Note from Robin :
I learned a great deal about whisky, whiskey, bourbon and rye. About wash runs and low wine solutions, about copper sulphate, the dangers of methyl alcohol and the vital importance of barrels and aging. Given its relative recent history, the incredibly high quality of Tasmanian air and water create incredibly high quality spirits. You're welcome to stick around and taste more of the distillery products, but please consider an Uber for transport. You can learn more about Tasmanian whisky and other distilleries on the excellent Tasmanian Whisky Trail.
