  • Easy to find location in the city with friendly staff. Had the standard flight and was surprised with the Symphony No 1 which is the only blend amongst the other single malts on the flight. It was...

  • As a tourist it was hard to find time to visit this place. Their hours are 12-7 every day - not exactly whisky drinking hours, at least for me. But we made it by and glad we did. Bartenders are well informed about the whisky, I got a full education with the flight I had (highly recommend that route). The whisky itself is astonishingly good, as we found over most of Tasmania. Subdued, sophisticated but approachable atmosphere. Be advised, entrance is not on street front. We had to wind our way through an alley and past a delivery truck to find the front door.
  • After a day walking through Hobart and consuming an early dinner we stopped here. The atmosphere and tasting area set the tone. We sat down and were given a tasting menu. The selection was diverse and the pricing was high. We each made our selections and enjoyed the one to two tastes we got from each glass. Any thoughts of taking on home was dashed when I saw the $200 to $400 price for a bottle of the whiskey I liked the best. Our stay was short, our bill was high but we did enjoy the time we were here.
