About Our Whisky Distillery

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 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, Shiraz and Pinot barrels lying in bond.

Happy Customer

Allison and I had a fantastic time in Tassie for whisky week. We wanted to show our gratitude to Mathew 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.

Whisky Talks

Tasmanian Whisky Distillers

​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.

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.
