Fannys Bay Distillery is situated on the windswept Northern Coast of Tasmania at the home of Mathew & Julie Cooper. The Coopers have brought whisky making to the northern region of Tasmania.

Mathew & Julie moved permanently to Tam O’Shanter in 2005 to fulfil their dream of a sea change; Mathew has had an affinity with Tam O’Shanter since his younger days when he would surf the breaks at Tama point.

After Mathew left his position as trade training manager at Launceston TAFE he decided he needed a new project, one that wouldn’t take him far from home. Always up for a new challenge, and having followed a wide variety of projects in his life another new adventure was not going to faze him.

During an evening over a couple of whiskies a discussion with friends came up on how you would make a good whisky. Mathew was heard to say “it can’t be that hard”. So with his usual enthusiasm he started researching & experimenting – building a small still resembling Mr Squiggle as the prototype.

Things became serious when Mathew designed and built his own full size still, the workshop had become Fannys Bay Artisan Distillery.

In 2014 distilling commenced and the first barrel was put down in November of that year. Today the distillery’s production is well under way with a selection of Bourbon, Port, Sherry and Pinot barrels lying in bond. Waiting for the distilling process to create this unique whisky flavour from the North of Tassie.
