“Hints of oak and malt at the front followed by all the yummy Christmas cake spices you’d expect from a tawny cask. lovely long finish that invites you to sip again..”

This is Killara’s first release for 2023, it’s limited-edition expression that was aged in a 100L tawny cask that was decanted in January 2023, yielding 164 bottles. Approachable, complex and ready to go, you can’t go wrong with whisky from this distillery as Killara has well and truly achieved the magic word that many Aussie distilleries aspire to, and that is…. “Consistency”. Consistently great in our opinion!
About Killara Distillery
The distillery was established in 2016 by Kristy Lark-Booth and is located at 32 Ogilvie Lane Richmond, about 30min from Hobart in Tasmania. It’s the first distillery to be owned and operated by a second-generation distiller. The name Killara is a nod to Kristy’s parents, Bill & Lyn Lark who started the modern-day whisky industry in Australia back in 1992. Killara is the name of the street where Kristy grew up where the first distillery was registered over 150 years after the last distillery in Hobart closed its doors.
