Hellyers’ distilling process ensures an enhanced single malt flavour delivering a well-balanced and very smooth spirit. The nose shows fresh fruit on cereal, a touch of vanilla, coconut oil with a hint of spice evident in the background. The warming palate is almost creamy in texture, and delivers the generous malty flavours promised by the nose in a most distinguished fashion. A benchmark Australian single malt.
In 1825, Henry Hellyer was one of the first European explorers to set foot in the rugged interior of North West Tasmania as chief surveyor of the Van Dieman's Land Company, carving a dirt road into the rugged wilderness with the most basic of tools. Almost 200 years later, his road now guides the way to the Hellyers Road Distillery in the town of Burnie. The Distillery’s casks are imported American Oak barrels that were previously the domicile of American whisky, providing a tried and true means of maturation appreciated by whisky connoisseurs around the globe.
