Latest Launceston Limited Editions


Amongst the highest scoring Australian whiskies in Jim Murray's 2021 Whisky Bible.

Given Tasmania is so perfectly suited to whisky production, it's no wonder Bill Lark's early experiments kick-started a chain reaction that's showed no signs of losing momentum. Twenty plus distilleries are now operating in Tasmania and producing whisky - more than any other time, with license requests increasing every year. In some cases, supply has not kept up with demand, and while prices go up, whiskies from names like Sullivan's Cove have become near impossible to obtain.

Described as "a distillery with only bosses" and based at Launceston Airport’s Hangar 17, the Launceston Distillery was set up in 2015 by three chemists and two architects. All five have day jobs, so the group aren’t desperate for a quick return, rather they’re just looking to make and market Tasmania’s best whisky. Recent reviews from the likes of Jim Murray suggest they’re well on the way.  Production is headed by Chris Condon, a whisky enthusiast with a fine attention to detail honed as a pharmaceutical industry quality analyst and the brewing team leader at Boags Brewery. No doubt he will be familiar to some as the first distiller at Nant, having laid the foundations for the company’s early success between 2008 and 2011. These three new releases all come highly recommended.
