Whipper Snapper Distillery Journey

The Bomber

Whipper Snapper Distillery journey started where most great Australian stories do, with camaraderie. An Australian and US pilot shared two great loves in WWII – their love of bombers and whiskey. The war ended and they were separated by oceans and time but their recipe lived on.

The Shed

Fifty years after the recipe reached Australian shores, veteran Vic continued to distil his whiskey and moonshine in his back shed in Scarborough.
By a stroke of luck, Vic’s neighbour was a young man by the name of Al, who helped him write his memoirs, but more importantly, shared his love of whiskey.The shed became their escape and Vic passed on his recipe to his new comrade, Al, and his mate Jimmy.

The Search

Al and Jimmy made their way to Colorado, tracking down a relative of Vic’s fellow WWII pilot. He found Coop – who shared his love of whiskey and had refined the same recipe from WWII over time. Coop’s life was whiskey and he had recently sold his acclaimed distillery to settle down and retire – until he heard about a story shared in a small shed across the world in Scarborough.

Discovering Frank

Al and Jimmy took their love of whiskey across the world to Scotland, where Frank, a man who had been distilling for more than 50 years, helped them refine their recipe. Revered for his legendary status at Springbank, Bushmills and Bruichlanddich Distilleries, Frank was the rock star the recipe needed.

The Concept

So, with the determination of two young Aussie men, and a recipe refined from one side of the world to the other, Whipper Snapper was born.

How did Whipper Snapper Distillery get their name? “What makes their young little guys think you can take on the big names of whiskey?” Whipper Snapper Distillery answer – “We may be young Whipper Snappers, but this is our obsession and we were meant to share this recipe.”

The Distillery

Whipper Snapper Distillery whiskey brings together hundreds of years of distilling experience, to bring a taste that has stood the test of time, with great Australian ingredients. Every bottle they distil is a tribute to Vic, his bomber and all the servicemen who loved the recipe – and now to all of those who will love their whiskey for years to come.
