What does your day of Whisky & Gin Tasting/Touring look like?
Here's a snapshot of how the day will unfold as you go behind the scenes of the distillation process, meet the whisky makers & learn about the specific ingredients & components that combine to give your personal taste-buds a real appreciation for these highly sought after, delicious Tasmanian Spirits.....
The day starts with introductions & a morning latte/tea at a centrally located Cafe, before journeying into the beautiful countryside to visit a handful of the carefully chosen distilleries on any given day. You'll sample over a dozen spirits throughout your day. A scrumptious local lunch with more tastings awaits. Often served overlooking picturesque vineyards at a winery, you'll admire the scenery & the food. The afternoon will take you to 1-2 more distilleries for touring and tastings before our time together comes to an end, but not before you enjoy a final dram together at the Lark Cellar Door back in Central Hobart.
Meet your whisky/gin host & driver & travel between the distilleries in style!

To enable us to prepare a more detailed itinerary and quote (all obligation free, of course!), here’s what we need from you:
Choose your ideal dates to travel (we recommend Thursdays - Sundays)
Guestimate the size of your group (bringing a group of 6, you get the entire whisky/gin guide/driver and vehicle to yourselves so it becomes a private tour). If it's fewer than 6, you simply join our existing small group departure tours.
Choose your ideal duration (3 nights is ideal BUT if time is precious, we can do a 2 night package)
Choose your standard of accommodation. We have great rates at Crowne Plaza, Macq01, Salamanca Inn (& more)
Let us know if you have any specific requests / needs (eg. specify actual distilleries they’d like to visit etc.)
