Early Release Sullivans Cove French Oak Port Cask Cask Strength Australian Single Malt Whisky (500ml)

$499.00 Bottle
  • ABV 60%

Also known as 'The Tasmanian Distillery', Sullivan's Cove has had a short but eventful history. It was established in 1994 at Sullivans Cove, the site of the first British settlement of Hobart. The location became the brand name for the whisky. The first distillations began in 1995 and within a few years 163 casks of spirit were produced. Late in 1999 the distillery was purchased by two businessmen from Canberra who went on to distill a further 629 casks of high-quality spirit. In November 2003, after a two year halt in production, the barrelled whisky, still and equipment was bought by a third group and moved to Cambridge, on the outskirts of the city. The Tasmania Distillery name was re-registered and the 1860's design Alembic Charentais Copper Pot still put back in production, yielding up to 120 casks of whisky per year.

However, as experience and knowledge advanced, their results have significantly improved. The rest is history...
