Redlands TIB Release Cask RD 009 Port Cask Single Malt Whisky - Historic

$295 AUD
500 ml


This is the second single cask whisky from Redlands distillery under the TIB label. This time it has been matured in a carefully selected ex-port barrel at the Tasmanian Independent Bottlers (TIB)/Heartwood premises south of Hobart.

Although Redlands/Old Kempton has released a number of official expressions these have been intermittent and in limited numbers for each issue and so independent bottlings such as this one are all the more welcome. This port barrel was hand selected by Tim Duckett, who knows a thing or three about wood, and is numbered as Cask TIB RD 009.

The whisky was bottled in February, 2018 but the date of distillation and filling is unstated – probably at between 2 and 3 years old, which, for this distillery, is just about right.

This product is located in Australia.



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.
