The Adams Distillery was established in 2015 by two mates, Adam Pinkard and Adam Saunders in Tasmania. In Early 2016, the two friends ran into a major hurdle when the property they had acquired to house their distillery was rejected by Launceston council with a majority vote. The disappointment was soon met with absolute elation when the owner of Glen Ireh Estate (35 Drummond Street Perth, Tasmania) agreed to have them build the distillery on his sprawling acreage. Bernie, the property owner was so impressed with Adams & Adams business plan, he also became an equal partner.
Now fast forward three short years to 2019 and after a multiple stage expansion plan, the distillery now has the capacity to produce 1,000,000 litres of whisky a year, with a first-stage 800L per day spirit production capacity.
To add to the Adams story, three paddocks at the Glen Ireh Estate have also been planted with 140 acres of two-row Westminster barley. If the barley reaches malt one standard, they will have the ability to make around 40,000L of estate grown Single Malt Whisky.
With multiple single malt whisky releases already on the market, the sky’s definitely the limit as Adams Distillery is equipped to be a real player on the world stage.
