Hartshorn Sheep Whey Distillery

The world’s first Sheep Whey Distillery. Hartshorn Distillery is a new Tasmanian micro distillery making boutique batches of Vodka and Gin from our own sheep whey. We are the first in the world to create this unique product. We are proud to be the smallest distillery in Australia making small ten-bottle batches using a 50 litre glass column still. Each bottle and label is hand painted by head distiller Ryan, so you can display it proudly amongst your collection. Ryan and his family run Grandvewe Cheeses in Birchs Bay, located deep in Tasmania’s south.
When making cheese, the whey is often discarded and put to little use. Ryan has spent the last two years discovering how to turn the complex sugars held within the whey protein and convert them into a basic sugars to then ferment into alcohol and eventually distill. The resulting distillate has a delicately sweet bouquet and extremely smooth finish, thanks to the dairy influence and unfiltered methods.
