We'll discuss a brief history of gin and genever, as well as the botanicals used in our distillation and the flavour combinations of our gins which are all inspired by the characters who once lived in and around our little red brick Heritage Listed cottage-turned distillery - including the very room where our copper still resides.

Little Lonsdale, this once 'notorious' north-east corner of Melbourne, was a sight to behold in the 1850s. Its colourful past -specifically, a deep shade of harlot red- made it a magnet for the debauched, where wanton wenches and liquored-up larrikins lurched down its lamp-lit lanes.

Fast forward 141 years, and here we are. Little Lon Distilling Co. A gintrified establishment commemorating the rich history of Little Lon with a range of characterful, small-batch Melbourne gins that raise a tipple to the delightful deviates that once trod these lurid laneways.

It’s our double-distilled tribute to a hood once heaving with bordellos, bohemians, dance halls, opium dens, and gangsters and whose history is receding into the mists of time. It’s our way of keeping Little Lon’s spirit alive. Experience a true Melbourne gin masterclass and gin tasting experience in our historic CBD cottage.

Come for the gin. Stay for the stories. It's the spirit of Melbourne - now in a bottle.

Beautiful venue… very knowledgeable person conducting the tasting you’ve done really well. We were so sorry for a. Running late due to flights & then b. Having to rush off. Such a great little place to hang out if we had longer. Thank you.

Little Lon is a charming cottage distillery, the only one in the CBD. The class goes through a variety of curious characters from its rich and colourful past that each gin is named after. So fun and enjoyable. Snacking board provided with lots of gin and tonics. You’re sure to have a good time.

Great history, Lyndon was so personable. Great tasting gins - highly recommend even if you don’t love gin (who doesn’t love gin?)

Philip Young Feb 2022

Thoroughly enjoyed the “class” and the tastings. We now have a good understanding of the Gin industry and a little more knowledge of the process involved. The best part however was the distillery itself in the little heritage listed cottage in the middle of the city surrounded by skyscrapers. We had no idea it was there.
