Australian Single Malt Whisky List

Australia Whisky

To complement the list of Australian RumGin and Vodka on the blog,  I’ve have compiled the following list of commercial producers of both blended, rye and malt whisky.

No doubt I’ve missed a few, so drop me a line if you’ve one to contribute. There are several new distilleries coming on line in 2016/17 – mainly in Tasmania, so I’ll add those as we go.

Many of these have come online since the early 90’s and are fast establishing a reputation for excellent, especially the single malts.
