Ice House Beverages

Born out of our love of fine wines, liquors and delicious food as well as an interest in producing our own wine, we began investigating various potential sources to begin production of a crisp Grape wine to use as the base to our range of fruit liquors.

Over the past few years we ran trials producing various types of Fruit and Grape wine, with our initial product being named D'Yavol 'Devil of A Drink' under the banner of Ice House Beverages. This fortified grape wine is a terrific mixer for Cocktails, fruit juices, even soft-drinks.

With the help of the crew at Wine Making Tasmania we now produce our own range of wines began of our wine and recently commenced our range of fortified fruit liquors.

Infuse Coffee Roasters

Award winning Infuse Coffee Roasters are based on the beautiful coastal seaside city of Burnie in Tasmania

We are a boutique roastery and pride ourselves in customer service and quality, fresh and consistent roasted coffee from all over the world.

Initially set up as an online business, we have expanded into the retail market and now service over 40 cafes and 42 retail outlets, and have won 26 fine food medals (as at March 2017).

Our roastery is located in a small workers cottage built in the 1900s in the heart of South Burnie’s industrial estate.

Our award winning coffee is now available 6 days a week from our espresso bar at the roastery. Come on in and grab a takeaway or settle in and check out everything coffee!

Island Curries

Cooking traditional Indian curries is an art, and it takes many years of experience to know how to mix spices together to produce an authentic tasting curry. Now all you need to do is use a paste from Island Curries to create a gourmet quality meal at home.

Island Curries is a relatively new preservative free range of curry pastes which are produced with a focus on quality not quantity. The pure quality alone results in not having any bulking or filling agents whatsoever, therefore, the curry pastes are fully packed with 100% pure flavour. This fact alone enables a 100g packet of Island Curry Paste to be a substantial addition to 1kg of any meat, fish or vegetables.

Many aromatic spices such as coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cardamom seeds and pepper corns are ground freshly on production day, thus keeping flavours as fresh as possible.

Island Curries offers 7 distinct flavours which may be mixed with any meats, fish or vegetable dishes, are completely free from all preservatives, additives and colourings and are adaptable for the whole family to use, as the chilli is added whilst cooking.

Our ‘Young Gun’ winemakers

Tasmania’s ‘young gun’ wine-makers are definitely punching above their weight. The state has three finalists in the top dozen vying to be crowned best young winemaker in the country. They will face off at the national Young Gun Wine Awards at MONA on June 18. One of Tasmania’s young guns is Ricky Evans who produces riesling and pinot noir at the Two Tonne Tasmania winery near Swansea. He was named People's Champion at the 2016 awards and told The Examiner the award definitely boosted the Two Tonne Tasmania brand: “It gives you a lot of exposure when you’re sitting next to winemakers of this calibre.” He is also proud of the young talent coming through our winemaking ranks, saying “Tasmania has three finalists. We’re batting above our average in terms of production and it’s a great indication of where quality lies.” The other two Tasmanian Young Gun finalists are; Jonathan Hughes from Mewstone in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel; and Gilli and Paul Lipscombe from Sailor Seeks Horse in the Huon Valley.

Scallop sensation

All roads lead to Bridport for scallop lovers in August. The north-east village is getting ready to host the first Tassie Scallop Fiesta, an event sure to draw crowds of eager seafood lovers. The fiesta will celebrate the arrival of the first scallops of the season, while also recognising Bridport’s key role in Tasmania’s scallop industry. The scallop boats may be too big to pull into Bridport these days, but one of the state’s biggest operators, Allan Barnett, still runs his processing plant in the seaside village. Festival organiser, Tony Scott, told The Examiner he was inspired by the success of Tasmania’s winter festivals: “We thought, how about we try and inject a bit of activity into the village when it’s not quite as active in the wintertime.” So, if you fancy scallops fresh off the boats, just head to Bridport on August 5.

Anzac biscuit beer

As Tasmanians turned out in force on Anzac Day to remember the sacrifices of servicemen and women at dawn services and lunch-time parades, one beer brewer chose to honour our diggers in a more innovative way. Launceston boutique beer-maker, Morrison Brewery, created a special beer to mark this most sacred of days. A beer flavoured like…Anzac biscuits. It is described by its creator, Paul Morrison, as a malt heavy creation with notes of coconut and golden syrup: just like its biscuit namesake. This special Anzac biscuit beer was unveiled at Launceston’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival, a three-day event that inspires boutique brewers to create a showcase beer using freshly harvested hops. Taking that to heart, Paul Morrison mixed Ella Hops, recently picked at Bushy Park, with coconut, oats and golden syrup to create his biscuity brew. Don’t ever expect it to take the place of that enduring Anzac tipple – the rum toddy –but it is certainly an interesting way to raise a glass to our diggers.
