THE WESTERN TIERS DISTILLERY
It’s not often that a fabricator involved in the building of a distillery, has the opportunity to become its distiller!
That is exactly what John Scott, a long time boilermaker and craftsman has done. From installing our very own Stillsmiths Stills and distilling equipment to operating the distillery is a pathway that John is embracing.
John is mentored by Master Distiller Damian Mackey, famous for creating Tasmania’s distinctively rich, triple-distilled spirits.
Our distillery is now open for tours.

At the heart of our new distillery are the unique and beautiful copper pot stills, designed by Stillsmiths Tasmania, handcrafted by Kolmark at their Westbury workshop from the highest quality copper sourced from Europe.
Utilising a state-of-the-art control system, Stillsmiths Tasmania has created a fully automated next generation distillery which means at Western Tiers Distillery we can focus on our passion; creating spirits of unmatched smoothness and flavour.
