About Sullivans Cove Distillery
Sullivans Cove Distillery
Sullivans Cove Distillery was established in 1994 at its original location at the old brickworks at Sullivans Cove, making it the second oldest whisky distillery in Tasmania. In the early days, the reputation of Sullivans Cove was poor to say the least, but in 1999 new ownership vastly improved the quality of the whisky being produced.
In 2004, the distillery moved to its current location in Cambridge and their current head distiller Patrick Maguire took over distillation and cask selection. By 2007, Sullivans Cove started to gain international recognition with their American Oak winning Best Other Malt (whiskies outside of Scotland) at the World Whiskies Awards and Liquid Gold (95/100) in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
In 2014 when their French Oak cask HH0525 was named Best Single Malt Whisky in the World by the World Whiskies Awards, both their little distillery, and the Tasmanian whisky industry as a whole, shot to international acclaim. Sullivans Cove Distillery has been trying to keep up ever since. With a new generation of keen young distillers now bringing their passion for Tassie whisky to the table, Sullivans Cove continues as Australia’s premier single malt whisky distillery.
