Old Kempton Distillery recently hosted a lunch (and more) for our group of 20+ and the experience was memorable. It consisted of a three course set menu, whiskey and gin tastings and a tour of the distillery. Organised and managed by Erin, the cellar-door and catering manager, her team worked hard to ensure we had a very enjoyable afternoon.
Our table settings (3 tables of 8) were elegant, the service was friendly, efficient and professional and the food generous in quantity and delicious in taste. The building (Dysart House) and its gorgeous furnishings made this a unique and well above average setting for our event.

Did a tour + tasting on a miserable June day and was not disappointed.

Got to try a few samples out of the barrel in the rickhouse which was AWESOME.

Followed up by further tasting inside which was also great.

The whiskey is not cheap - towards the higher end, even on the Tassie scale - but the products are quality.

Can't recommend this enough.

I participated in the Distillery School in March 2021. It was a fantastic experience where I learn so much and stoked my passion for whisky. Mark was an excellent teacher and the rest of the team were so welcoming and ready to share their knowledge and experience. Very glad I attended as will keep the knowledge obtained for the rest of my life. Highly recommend if you are serious about learning more about the technical aspects of whisky distilling.

After 24 whisky samplers in an advent calendar my husband received; his favourite whisky was by far the Sherry Cask from Old Kempton Distillery, so on a recent visit to Tasmania, of course we had to go and visit the cellar door and do a tour.
My husband really enjoyed the informative tour and of course the tastings along the way.
I enjoyed a really nice coffee and a shop in the gift shop.
My husband bought himself a bottle of the sherry cask strength whisky and has also joined their whisky club.
This is a small boutique distillery and I hope they keep it that way.
We'll be back, one day!

What a great place, staff are super friendly and welcoming.
Dysart House is stunning and the dining options sensational.
Highly recommend indulging in lunch before doing the tour and relaxing in the lounge area.
John our guide was lovely and the tour very informative on the whisky making process.
The tastings provide a good variety of the items produced by the distillery.

This whole experience was amazing, my wife and I came down from Melbourne to visit Tassie and Old Kempton Distillery was definitely a highlight. The people were awesome, sharing there knowledge and being so friendly, as a result we stayed for lunch. The food was as tasty as the excellent whisky. We talk about going back often, and will do so as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we are buy much whisky, top notch drams.

We had lunch (some yummy pies) then went on the distillery tour. My husband loves whisky and thoroughly enjoyed the tour and tastings (getting to drink most of mine too!). The guide was fun and happy to answer our questions. Good value for money.
