Tasmanian Whisky Now Topping “World’s Best” Lists

Nant Distilling Company, a small distillery in the Tasmanian highlands, has been making headlines. According to Business Insider, the distillery was awarded two medals in the World Spirit Awards, including a gold medal for their single-malt whisky matured in sherry barrels.

The distillery is situated atop a historic property near Bothwell in Tasmania. With a sandstone water-driven mill and the ability to grow its own barley, Nant sets itself apart from other distilleries by being one of just a handful of farm-based whisky distilleries throughout the world.
