This elegant whisky was matured in small French oak casks previously used to age apera fortified wine (Australian style sherry) and then finished in Spanish PX casks for another 6 months. This full flavoured whisky was double distilled and is non-chill filtered to retain depth of character.
Launceston’s first whisky distillery, the Caledonian Distillery, was established in 1824 and became one of the Colony’s foremost distilleries. In 1839, the Distillation Prohibition Act was enacted – outlawing the distilling of spirits across the island. Since 1992 when the law was changed to allow for the first modern day distillery, Hobart has been home to a growing number of producers. Launceston Distillery is the first traditional whisky producer in Launceston to gain a production licence since the Caledonian closed nearly 180 years ago.
