CRADLE MOUNTAIN WHISKY
Time and quality is our whisky philosophy
Our whisky is made in the North-West of Tasmania, a small island just a hop down south of the Australian Continent. To this day, Tasmania remains a land of pristine wilderness, fertile soils and unspoiled waters.
Our story began in 1989, when the founders of Cradle Mountain Whisky recognized that the rich volcanic soil of North Tasmania gave a particular life to the quality of the grain found in the region. They found that by combining the local grains with the water collected from the foothills of the Tasmanian Highlands that they were able to produce an incredibly fine single malt whisky.

CRADLE MOUNTAIN SINGLE MALT WHISKY
“AGED 17 YEARS”
Tasmania’s oldest commercially produced single malt was aged in barrel 7321 in November 1997 for 17 years and bottled at 43 per cent strength.
A knock out malt. Faultlessly clean stuff with lots of new oak character but sufficient body to guarantee complexity."
- Jim Murray's tasting notes of our 17 year old Single Malt Whisky
It is a pale straw colour with fresh leather, waxed fruit, perhaps lemon-grass, and hay in the aroma. Very soft body with a smooth palate which is clean-tasting (no doubt deriving in part from the local water). Fruit-skins, citrus and lemon-grass in the palate. Fruity acidity in the finish, then a surge of mustard and pepper."
