Thanks for the great review. As Phill mentioned "Even if you don't like whisky....." I have other Belgrove drinks that are not whiskies or even strong spirits. Black Rye Coffee Liqueur is a favourite and there is also Pommeau, Apricot Liqueur and Pineapple liqueur. If...More

Thanks for the great review Matthew. I still had enough daylight to move the sheep. Just as well I did because some of them would have been stranded on a small island by the flooding river, from that beautiful soaking rain you mentioned.

The surroundings of the farm and buildings, the great personality of the owner Peter and the superb paddock to bottle whisky all made on the Belgrove estate made this our favourite distillery in Tasmania.

Thanks very much for the 5 star review Randolph. I hear that "favourite distillery" comment a lot, not just Tasmanian but occasionally "in the world"

I've been to many distilleries but Belgrave is the best by far! Their knowledge and mastery is second to none. You definitely should not miss the opportunity to have a look at how it should be done.
