Adams Distillery is a farm distillery located just outside of Perth, the “gateway” to Launceston when heading north from Hobart. Tucked away on the dirt roads of Glen Ireh Estate Farm, you will typically find the large distillery doors opened wide to allow the Tasmanian sun to shine in on their two copper pot stills.
Adams was started by two friends native to Launceston named Adam Pinkard and Adam Saunders. The official start date for whisky production was October 2016 and they are utilizing alternative grains and malts to achieve distinctive flavour profiles. These grains include roasted and pilsner malt along with German barley that has been smoked with beech wood. This entrepreneurial spirit has also led them to experiment with not only grains, but cask types and sizes.
Rapid expansion has taken place under their joint management with plenty of room for experimentation which makes Adams Distillery a place to watch
Adams brought their First Release to the market in December 2018.
