Aqua Vitae. Raspberry Gin is our latest gin; a sweet yet refreshing mixture created with Tasmanian-grown raspberries. These ingredients combine to create a harmonious taste that is rich on the palate, bringing a sweet and sensuous experience with each sip. With its rich red colour, and sweet raspberry finish, this gin can be enjoyed by itself on ice, or with a splash of sparkling water.
The Distillery, located in Brighton just 30 minutes from the Hobart CBD, was created entirely by hand by Tyler Clark. It was built with an ethos of environmental consciousness and waste minimisation, and this is why “upcycled” shipping containers were used to help create what is today the 7K Distillery.
You can usually find Tyler hiding away in the garage, tinkering, building or planning something. This is the way he’s always been. His early days on his family's semi-rural property outside of Hobart developed and crafted a strong passion for working with his hands—there wasn't a lot to do out in the sticks as a young boy! Continuing to develop his interest in building and creating, Tyler went on to begin a dual trade apprenticeship in electrical and instrumentation, working in various locations across Australia. Working in locations all across the country gave Tyler the means to start collecting Australian whisky, another passion that he has nurtured from a young age. This eventually led on to broadening his collection and acquiring spirits from all over the world. From here, the dream of beginning his own distillery started to grow.
