Fremantle’s first urban distillery, the sleek Republic of Fremantle is located in the port city’s historical West End. Featuring a sophisticated cocktail bar and a restaurant, the distillery serves up their own local gin and vodka as well as a variety of other crisp beverages in their 100-seat bar and kitchen.
Sip on innovative cocktails out the front on the gorgeous Pakenham Street or sit inside and wonder at the distillery’s state-of-the-art custom-built Müller copper pot still.
What was the client’s issue that needed fixing?
Designing a beer system that was not the centerpiece of the venue, it had to complement the fact that the venue was a distillery, whilst blending in with the interior design. The client also uses a lot of sparkling water for cocktails, as well as providing chilled water for tables, they engaged the Barons team to provide a solution that did not involve an ongoing rental cost.
What was the nature of your solution?
A 6 tap draught beer system installed on the back bar. Along with a chilled water system, powered by a carbonator and icebank chiller located back in the cool room to avoid using up valuable under bench space.
Anything interesting/exciting/different about the job?
The cool room was very small and required some “tetris-like” design. We mounted the TE-MIX25 chiller system for the water in the dead space next to the cool room blower to maximise the floor space.
