The Geographe Distillery is located at the Old Coast Rd Brewery in Western Australia’s beautiful southwest region. Since establishment in 2008 it has been quietly perfecting the craft of producing premium quality spirits and liqueurs such as Bellwether single-malt whisky, Beacon Gin and Limoncello.
Whisky maker Steven Ryan arrived at distilling and in particular whisky making by accident, initially via winemaking and then brewing. He often found himself sampling a new brew and wondering what it would be like putting the liquid in a still.
Steven Ryan’s explanation………
“Distilling has the effect of decreasing volume but increasing power! Having less of something often makes it more potent. The act of distilling allows the distiller to concentrate the original product and bring certain qualities into focus. The real trick is to bring the good stuff into focus whilst removing the not so good stuff. Finally, if you’ve kept the right bits and not the wrong bits what you’re left with, after a few years spent resting in a ‘good’ cask, is whisky”.
