Hellyers Road Distillery is Australia’s largest boutique whisky distillery located in pristine dairy-farming country on the outskirts of Burnie.
First spirits were released to the market in 2006 and in 2012 the distillery celebrated its first aged statement single malt – 10 Year, followed in 2014 by the release of its 12 Year. The 10 Year remains Australia’s best-selling, locally crafted whisky with the 12 Year also much sought after.
In 2010 Hellyers Road Peated was awarded Australia’s Best Whisky by the Malt Whisky Society of Australia and in 2013 its Pinot Noir Finish varietal was anointed Best New World Whisky in blind tastings conducted at Whisky Live – Paris. Hellyers Road whiskies can now be found throughout Europe with Japan also a key export market.
The Hellyers Road Brand is leveraged from the exploits of Van Diemans Land Company explorer and surveyor Henry Hellyer, who in the early 1800’s discovered and charted much of the rugged north west region of Tasmania, including the very road Hellyers Road Distillery now stands on. His tenacious spirit and thirst for adventure are the inspiration behind these beautifully crafted single malt whiskies from the Island State of Tasmania. Henry Hellyer’s significant legacy is poignantly captured on all of the company’s whisky labelling and packaging.
