This is the very first cask-strength, single malt whisky release from Old Kempton Distillery. Released in very small quantities to commemorate William Henry Ellis who was the founder of Dysart House where the distillery is currently located in Kempton, Tasmania. Mr Ellis was a convict who was transported from England to Tasmania in 1827 for the crime of embezzlement and was granted a special release soon after his arrival, and by 1838 was licensed to sell spirits in the Tasmanian Midlands.
So as an ode to the past, this inaugural cask strength expression showcases the purest Tasmanian barley and water, handcrafted at the distillery and matured in specially-selected ex-pinot oak casks.
A rare release for the Australian whisky collector or drinking enthusiast alike!
