World Whiskies Awards

SCFOSullivans Cove was named best craft distillery outside the United Kingdom.

Sullivans Cove owner Patrick Maguire said the award, which came after the distillery won world’s best whisky last year, had cemented Tasmania’s reputation internationally.

“This has told me that the outside world and the giants of the whisky distilling industry have accepted what we’re doing and to me that’s a mind-blowing thing,” he said.

“I thought it would take many, many more years before we got to this level.”
