The Sullivans Cove Story
The birthplace of Tasmanian whisky, Sullivans Cove on the River Derwent was where the British, in 1804, established the settlement that would go on to become the vibrant, beautiful port city of Hobart.
In the days of the harsh penal colony, the locals were understandably fond of a drink – with 16 legal distilleries and countless illegal stills operating by 1824. However, in 1838 Governor John Franklin imposed a total prohibition on distilling – a ban that would last for 150 years.
With the ban finally overturned in the early 1990s, Sullivans Cove whisky was established in 1994 – right in the heart of the Cove – inspired by the traditional home of Tasmanian whisky.
Underpinned by its rich heritage and with unsurpassed natural ingredients, Tasmanian whisky has developed into a significant force on the global scene – with Sullivans Cove whisky leading the charge.
