Daci & Daci Bakers

Daci and Daci Bakers is a European-style bakery/patisserie located in the heart of Hobart's waterfront.

Husband and wife team Nasar and Cheryl Daci bedazzle local patrons and tourists with their cafe full of Viennese/Parisian styled pastries in Murray Street, Hobart, just up the hill from the docks. It's a world where you find authentic croque monsieur brimming with gruyere cheese and prosciutto. Or a range of pissaladiere (France's reposte to the pizza) topped with caramelised onions, anchovies, olives, slow-roasted tomatoes, basil or fetta. Antipodian gourmet pies haven't been forgotten, including varieties with chicken, leek and white wine or braised Tasmanian lamb with local shiraz and rosemary. There are diet-killing dessert pastries, although some are so dainty they scarcely register on your conscience. The list goes on ... and on. Nasar Daci, extraordinary chef and creative business operator, first came to Tasmania from Kosovo in May 1999 with 200 other ethnic Albanians. He came for a seven day visit and ended up staying seven months. Then seven months became four years and after four years he went to Melbourne. That's where he met his wife and seven years later they moved back to Tasmania and falling in love with the people and the food . The couple had ambitions to create a business that would provide customers with a European-style bakery/patisserie experience. Daci and Daci are very keen to make something special with the food and are both very passionate about things we are trying to create. The bakery sources as much as it can from within Tasmania because it wants to create a sustainable environment for all who work in Tasmania. So drop in, have a coffee and indulge!

Dalrymple Vineyards

You have to imagine it - bald, denuded windswept hills, singular ancient gums leaning at angles, pushed against the sky by roaring gales from the north-west coast.

Situated in the heart of the highly acclaimed Pipers River region of northeast Tasmania, almost equidistant from Launceston, and planted on sloping hills that overlook Bass Strait – the wild sea separating Tasmania from the mainland. Our wines are complex characters; weight, texture, and flavour come together before bottling and mature in our cellar - developing and growing.

Devil's Distillery

Devil's Distillery was founded in 2015 with a mission to produce the finest hand crafted spirits and liqueurs using Tasmanian barley, water and produce.

Devil's Distillery is a Hobart based distillery producing Hobart Whisky (to be released in 2018) and Tasmanian Moonshine Company Products.

Each product is distilled with passion and the commitment to making great Tasmanian spirits.

Using only the finest agricultural product and pure spring water, we use a 1800 litre Tasmanian made copper pot still built by Peter Bailly, of Knapp Lewer Contracting Pty Ltd.

Our whisky is rested in oak casks for a minimum of 2 years. These casks have been specially selected for us by our cooper, Adam Bone at his Tasmanian Cask Company. Adam diligently sources wooden cask material from around the world. We find that his many years of experience in the industry are extremely beneficial for our distillery.

We have sought to make our whisky smooth and full of flavour, so that they bear testimony to Tasmania’s fine produce. We hope that you enjoy the result of our innovations and labours.

Diemen Pepper

Diemen Pepper is a small, locally owned enterprise specialising in the products of the Tasmanian rainforest plant: Native Pepper. We harvest, dry and prepare pepperberries and leaf for sale interstate and for export.

Our pepper product is unique - although our peppers look a bit like conventional pepper, they give a sweet fruity flavour followed by a brief, sharp tingly sensation on the palate, and are very popular in several discerning markets - Germany and France for example. Our dried pepperleaf is used by many commercial manufacturing businesses to provide that unique native flavour of the Australian Bush.

We operate on a farm in the lovely D'entrecasteaux region, and our pepper supplies come from all over Tasmania mainly in the high rainfall regions of the north west and northeast.
We pride ourselves on our excellent quality product - the best in the business - and our prompt and friendly service.

We welcome commercial and retail enquiries and are able to provide a high level of technical and developmental support if required.

Global kudos for sparkling wines

Another ringing endorsement for Tasmania’s world-class sparkling wines. One of France’s most respected champagne authorities has proclaimed our bubbly offerings to be amongst the best anywhere. Fourth generation French champagne maker, Cyril Brun, Chef de Caves for Charles Heidsieck, has likened our sparkling wines to those of the great champagne houses. During a recent visit to Tasmania, he told The Mercury: “Every time I taste the sparkling wine from Tasmania I feel like it is the one that could be potentially the closest to champagne.” About one third of all wine made in Tasmania is sparkling. The local industry is also booming, with latest figures estimating it is now worth $100 million to the local economy each year. Another $15.2 million is also generated by wine-related tourism.

Bellamy’s back in black

Tasmanian based baby food and formula company, Bellamy’s, has put the tough times behind, and is reporting healthy profits. The Launceston based company reported a net after-tax profit of $42.8 million for 2017-18. Revenue also jumped by 37 per cent to $329 million. This represents a major turnaround from the $800,000 loss the company had recorded for the previous financial year, and a previous share price crash. Bellamy’s Chief Executive, Andrew Cohen told The Advocate: “…the Bellamy’s turnaround plan continues to demonstrate results in terms of revenue growth, profitability, cashflow and the balance sheet…Beyond the numbers, the business has transformed over the period in terms of process and disciplines, but, more importantly, in terms of culture and capability.” He adds, growth is focused on selling organic infant nutrition into China and wider Asia.

Sparkling wine festival adds fizz

Tasmania’s celebration of all things sparkling – Effervescence Tasmania – has unveiled this year’s program and there are plenty of reasons to pop the cork in celebration. The Launceston-based festival, which bubbles into life on November 11, has included Hobart in the mix for its fifth festival. Effervescence Tasmania is described as one of the world’s best sparkling wine festivals, and all featured producers are by invitation only, ensuring all wines presented to guests are the best Tasmania has on offer. More than 1,200 enthusiasts took part in master-classes and attended dinners at last year’s event. And, as with every year, the highlight will be the Grand Tasting in the gardens of Launceston’s Josef Chromy winery. Australia’s first sparkling wine was produced in Tasmania from the 1826 harvest. Today, the island state is widely recognised as the country’s home of premium sparkling wine, with that market now accounting for about one third of all local wine production.

Gold for Van Diemens Land Creamery

The Pepperberry and Leatherwood Honey Ice Cream, from the Van Diemens Land Creamery, has taken out top gong at the recent Hobart Fine Food Awards, being named best ice cream. The artisan ice creamery also won a swag of 11 medals. Some of the flavours that scored gold included: Peach and Lemon Myrtle, Blood Orange Sorbet, and Whiskey Cream Ice Cream. The company, which is based in Elizabeth Town in northern Tasmania, has been producing premium ice cream for more than 12 years. To keep their ice cream authentically Tasmanian, they use as much local produce as possible – from local berries to olive oil and Tasmanian peanut butter. As well as retail outlets and restaurants, their award-winning ice cream can also be purchased at their punt on Hobart’s Constitution Dock.
