About McHenry Distillery

McHenry Distillery – A family heritage

McHenry Distillery rests on the side of Mount Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula.

Mount Arthur stands sentinel over Port Arthur and this great southern port, with its deep harbour, opens southward onto the Great Southern Ocean. Port Arthur is a welcome sight to weary mariners, who having entered, can look back and imagine the South Pole due south of them, separated by 5,000km of mountainous salty brine.

There is nothing quite like the cool purity of air found in this part of the world. It wraps around the globe on the latitude 43°, leaving South America without crossing another land mass, until it eventually finds its way to the southern tip of Tasmania some 17,000km later. In that time the wave whipped ocean has stripped out all but the distant memory of man’s influence.

McHenry Distillery is Australia’s southern-most whisky distillery and with its family heritage makes it the southernmost family run distillery in the world.Its location takes advantage of the cool-moist-maritime environment, giving the maturing spirit the right conditions to make the most of its time in the wooden barrels. The property also has its own abundant pure spring water which becomes the heart of the developing spirit.
