Sullivan’s Cove: Tasmanian Whisky Named World’s Best

Steve Colquhoun at Fairfax:

Tasmanian distillery Sullivan’s Cove has been named the world’s best single malt whisky at the World Whiskies Award held on Thursday night in London.

Sullivan’s Cove’s French Oak Cask variety was judged the global winner, as well as Australia’s best, from a high-quality pool of single malt entries. They included Scotland’s Bunnahabain, Aberfeldy, Glenkinchie and Glenlivet distilleries, as well as Japanese powerhouse Yamazaki.

Great job lads. It’s a little bit out of my league price-wise ($138.99 from Dan Murphys at time of writing) but damn good to see Aussies getting some recognition for making fine spirits.
