Our off-grid whisky distillery was specially designed to take advantage of its rural location.

We’re here for the long-haul, so we need to look after our customers, community and natural environment and we don’t need to grow fast. We want our kids to take over, so the distillery needs to be a fun place to be.

Our Still.

Our 2500 litre copper pot-still was handmade for us by Tasmania’s premier still-maker Knapp Lewer. It was engineered to produce the heavy, flavourful spirit we’re looking for.

Our Water.

The foundation of exceptional whisky is water. Our single malt is made from a mountain stream rising on the distillery property. It’s natural, pure and totally unfiltered.

Our Barrels.

Bourbon, port and sherry barrels are all individually re-coopered to our requirements. Smaller casks are perfectly suited to ageing conditions in the Kinglake Ranges. We are also experimenting with local native timbers.

Our Malt.

We want to know the provenance of everything that goes into our whisky. 80% of our barley is farmed and malted in New South Wales and each grower is known to us personally.

It’s all about purity and intent and we intend to make the best whisky with heart.
