Directions to The Nant Distillery
The Nant Distillery is a farm-based whisky distillery, one of only a handful in the world. The single malt whisky is produced on the heritage listed Nant Estate at Bothwell in the Central Highlands.
In 2004 the Nant Estate was purchased by the Batt family. Mainly a farm breeding Angus cattle and Suffolk sheep, the Batt family set about restoring some of the historic elements of the property, such as the old water-driven flour mill (about 1823), the convict built sandstone homestead and the farm complex. In 2005 the mill's use was extended to include a full production whisky distillery, private tasting room and an atrium lounge and whisky bar. Over 10 Heritage listed buildings on the Estate have been preserved and many form part of the distillery complex.
Now home to the Nant Distillery, the old water-driven flour mill is used to grist the malted barley in the time-honoured craft of distilling whisky.
The Nant Single Malt is made with 100% Tasmanian barley, grown and harvested in the fertile fields of Tasmania.
The focus is to produce a world class whisky with a relatively small number of whisky barrels produced each year to maintain a unique and “boutique style” production facility, certainly quality over quantity.
Maturing takes place in traditional American and French oak casks, which have previously housed port, sherry or bourbon. You can even purchase a 100L uniquely identifiable barrel for Nant to age 4-5years for you.
The Nant Estate welcomes you for tours, Cellar door sales and private Master classes. Accommodation is also available on the estate with many activities to enjoy and explore.
The Cellar door is open daily from 10am to 4pm (Sept to April) or by appointment for complimentary self-guided tours and tastings.
Or you can also see them at the Salamanca Markets in Hobart each Saturday.
