Own your very own limited edition cask of whisky
In 2015 we gave whisky lovers the opportunity to purchase their very own small 20 L cask of whisky from Launceston Distillery. The owners of these casks are now waiting patiently for their casks to mature and the whisky bottled. Last year we had such a fantastic response to our offer and positive comments from our cask owners that we are currently filling a limited number of small 20 L port or sherry casks.
Chris Condon, the driving force behind Launceston Distillery, is a Launceston born whisky enthusiast. Recognising a gap in the Tasmanian Whisky Trail, Chris returned to Launceston in 2011 after 3.5 years as the Head Distiller at a prominent distillery located at Bothwell in southern Tasmania, to establish the first Whisky Distillery in Launceston in 175 years. His aim was simple; gather together a group of visionary like-minded people, passionate about whisky and all that Tasmania has to offer. The result, Launceston Distillery.EXPLORE
