MEET THE MAKERS

Uncover the stories, the dedication and the passion that drives each one of Tasmania’s whisky-makers.

 

Peter Bignell

Belgrove
Part scientific mastermind, part agricultural genius, part superb whisky-maker; there’s nobody in Tasmanian whisky like Peter Bignell. Maker of Australia’s only straight rye whisky, Peter runs his distillery on reused oil from his local takeaway shop.

Bill Lark

Lark Distillery
There’d hardly even be a Tasmanian whisky industry without Bill Lark. After deciding he wanted to open a distillery, he overturned a 19th century law and legalised whisky-making in Tasmania. Not bad for a bloke who just wanted to indulge his love for single malt.

Mark Nicholson

Lark
Mark was a schoolteacher when his friend Bill Lark “popped the question” and asked Mark to join him at Lark Distillery. As the guide for Lark’s whisky tours, you won’t find a better storyteller in all of Tasmanian whisky.

Jane Overeem

Overeem Distillery
With her dad, Casey, distilling whisky in the garage, it was probably inevitable Jane would also develop a love for the spirit. She’s championing the brilliance of Tasmanian whisky to a new generation, showing that a good single malt is something everyone can appreciate.

Casey Overeem

Overeem Distillery
After retiring, Casey decided to indulge into his passion: making whisky. But what started as a late-life dalliance has turned into one of Tasmania’s most acclaimed whiskies. So much for a peaceful retirement.
