Every once in a while, we find something exceptional in our warehouse; a different kind of barrel from our usual French and American oak casks. It might be wine, virgin oak, refill or something else entirely, but if we decide to give it a green label, you can be sure it’s something incredibly special and rare.
Each barrel is unique, producing only a few hundred bottles. So, each time another bottle of Special Cask is opened, a new page in the distillery’s story is turned.
A superior small-batch Tasmanian Dry Gin.
This seductively rich spirit is double distilled in our pot still from our island’s barley and soft water, and enriched with four native Australian botanicals – lemon myrtle, anise myrtle, lanceolata & wattleseed.
Indulge your senses and taste our splendid isolation.
Sullivans Cove French Oak cask HH525 was voted the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the 2014 World Whisky Awards – the first time a whisky from somewhere other than Scotland or Japan has been awarded this honour.
We recognise that our French Oak is now in high demand, while stocks remain limited. In order to ensure that everyone has a chance to get a bottle, we will endeavour to release small batches of our most recent French Oak casks on most Wednesdays throughout the year, depending upon availability.
Sullivans Cove is the quintessential small-batch luxury whisky. Inspired by nature and Distilled With Conviction, Sullivans Cove was named the world’s best single malt whisky at the World Whiskies Awards. Made with traditional methods using only pure Tasmanian ingredients, each barrel is individually bottled to capture subtle variations – and the result is one of the best whiskies on the market.
Tasmania’s convict uniforms – or ‘magpies’ – bore the distinctive broad arrow symbol to show that both clothes and prisoner belonged to the Crown. The Maguire forefathers originally came to Tasmania in the mid-1800s as ‘guests’ of His Majesty, and upon earning their freedom made the island their home. Today, Sullivans Cove proudly displays the broad arrow on their Sullivans Cove whisky – inspired by nature’s rich bounty and Distilled With Conviction.
