Hellyer's Road Distillery started life adjacent to a milk plant in the lush landscape of North West Tasmania, where some of the world's purest drinking water is blown in by the Roaring Forties.

Named after Henry Hellyer, the explorer and cartographer who carved the road leading to the distllery, Hellyer's Road Distillery was, surprisingly, founded by a group of dairy farmers. Now a wholly owned susbisdiary of Betta Milk, a 100% Tasmanian owned and operated company, Hellyers Road has become the largest boutique distillery in the country with exports to 21 European countries and Japan.

The Distillery's Visitor Centre is itself is a major tourist attraction in the region with tastings and tours on offer.

Since the first whiskies were sold in 2006, Hellyer's Road has grown in both capacity and distinction, winning awards around the world. Today their Original Single Malt Whisky is now also a key ingredient in their delicious whisky cream liqueurs. Here are tasting notes for the three varieties available at independent and major retailers nationally.
