Sullivans Cove Whisky

Sullivans Cove is the spot where the British first established the settlement that would grow into the City of Hobart, Tasmania. Being a penal colony, the locals were quite fond of a drink with 16 legal distilleries and countless illegal stills operating by 1824. However, in 1838 Governor John Franklin imposed a total prohibition on distilling that lasted 150 years and was only overturned in the early 1990s! Sullivans Cove has since won several prestigious awards, the most recent of which was The World's Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2014 for their French Oak Whisky.
