whisky1pmTASMANIAN whisky producers have achieved yet another coup, with one of the state’s single malts going on sale at London department store Harrods.

Sullivans Cove single malt whisky, made by Tasmania Distillery, has been judged by the famous luxury store as Australia’s best and will form part of its new “whiskies of the world” showcase. Sullivans Cove head distiller Patrick Maguire will leave the state today to attend the showcase launch.

“It’s a huge opportunity for us to put our brand out there,” Mr Maguire said.

He has been invited to host a series of in-store tastings for shoppers plus a private tasting for a group of Harrods’ 50 best customers.

“I imagine it will be a pretty exclusive database,” Mr Maguire said.

Like other Tasmanian whisky producers, including Lark Distillery, Sullivans Cove has achieved considerable recognition overseas, including “Liquid Gold status”, as declared by British whisky authority Jim Murray.
