Our Story

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.

History of Distilling in Launceston

Prior to the establishment of Launceston Distillery in 2014, Launceston’s whisky history consisted of only one distillery, Caledonian Distillery which operated between 1824 and 1838.
