About Furneaux Distillery
After visiting Islay in the southern Hebrides off Scotland, famous for its peaty maritime drams, Furneaux Distillery realised that Flinders Island also had, in abundance, the elements to create an island-produced whisky that would speak of its maritime environment.
Furneaux Distillery use 100% Tasmanian malt barley, pure rainwater and a unique local peat which is at once earthy and briny. It is a sustainable and renewable resource which spends a good portion of the year submerged in the salt lakes and lagoons of the wild east coast of Flinders Island. Furneaux Distillery then complete the production of their spirits from start to finish at The Flinders Wharf, from the peat smoking of the barley in a mobile malt kiln to the bottling and distribution.
