Northern Distillers Dinner

Fri 04 August

“It’s the tightknit nature of the local distilling community that really makes Tasmanian whisky so special”

— Robbie Gilligan,
Tasmanian Whisky Producers Association President

To showcase new up and coming whisky producing talent in the states North the Tasmanian Whisky Producers Association (TWPA) is hosting a regional dinner where younger, lesser known distilleries, many of which are yet to release whisky, will have the chance to tell the stories of how they got to where they are and where they see themselves and the broader industry going. The evening will be hosted by Patrick Maguire, Distillery Manager of the renowned Sullivans Cove Distillery and feature the teams from Southern Wild Distillery and Iron House Distillery — in addition to guest speeches and tastings from:

Chris Condon, Launceston Distillery
Adam Pinkard & Adam Saunders, Adams Distillery
Mathew Cooper, Fannys Bay Distillery
John Weilstra, Corra Linn Distillery

After arriving at historic Quamby Estate guests will be treated to a three-course dinner, expertly matched with Tasmanian wines by the half glass. Between courses, expect distillery progress reports, first release sneak peaks, tasting of new make and maturing spirits, good times and stories aplenty — this is a behind the scenes industry event no kind of whisky enthusiast will want to miss.
