Whisky maker toast of Australia

Hellyers Road Distillery has been named Australia’s Champion Distiller of the Year. The Tasmanian company won the prestigious top gong at the recent Australian Distilled Spirits Awards which was held in Melbourne. Located in lush dairy country in Tasmania’s northwest, Hellyers Road Distillery is Australia’s largest boutique whisky distillery and exports its premium product to more than 20 countries. The distillery was set up in 1999, near Burnie, by a group of dairy farmers and whisky aficionados who operated one of Tasmania’s largest milk processing companies, Betta Milk. Their first bottles of whisky were released to the public in 2006. Hellyers Road Distillery is renowned for its single malt whisky, and prides itself on producing a tipple that “captures the very taste and character of Tasmania".
