Patric share his incredible journey of buying a failed business and turning it around and their journey in export and local markets ultimately winning the “Worlds Best Single Malt Whisky” Award.
Sullivans Cove French Oak Cask Whisky has been judged the world’s best single malt at the World Whisky Awards in London. The win in the whisky world’s premier event caps a string of international achievements for Tasmania’s 20-year-old distilling industry which is about to get its own map in Jim Murray’s influential World Whisky Bible.
Patrick Maguire, Head Distiller and Manager of Tasmania Distillery to speak at Australia Trade Tasting Conference. Patrick is also the founding member and Chairperson of the Tasmanian Whisky Producers Association and a founding member of the Australian Distillers Association.
Sullivans Cove Whisky was founded in 1995 at – you guessed it – Sullivans Cove. This scenic little slice of Hobart was also home to one Britain’s first settlements in Tasmania. Since it’s establishment Sullivans Cove whisky has become one of the most desired single malt whiskies in the world. The distillery’s already brim-full trophy cabinet was joined in 2014 by the biggest one yet, when Sullivans Cove French oak was named the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the prestigious World Whisky Awards in London.
Sullivans Cove recently moved to a brand new distillery at 1/10 Lamb Place in Cambridge. Visitors can tour the distillery, buy great whisky and relax with a dram of the World’s Best Single Malt in the visitor centre. No appointments necessary, open between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Sullivans Cove single malt whiskies are made using only Tasmanian ingredients, are non-chill-filtered and “distilled with conviction” – a cheeky little toast to Tasmania’s past as a melting pot for the criminally inclined. Most interestingly for whisky-lovers, Sullivans Cove bottle each barrel of whisky individually, giving every bottle unique and subtle variances in flavour, aroma and colour.
