Official tasting notes.
Unmistakeable French oak creates a perfect balance with the sweet sherry cask on the palate. Distinct flavours of stewed fruits, maple and raisins are carried nicely by the malt spirit which stands out of the glass.

The Derwent Distilling Co. is a small family-owned business set up by Robbie and Emma Gilligan on the banks of the Derwent River, in Dromedary Tasmania. They chose the name ‘Derwent Distillery’ in tribute to one of the first legalised distilleries in Tasmania, originally set up on the banks of the Hobart Rivulet in South Hobart. Robbie distils all his whisky at Old Kempton at the moment.
