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, Shiraz and Pinot barrels lying in bond.
Award Winning Tasmanian Whisky
What an exciting week for team Fannys Bay, not only did we win the “Entrepreneur of the Year” at the Business & Excellence awards, proudly sponsored by Bell Bay Aluminium.
We also won Silver for our Sherry aged cask, and Bronze for our Port aged cask, in the Perth Royal Distilled Spirits Awards in WA.
“Receiving a medal in any of our categories is one of the highest achievements for any producer to attain and I would like to convey my congratulations to each of our deserving winners.”
Paul Carter, President RASWA.
So proud to be part of the Fannys Bay team, cheers Irene

Tasmanian Devils – by Rant and Whisky
Julie and Mathew are the most engaging of hosts. They are very proud to talk about their drams, their production methods and whisky in general. During an extremely pleasurable (and educative) couple hours in their company I tasted my way through four whiskies and a cup of coffee. Then, as a “leaving present”, they gave me a large sample of their latest, magnificent, pinot-matured whisky.
This is a story about a shipwreck and a beautiful opera singer. It is a story about the wild and rugged north coasts of Tasmania and the Top End. It is a story about passionate men, who share a love for the sea, it’s stories, surfing and a shot of fine whisky. It is a story about the two Fannys (a Fanny and a Fannie), which are the names of a unique and special beverage. And it is a story about connection.
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.
The most impressive offering we had was the CS Port cask at 63%abv, I was expecting fire cracking mouth play but instead surprised by how mellow and wholesome the flavours were! Dare I say, it was the BEST Port cask I’ve tasted in recent memory. More content to come from this distillery. Thank you Mathew & Julie.

Just a quick thank you for showing Tracey and I around your unique operation and sharing your story and passion for whisky 🥃 making. Your distillery and the products created which we tasted are certainly something you can be very proud of achieving. You certainly have inspired my ‘spiritual’ addiction that little bit more 😉. I look forward to settling back and enjoying ‘Barrel 47’ and of course many more to come & we will keep an eager eye on your upcoming whiskys.
