Hellyers Road Distillery.....take the road less travelled
We extend a very warm welcome to Hellyers Road Distillery.
Being Australia’s largest single malt whisky distillery comes with its own pressures. For a start, we are really not that big. We think big and act big, but when compared to Europe’s finest, we’re actually quite small. And that’s good, because it keeps us trying hard. We try hard to produce Australia’s very best single malt whiskies.
We are now represented in 21 countries throughout Europe and in 2013 we were selected as Best New World Whisky in blind tastings held at Whisky Live Paris. That was for our Pinot Noir Finish varietal (its silky smooth - like all our single malts).
Our year has been characterised by several significant achievements.
We released our second aged statement whisky - 12 Years, and remain the only Tasmanian distillery to offer aged profile whiskies as part of our core range. Like our 10 Year, the 12 Year has been warmly received in the short time since its release.
The other major milestone for Hellyers Road has been the release of our first single cask, cask strength (59.4% alc/vol) single malt. The Gorge is the first offering in our Henrys Legacy Series which will comprise a one-off cask release each year. Already, this whisky has attracted the attention of purists, being judged the Nation’s second best single malt at the Malt Whisky Society of Australia Awards.
You’ll find these two whiskies and others on our Product Page.
Thanks for visiting our site and thanks for your support of a great Tasmanian single malt!
