Old Hobart Distillery is a boutique distillery located in Blackmans Bay Tasmania producing premium hand-crafted Single Malt Whisky.
‘Overeem Single Malt Whisky’ is made from the finest ingredients Tasmania has to offer with barley to rival the finest in the world and water recognised as the cleanest.
Old Hobart Distillery began as a family-owned business, with operations headed by Casey Overeem. Casey’s interest in the industry started back in the early 1980s when he had his first experience of distilling at a relative’s house in Norway. “Many people had micro-distilleries in their cellars and I really admired them, so I started experimenting when I got home” said Casey.
After much research, realisation dawned that Tasmania offers the perfect climate and ingredients for the production of single malt whisky. Following years of research and experimentation, Old Hobart Distillery secured a distiller’s licence in 2005.
A trip to Scotland, the spiritual home of all whiskies shortly followed with visits to around 15 distilleries to gain a better knowledge of the whole distillation process. Casey is thankful that everyone was open to offering advice and sharing information!
Old Hobart Distillery mature the majority of their whisky in ex-Port and ex-Sherry French Oak and ex-Bourbon American Oak barrels. These hand-selected barrels have been cut down to 100 litre (quarter cask) capacity. These quarter cask barrels produce an intense whisky of incredible character and flavour profile.
