Whisky made the right way

We are passionate about creating whiskies that honour the best traditions of single malt whisky, but also capture the essence of northern Tasmania.

Our Whisky Range uses different oak casks during maturation which bring the flavours of the oak and of the previous cask contents.

Our range of bottled whisky is presented below. We also offer Private 20 L Casks which we will mature and bottle for you. Full details are available here.

Muscat Cask Finish Special Release

This single malt was aged for 2 years in small Apera casks, then finished in a Holm Oak muscat cask for another 14 months before going into bottle.

A small allocation of 50 bottles was released for Tasmanian Whisky Week 2021 to gauge public opinion. Having sold out in an hour we were convinced we had to release the rest of the cask.

An amazing single malt that is our first whisky released at 55%. This ABV was chosen as it still allowed the apera notes to come through while letting the rose water, Turkish delight and apricots to come through form the muscat.

A true triumph in cask finishing that we could not be more proud of.

367 bottles.
