Distillery

Overeem

Better known by the name of its founder and the product – Overeem – the distillery itself was originally called Old Hobart, although it was far from “old” and was not actually in Hobart but sat alongside the Overeem family home at Blackman’s Bay. Overeem was for a short time in common ownership with Australian Whisky Holdings under Lark, which in part reflected the long-standing friendship and close association between Bill Lark and Casey Overeem. However, ownership of the brand was returned to the Overeem family in 2020.

 Overeem is an important component in the early history of Tasmanian whisky development and we are delighted to present some seriously significant early Overeems as part of our Tasmanian Historic Collection.
