Distillery 031 is home to 031 Bar & Restaurant, an intimate cocktail bar and dining area. The distillery’s urban setting and views over the railway line provide a unique blend of prohibition speak-easy and industrial chic. Vast glass windows look through to the distillery and barrel aging area so that patrons can take in the Distillery 031 experience whilst enjoying fine craft cocktails.
In keeping with the brand’s theme, UK trained chefs Jordan Semple and Nat Green serve gourmet street food prepared with locally sourced ingredients. The menu is regularly updated with seasonal dishes and experimental items.
Distillery 031’s signature, all natural, gin & tonic and vodka & lemonade are complemented by a range of mouth-watering cocktails developed by one of Durban’s leading mixologists, Jason Andrews. The cocktails showcase the distillery’s exciting spirit range and include unique food pairings.
For a full Distillery 031 experience book a distillery tour & tasting or an 031 Absinthe Experience where you can enjoy the traditional “louching” ritual from a hand-blown French glass absinthe fountain, and experience the Paris of Van Gogh and Manet.
