000 bottles of Ord River Rum a year. Our Ord River Rum is thought to be the very first Rum ever produced in Western Australia and is gaining an excellent reputation for being a genuine traditional premium rum.
