Australia’s largest boutique whisky distillery is located in Burnie, an easy 30-minute drive from Devonport’s Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal.
The Visitor Centre is open daily from 1000 to 1630, (except public holidays), offering superb cafe fare and breathtaking views across the Emu Valley precinct. Visitors can enjoy a fully interpreted tour of the distillery (Whisky Walk) to find out the fascinating origins behind the brand and learn how Hellyers Road crafts its award-winning single malt whiskies. The Whisky Walk also provide guests with the opportunity to pour and wax seal their very own bottle of Hellyers Road Distiller’s Choice whisky – complete with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. Bookings for the Whisky Walk are highly recommended.
Following the tour, you can sample their range of single malts, vodka and whisky cream liqueurs at the dedicated tasting counter – or enjoy a superb meal or coffee in the cafe.
Even if you are not a whisky lover, a visit to Hellyers Road Distillery is a fascinating experience and insight into how one of the world’s emerging whisky brands plies its craft.
