Tasmania’s renewed whisky industry is now over 25 years old with around 40 distilleries operating and producing spirits on the island. With demand for Tasmanian whisky far-outstripping available supply, 18 distilleries have so-far released aged whisky to the market and more are expected to be released with each passing year. With natural advantages of pure clean mountain water, cool climate conditions and fields of barley and peat, this boutique industry is now being heralded for creating some of the finest single malt whiskies being produced anywhere in the world today.

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.
