Whilst the original Redlands stock was steadily maturing at the Kempton premises following the move there in 2015, it was thought appropriate to get the Redlands name out there by putting their label on product from another – well-established - Tasmanian distillery. And so, The Old Stable was launched as a 10 years old Sullivans Cove matured in a 300litre barrel to good effect.

Bottled on 23 July 2016 from Sullivans Cove French Oak port cask 03003, also known as HH545. Following the change in name of the distillery from Redlands to Old Kempton, this particular expression has a particular historical significance for Tasmanian whisky lovers. The Old Stable is home to the Distillery's bond room.

This product is located in Australia.

Distillery

Redlands

Redlands Estate whisky was originally produced at the actual Redlands Estate at Plenty in the Derwent Valley in southeast Tasmania. Following a change in ownership in 2015 the whisky production relocated to Dysart House at Kempton with a slight change in name. A further change took place in March 2018 to “Old Kempton” to reflect the distillery’s identity with the local community and to remove confusion with the Redlands Estate in the Derwent Valley.

 The current owners of Old Kempton Distillery are ramping up whisky production at Dysart House, where they have also created an attractive visitors centre and tasting room. The convict-built stables at the rear now form the still house.

 Bottles of Redlands are still extremely rare but that will change as the spirit matures to a point where the team feel that it is time for new releases to appear, but under the Old Kempton label.
