“Talk & Taste” Session

Book an appointment for a “talk & taste” session with Mathew, listen to him share his love & passion for whisky and share his journey.

Welcome to Fannys Bay Distillery

Fannys Bay Artisan Distillery is situated on the windswept Northern Coast of Tasmania at the home of Mathew & Julie Cooper. The Coopers have brought whisky making to the northern region of Tasmania. In 2014 distilling commenced and the first barrel was put down in November of that year. Today the distillery’s production is well under way with a selection of Bourbon, Port, Sherry and Pinot barrels lying in bond.

Our Tasmanian Whisky!

Our current premium selection of whiskies at Fannys Bay, have been maturing in wooden barrels made from French oak, to give them their unique taste.

The Fannys Bay range of whiskies are described as a smooth mature full palate with a refreshing taste of our northern coastal waters.

Fannys Bay Artisan Distillery Story

Mathew & Julie moved permanently to Tam O’Shanter in 2005 to fulfil their dream of a sea change; Mathew has had an affinity with Tam O’Shanter since his younger days when he would surf the breaks at Tama point.

Tasmanian Whisky Distillery

Tasmania has some of the purest sea breezes, assisting us in creating the unique flavours with saliferous undertones, which our customers have come to expect from Fannys Bay Distillery.

Happy Customers


Allison and I had a fantastic time in Tassie for whisky week. We wanted to show our gratitude to Matthew and Julie for their hospitality in showing us around the distillery. I’ve already cracked my bourbon cask single malt that i bought and looking forward to trying many more.

- Wes and Allison Harder
