Here's Looking at You Kid is a family run small batch distillery, creating spirits inspired by the charm and romance of Casablanca.

Our Master Distiller, Liz Beech, has a passion for all things food and beverage. Liz began her journey as a chef and pioneer of the Melbourne food truck revolution before heading to North America to develop her passion for booze. Whilst there, she partook in internships with Jim Beam, Maker's Mark and Corsair. Liz then graduated from the Moonshine University in Kentucky specialising in Distilling, Vodka, Gin, Whiskey, Bourbon, Rum & Botanicals, before returning to Australia.

Here's Looking at You Kid uses native botanicals with our Copper Pot Still, Eliza, to produce a range of Gin and Vodka, including Australia's best vodka as voted by Broadsheet.

Currently located in Melbourne's Bayside, our distillery will soon move to North Melbourne offering tastings of the Here's Looking at You Kid range as well as masterclasses with our Master Distiller to make your very own bottle of Gin!

Very informative class, excited to try our own gin!

We did think we’d get to taste a few more gins throughout the class.

Tracy McConnell-Henry Dec 2023

Was great fun, interesting and Liz is definitely a wealth of knowledge, well worth it!

Miranda Sowden Dec 2023

Thoroughly enjoyed this masterclass. It was an excellent mix of learning about the bigger process of distilling (including seeing the big still that had been brought out from the USA) and being involved in selecting our own botanicals to be used in our own little distilling process. It was great to produce our own blend and be able to take that home. The teacher Liz and trusty partner/assistant Nev were friendly, knowledgeable and very happy to answer our many and varied questions. Definitely happy to recommend this class to others.

Tamara Castagna Dec 2023

We had a great afternoon, Liz was very knowledgeable and we come away with some nice gin. Would highly recommend.

Fiona Weegink Nov 2023

This class was informative and fun. Liz was outstanding with her knowledge on all things gin (and more) lol. A refreshing gin and tonic on arrival and then upstairs for the fun part of botanical knowledge. Liz provided a yummy nibble tray of cheese, fruit and crackers whilst we waited for our distillery to complete its process. Can’t wait to taste my gin with chosen botanicals in the next couple of weeks.

Liz has been such a gracious host keeping a total of 8 of us under control on her own - especially with me asking so much questions around the process and her setup!

I love her setup of the mini stills and how she showed us the different layers coming through the bottle and it was fascinating to see how each still was different with their own quirks.

Liz has been entertaining and the complimentary share platters really went well with the evening! Well worth the price, loved the ambience of the venue/workshop area and loved how Liz informed us about everything along the way!

Louis-Stephane Dejardin Apr 2023

Nice teacher, sharing her passion, great setup and good training content. Very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend

Fabulous. Liz and Nev keep things rolling along and we learned so much. (less tonic water for us) The venue was cosy and the nibbles plate was almost as delicious as the ‘Christmas Gin’. Thanks so much. Cheryl and Pete

Our Gin master class teacher was very knowledgeable & I really enjoyed learning about the distilling process.

There was also a lovely cheese & fruit platter to enjoy while we sampled all the different Gin varieties under her label.
This was all delivered in a relaxed & informal home like environment. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our experience, Liz was very knowledgeable, gave lots of great information, and there was a fantastic range of gins for tasting (our favourite was the Christmas gin). Our only down side was that we weren't as involved in the making process as we thought we could be, but also understand this is likely due to licencing around production/sale of alcohol. But still a very nice way to spend an evening.

Sian Slade Feb 2023

A great experience! Really enjoyed the class, very well set up and learnt a lot. Many thanks to our teacher Liz for a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon!

The course was not I was expecting. Nonetheless I had fun and enjoyed my time.
I learned things I didn’t think I’d learn and I didn’t learn things I thought I would.
Liz and Eloise were great.
Good value for money.

Lauren Simpson Jan 2023

Had an extremely lovely afternoon. Liz was very informative and kindly shared her story. We tasted some amazing gins and not to forget two absolutely lovely vodkas. Can’t wait to open and share the gin we made with my selected botanicals.

Great evening that was very informative but in a relaxed setting. The group size was just right enabling all to equally participate.

Rhiannon Holmes Oct 2022

Liz from Here's Looking At You Kid was an awesome host and teacher! We loved doing her Gin Making Masterclass. The location is super cute and in a beautiful building, Liz is informative and her passion for distilling comes through in the way she can speak about the whole process, we found it really informative. Getting to make our own bottle of gin was a beautiful touch and something we'll treasure forever! The experience itself is so fun from a drink on arrival, a cheese plate to share, making and learning about gin to then taste testing Liz's own creations, we all left saying how much fun we had. Would absolutely recommend!

The class started on time, the teacher was always willing to help and answer any questions. Great experience.

I attended the class with the goal of understanding how distilling works and the peculiarities of gin in particular. The room is well prepared for a class and allows a good visualization of the distilling process.
Liz did a great job of answering specific questions and we had a good time sampling the gins.

This was amazing. A great way to spend a Sunday. Liz was a great host and knows her stuff. The venue was well setup and a joy to be in. The individual gin making kit worked perfectly and gave enough time to make observations and ask lots of questions. The cheese board was to die for. All up I would do it again in a heartbeat. Well worth it. Gin is not my thing and it was still a great day.

Food and Drink Tasting class review by Ian Aitken - Melbourne

Milad Ruzicka Aug 2022

What a great experience, certainly worth the time and money.
Absolute credit to Liz and her wealth of knowledge and experience
All of the distilling processes where explained in great detail as where the botanical,s etc
Heaps of fun, can’t wait to start experimenting with my own still.
Highly recommend the master class as it is a very spiritual experience watching the mini still perform its magic , especially after Liz has taken you through a guided tasting of her range of spirits.

Christine Buckley Jul 2022

Liz was fantastic and very knowledgeable, if a little vague at times.
The class was fun and we learnt a lot.
Probably a tad overpriced.
I would happily recommend to others.

Lisa Smyth Jun 2022

A lovely intimate afternoon learning about the art of gin distilling - it's really fun to figure out which botanicals you want to go into your own gin and learn all about the process. We had a great time and will definitely recommend to others.

It was really interesting learning the distilling process behind gin, and all the different botanicals used, especially the native ones. The teacher was really friendly, and very knowledgeable, I found her really helpful in answering all my questions. It was great to enjoy a tasting experience, and get the tasting notes.

I had a great class crafting my own gin. I wasn't sure how it was going to work, but it was even more legit than I expected - greeted with a G&T, getting to choose our own botanicals, and then having our own mini stills that distill our unique gin throughout. The space is really lovely, and the snacks and hospitality were great too.
