Eventual owners, the Corowa Shire Council following an inspection of operations of the Junee Licorice andChocolate Factory sold the land and buildings to the Directors of that Company for the sum of $1.00. It was Council’s keen desire that something be done to arrest the rapidly declining state of this iconic, magnificent, heritage building.
Since September 2009 the new Company known as Corowa Whisky and Chocolate has been busily restoring the brick portion of the flour mill and office built in the 1920’s. The first stage is now completed with the restoration of the mill office, an area which for several months was used as a sales point for quality chocolate products manufactured in Junee.
Now the sales area has been moved into the main brick building where visitors can gaze at the 28 meter high solid brick wall above the rustic sales location surrounded by 500mm walls of solid brick construction. The two original engine rooms and the ground floor of the main mill building have too been transformed into purposeful areas and soon a coffee shop will be added.
Within the flour mill we have an organic cafe selling Coffee's and homemade lunches and cakes. A shop selling the organic chocolates and a Giant Freckle making station for the children and the adults too!!!You are invited to come and experience the feel of the old flour mill, taste and purchase our famous chocolate and licorice products and just relax and enjoy the ambience of this important part of Corowa’s history.
