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.
