Gunner’s Cannon - One cannot visit Scotland without seeing the vast network of castles that dot the landscape, adorned with the cannons that defended the North from all manner of invaders.  Tasmania may not have the castles cannons played an important role in its defence and shot towers in Hobart are almost as iconic as the famous distillery pagodas, and inspiring the name of the famous Battery Point. A whisky that hits the palate like a cannonball.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Wonderful fresh orchard fruits lie underneath a rich plum and sugary syrup, all resting in a raw wooden fruit bowl, and surrounded by subtly spiced pasties. (Dark Valley Whisky Company)

Dark Valley Whisky Company was established in 2014 by Alex Moores based on the model of the independent bottlers of Scottish and other world whiskies.

His aim is to bottle all Tasmanian distilleries in a way that showcases the raw and elementary qualities of the different distilleries. He began with three releases featuring whisky distilled at Lark Distillery and the range has since been extended to include Adams, Killara, Launceston, Redlands and Spring Bay.

As at January 2022, Dark Valley has bottled 25 Tasmanian whiskies at cask strength, mostly small runs of about 30 bottles from 20 litre casks.  24 of the 25 expressions have already sold out on the Dark Valley website.

Dark Valley comes from the Gaelic name Glen Dhu, which is the area in Tasmania where Alex grew up and is now the headquarters of Dark Valley Whisky.
