Australia has a vast and diverse landscape, spanning from dusty deserts through to tropical rainforest and sweeping sandy beaches.
As the driest inhabited continent on earth, Australia may not seem a logical country for producing whisky; but with rich natural resources and a long history of distillation expertise, Australia is making some truly exceptional single malt whiskies.
With pristine clean water, the highest quality malted barley, and abundant peat bogs in the cool-climate Tasmanian highlands… it’s little wonder Australia is attracting global recognition for single malt whisky production.
In 2014, an Australian whisky was awarded the coveted title of ‘World’s Best Single Malt Whisky’. This was the first time in the history of the World Whiskies Awards that either Scotland or Japan did not win the top award.
