Hobart Whisky is a family-owned distillery based in Hobart, Tasmania, and their philosophy is entirely based around making whisky for them, that they love, and want to share.

Established in 2014 early distillations were done with a wash from local brewery Moo Brew. In 2017 they were able to set up our brewing and fermentation system which has been utilised since. Production is done solely on a locally manufactured 1800L Knapp Lewer copper pot still. Each run is considered individually with cut decisions based purely on scent and taste. It’s all about the perfect control of the product and telling a story.

Hobart Whisky predominantly mature their spirit in American oak ex-bourbon casks. This decision was made for a number of reasons, primarily, the ex-bourbon gives a great opportunity to impart their favourite flavours and characteristics in to the whisky. They have found a lot of success in matured in ex-bourbon and then finishing in other casks including fortified and wine casks, among other things. This allows to ensure the whisky matures and is balanced without picking up too many tannins, being too cask driven yet youthful.

This limited release is a marriage of small carefully selected American oak ex-bourbon casks. The spirit from these barrels is then given a finishing period in barrels that matured sherry and also barrels that held Laphroaig peated whisky. The result is a whisky a whisky that has the ability to show tropical fruits and toffee but also show dark fruits and a slight nuttiness with the added satisfaction of a hint of Laphroaig peat.
