HOBART | Sullivans Cove Distillery in Cambridge, just near Hobart International Airport, is one of the most internationally known of Tasmania’s distillers, and helped put Tasmanian whisky on the map when its French Oak cask HH525 was voted the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the 2014 World Whisky Awards. This was the first time that a whisky outside Scotland or Japan had won the award, and since then the reputation of Tasmanian whisky has skyrocketed.

Sullivans Cove Distillery was founded in 1994 at Sullivans Cove in the heart of Hobart, when a 150 year ban on distilling in the city was overturned. Sullivans Cove single malt whiskies are made using only Tasmanian ingredients, and are non-chill-filtered, resulting in some fantastic whisky. One of the key ingredients in whisky is water, and Sullivans Cove use Tasmanian rainforest water for its whiskys, which is considered some of the cleanest water in the world.

Sullivans Cove use three types of barrels when aging their whisky, French oak barrels with a 300 litre capacity, 200 litre American oak bourbon barrels and port barrels. The best way to get a feel for the differences of each is to try a tasting flight at the distillery. $30 gets you a nip of all three whiskys, plus a taste of their Hobart No 4 gin and Fire Drum vodka, which are all fantastic. An extra $10 will get you a guided tour of the distillery. Tours take place on the hour, but do call ahead to make sure there’s availability when you want to visit.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
