Whisky maker Sullivans Cove will return to the Hobart waterfront – near the brickworks site where it was established 27 years ago.
The business will repurpose and extend Huon Quays’ century old Drill Hill at 17 McVilly Drive as a visitor experience centre and manufacturing plant.
The distillery moved from Sullivans Cove to Cambridge in 2004; its production and cellar door enterprise there is a major tourist attraction.
“In relocating back to the Hobart waterfront…we are coming home to where our story began almost three decades ago,” the scotch producer’s managing director, Adam Sable, said (story continues below).
Head distiller Heather Tillott added the move “will be done delicately and mindfully from a production perspective”.
Seven years ago, a Sullvans Cove French Oak won the World Whisky Awards for world’s best single malt brew.
