Redrawing the boundaries of Tasmania into five whisky shires and then journeying across each one, Bernard Lloyd visits every Tasmanian whisky distillery to discover their distinctive and innovative ways of Tasmanian whisky making.
His pioneering journey shows how Tasmania’s native peats and barley strains, its climate and its water, together with its people—farmers, scientists, maltsters, brewers, distillers, coppersmiths, coopers, law-makers, excise officers and brand ambassadors—combine to make the island’s whisky spirits.
In return, the stimulating influence of the whisky on the people is also explored.
