Tasmanian whisky distillery Sullivans Cove was named Best Australian Single Malt at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards, held last night at the Waldorf Hotel in London.

Sullivans Cove French Oak - Named Best Australian Single Malt
at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards

Last year Sullivans Cove French Oak went on to claim the ultimate title at the 2014 World Whiskies Awards when it was named the World’s Best Single Malt. Earlier this year the distillery’s American Oak single malt was awarded a coveted Liquid Gold Award by whisky guru Jim Murray in the 2015 Whisky Bible.

Commenting on the award, Patrick Maguire , Sullivans Cove General Manager, said: "I’m thrilled to be here with the rest of the industry and once again we have had a fantastic result. It’s still quite unbelievable that we keep winning these incredible international awards and it just goes to show the quality of Sullivans Cove as a truly world class single malt whisky."

Sullivans Cove Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky is double distilled using only Tasmanian barley with only the purest wilderness water from local mountains and forests. Matured in hand selected oak casks and allowed to settle and clear naturally, the whiskies retain full, creamy and lingering flavours that are winning fans the world over. Each cask is bottled separately, yielding only around 450 bottles, making each bottle a rare item to own and enjoy.
