Tasmanian Whisky

Our current premium selection of whiskies at Fannys Bay, have been maturating in a variety of casks, from French Oak to ex-bourbon to Pinot Noir Barrels.

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 and Pinot barrels lying in bond.

Tasmanian Whisky Week

Our Tasmanian Whisky

Fannys Bay Distillery is located at Tam O’Shanter, on the wild and windswept north coast of Tasmania. It’s the perfect spot to defrost your fingers after a day of exploring the region’s character-filled towns. For Mathew Cooper, the journey to whisky-making started with local people and simple curiosity.

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.

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.

Happy Customers


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.
