After a busy day we all got changed ready to go out for a sit down Meal with some of the people who where part of the Founding Distilleries in Tasmania paired with a nice meal, The Distilleries featured tonight where Lark, Overeem , Sullivans Cove and Hellyers. The event was compared by the wonderful Lachlen andJulian from Whisky and Alemont in Melbourne at The Tesoro restaurant in the Movenpick Hotel in Hobart Each distillery had two drams to share. The line up of people explaining about the drams changed due to sickness but it was still a great night with some amazing stories from each of the representatives. Throughout the night between meals some of the speakers and other people from the distilleries came around and had a chat to the guests. The line up of people was amazing, The Godfather of Australian Whisky Bill Lark and his lovely wife Lynn, Casey and Gretta Overeem, Patrick Maguire ex Sullivans, The only person really missing was Mark Littler from Hellyers, Hellyers sent the current CEO to the event. We hear great stories from all the distilleries about the past and the future. Including the fact the Sullivans are taking the process of making the wort in house. Chatting to some of the guests myself and we even had a lovely couple from the USA who had come down to Tasmania to do present at a conference for the Taxi Industry in Australia. They seemed to have a great night. After the event we had an early night due to having more distillery visits planned for Friday and another couple of events.
