About the Distillery
It’s very hard not to post a picture of the Australian Whisky of The Year 2015 and the World Whisky of the Year 2014 when talking about Sullivans Cove Distillery but here it is again.
Sullivans Cove whisky was established in 1994 at Sullivans Cove in Hobart, the birthplace of Tasmanian whisky. Sullivans Cove is the spot where the British first established the settlement that would grow into the City of Hobart. Being a penal colony, the locals were quite fond of a drink with 16 legal distilleries and countless illegal stills operating by 1824. However, in 1838 Governor John Franklin imposed a total prohibition on distilling that lasted 150 years and was only overturned in the early 1990s!
Since then the Tasmanian whisky industry has developed into a small but significant force on the global scene.
Sullivans Cove is one of Tasmania’s most successful and widely distributed whiskies, available in 11 countries and the winner of some of the most prestigious international whisky awards.
