36 Short Distillery

about the maker

Two brothers, driven by a shared passion and a commitment to fulfil their late father's dream, Jon and Con have successfully brought their father Pando's vision to life. They've given a contemporary twist to his dream of distilling Rakia, and their enterprise has since expanded to include an impressive array of award-winning spirits like Gin, Vodka, Whisky, and Limoncello. The premium spirits collection is meticulously crafted, featuring ingredients directly sourced from their family farm or the finest Australian produce, all without any added artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives.

Their dedication lies in the creation of the finest and unique spirits, with each sip promising to take enthusiasts on a journey of exceptional taste.

The intriguing choice of the name "36 Short" carries a deep familial significance and a touch of humour. It stems from a cherished family joke that holds a special place in their hearts. In the wake of their father Pando's passing, they sought to honour his memory in a lighthearted yet meaningful manner. What better way to pay tribute than by naming their brand after his suit size? Thus, they proudly present to the world 36 Short, a brand that encapsulates the spirit of celebration, quality libations, and the enduring legacy of their beloved Pando.
