Ready to go behind the scenes? During Tasmanian Whisky Week, Launceston Distillery will be opening the Hangar doors to host a number of behind the scenes tours, with the opportunity to meet our Head Distiller, Chris Condon. Launceston Distillery is not yet open to the public for tours, so this a unique opportunity!
Launceston Distillery sits proudly in the heart of Tasmania, based at Launceston Airport’s Hangar 17 – the state’s oldest surviving aviation building. Our home is the gateway to Northern Tasmania, a region rich in natural beauty and renowned for its premium food, wine and, now, whisky. Launceston Distillery is the first traditional whisky producer in Launceston to gain a production licence since the Caledonian Distillery closed 170 years ago.
At Launceston Distillery we are relentless in our search to produce the highest quality whisky from the finest Tasmanian ingredients. Using traditional techniques, care and patience, our goal is excellence in every bottle of whisky.
