Poltergeist Gin is produced in small batches at the historic Shene Distillery in Pontville, Tasmania. Poltergeist is available in two expressions; Poltergeist A True Spirit and Poltergeist Unfiltered. Poltergeist Unfiltered retains the full flavour profile of all twelve botanicals, completely covering the front, middle and back of the pallet with a long lingering finish.  It may ‘ghost’ over ice due to the density of flavouring oils derived from the botanicals. The flavour profile is earthy and robust, and the balance of brawny botanicals like liquorice root, cardamom, orris root and Tasmanian pepper berries, with the more traditional citrus and nutty gin flavours, is unique. Drink it straight over ice, in a classic martini or a negroni.


Poltergeist Gin is proudly the recipient of two consecutive Platinum awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (2019, 2020). This has been achieved by being successfully awarded Double Gold medals for 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Poltergeist Gin is the world’s first gin to win two consecutive Platinum awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Poltergeist Gin – A True Spirit was awarded Silver medals in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition.

We invite you to come and visit us at Shene Distillery, open each weekend from 11 am to 4:00 pm and learn the artform of gin distillation. Perhaps sit under the chandeliers in the historic barn or sip hot gin punch by the fire. The choice is yours.
