Drink Tasmania’s Signature Tour has been designed to offer our guests the best of both worlds when it comes to sampling Tasmanian beverages. The morning half of the tour takes place in the beautiful Huon Valley, home to Tasmania’s bountiful apple and cherry orchards. This is a chance to sample award-winning wines including sparkling, chardonnay, pinot noir, dessert wines and more while taking a leisurely stroll through the vineyards. You’ll also get to experience traditional farmhouse style organic apple ciders and compare them to more modern examples made from a variety of fruits from the valley including apple, pear, cherry, peach, blueberry, quince and which ever fruits are in season. Local produce from the valley will be on offer for lunch at the Apple Shed, which never fails to impress! You may opt to just do the morning half of the tour and depart the drop-off location in Hobart or guests are most welcome to join or book for the Beer and Whisky afternoon with more behind the scenes tours of process, tastings and relaxation at the breweries and distilleries we visit, either way there’s something for everyone on this tour.

It truly makes me proud to see the way our Whisky industry has grown since 1992 with so many distilleries all producing wonderful spirit and in such an environment of friendship and collegiality. This has certainly resulted in a huge increase in visitors and Whisky enthusiasts seeking to discover for themselves what all the excitement is about. We are so fortunate to be able to recommend Drink Tasmania to look after visitors to Tasmania on a journey of discovery. Brett has a passion and an in-depth understanding of our spirits and the distilleries like no other. The feedback from his guests is rewarding to hear and accordingly we welcome his guests with open arms. His tours are as much a part of the industry as the distilleries themselves.
