About Hobart Whisky

Hobart Whisky are 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.

Hobart Whisky started developing their distillery in 2014 and started producing in 2015. Despite being one of the first dozen Tasmanian distilleries, they flew under the radar for quite a while, and in this time concentrated on making whisky.

Not all expressions are the same, and it’s important to Hobart Whisky that everyone can drink them as they do. Hobart Whisky hand bottle and label each release in their distillery with each bottle having its own identifying bottle number.

Hobart Whisky bears testimony to their Tasmanian malted barley, fermented with style, gently distilled with grace, then sweetly rested in hand selected oak casks.

Each small batch holds its own distinctive characteristics and signature.
