$10k-a-time whisky sells in hours
Sullivans Cove has sold Tasmania’s most expensive whisky – two decanters priced at $10,000 each – within hours of them being offered. The whisky was made by blending some of its finest single malts, including the French Oak HH0525 that won the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky award, the French Oak HH0390 which was judged the Best Australian Single Malt in 2015 and the French Oak HH0509 which was awarded 96.5/100 by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible in 2013. Spokesperson Bert Cason said: “We've created a malt that stands head and shoulders above the rest and promises the connoisseur the treat of a lifetime, not to mention a slice of whisky history.” The two Sullivans Cove Manifesto decanters were hand made by Tasmanian glass sculptors Anne Clifton and Peter Bowles and are packaged in hand-made Huon pine cases lined with doeskin. One decanter was purchased online from the distillery’s Cambridge cellar door and the other was snapped up at Dan Murphy’s store in Double Bay, NSW.
