Hellyers Road Distillery, in Burnie, north west Tasmania, is Australia’s largest single malt whisky distillery. Burnie is Tasmania’s fourth-largest city, a two-hour drive west of Launceston (148 kilometres/91 miles).
Hellyers Road Distillery produces fine, single malt whisky distilled from Tasmanian grown malted barley, pure Tasmanian rainwater and yeast and matured in American white oak barrels. Hellyers Road Single Malt Whisky uses the purest available ingredients and is neither chill-filtered nor artificially coloured, ensuring smooth, balanced flavours. The Distillery uses the same quality processes to produce Southern Lights-a premium grain vodka. This vodka is also an all-Tasmanian product-made from Tasmanian barley and pure rainwater and produced using triple pot-still distillation and charcoal filtration.
You can take a personally-guided Whisky Walk to learn the history of Hellyers Road Distillery and discover the art of whisky-making. You can even bottle and wax seal your own bottle of Hellyers Road, complete with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. Visit the Visitor Interpretation Centre and relax with a whiskey or vodka in the tasting bar and lounge or enjoy delicious Tasmanian cuisine in the restaurant. The Centre also has a retail shop where you can choose from the range of Hellyers Road products.
