    Established in 1994 Sullivans Cove is the quintessential small-batch luxury whisky. Distilled in Hobart, Tasmania, Sullivans Cove single malt is made using traditional methods and 100% Tasmanian ingredients. Inspired by nature and patiently aged the distillers aim to seek the sublime. Each cask is nurtured to it's natural peak, thousands of tiny decisions go into helping each cask reach its full potential. No two batches will be the same and every batch an opportunity for exploration.

    Tasmania has some of the cleanest water in world, making it an ideal place for producing world class whisky. Tasmania also has some of the best barley growing land in Australia. The combination of good grain and good water is the foundation of all good whisky. 100% Tasmanian malted barley is used to make all Sullivans Cove whiskies. The wash is brewed locally by brewers with decades of experience before being double distilled in a unique, Tasmanian built pot still (her name is Myrtle). The first distillation, known as the "wash run" produces "low wines" of about 20% abv. The low wines are then put back through the still for the "spirit run" to produce a spirt of around 70% abv. This spirit is then diluted to 63.5% abv before it enters into the casks for ageing. The majority of whiskies are aged in either 200L American oak ex-bourbon barrels, or 300L French oak ex-tawny barrels. Allowed to mature over many years in the unique Tasmanian climate - generally between nine and eighteen years.

    Special Cask Edition #13 French Oak Apera Finish, TD0073FS, was aged for 12 years, 5 months in a single 300-litre, second fill American Oak cask, before being finished for a further 2 years, 7 months in a French Oak ex-Apera cask, for a total age of 15 years.

    Delightful and exceptional whisky. An excellent union between the spirit and it's two casks: the French Oak and Apera don't sit on top of the aged American Oak whisky… they're part of it. This is the goal of finishing, however not easily reached. The influence from both casks is clear, while also creating a new character together. American Oak second fill: thick, creamy malt, vanilla, orange and chocolate. French Oak Apera: a very fine structural clarity, pomegranate, apples and jam - Heather Tillott, Distillery Manager
