Our Story

Two brothers, with one passion, to realise our late father's dream of distilling traditional Rakia with a modern twist. In 2014, we handcrafted an Australian first Rakia made on the plains of Virginia, South Australia using the secret recipe handed down from father to son over three generations. Since then, we have expanded to include Award-Winning Gin, Vodka, Whisky & Limoncello.

Our premium spirit range is made using only the finest Australian ingredients. No added artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. 

The name 36 Short was chosen in honour of our father's (Pando) suit size.  Pando's passion for family, friends and good times is the benchmark for
36 Short.
