CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF AUSTRALIAN CRAFT DISTILLING.

12 May 2022 12:07 PM | Anonymous

Australian whiskies are some of the world’s best, consistently recognised for their quality and innovation. Time and again, they have won over discerning judges to bring home coveted international awards, delighting whisky fans along the way.

In 2022 we celebrate 30 years of contemporary Australian craft distilling. This modern story began in 1992 when Bill and Lyn Lark were granted the first licence to distil whisky in Tasmania since 1839, becoming the first Australian distillery to produce single malt spirit in 154 years.

On the 30-year anniversary of Australian craft distilling, we invited you to join with the ‘Godfather of Australian Whisky’, Bill Lark, to create a special blend to celebrate this significant milestone. The response was nothing short of incredible. Thirty-six Australian distilleries contributed their carefully crafted spirits, which were then expertly blended by Bill to create The Big Blend.

While this unique whisky is not available for sale, all participants of the 2022 Australian Distillers conference will receive a specially packaged and labelled bottle of this very special blend. This extraordinary collaboration of Australian Distillers members reflects 30 years of passion, creativity, dedication, entrepreneurship, and true Australian spirit. Australian Distillers extends our appreciation and thanks to all of the distilleries who contributed whisky to The Big Blend.
