37% ABV 700 ml
Here we have a very interesting piece of Tasmanian whisky history in the form of a bottle of Sullivans Cove Blended Premium Whisky “continuing the tradition from 1822”, as stated on both the front and back labels. The latter goes on to proclaim “Superior whisky made from the finest quality barley and the purest water in the world, to produce smooth, fine, old-fashioned Sullivans Cove whisky”. Quite a statement when one considers that the bottle actually holds a blended Scotch whose origins are believed to be Invergordon Distillers Ltd., a perfectly respectable company then very active in the export of bulk blended whisky for bottling locally.
The front label also notes that the whisky “commemorates the opening of the Tasmania Distillery, December, 1994”. However it also explains - in very small letters - that the 700ml contents are “the product of Scotland” and that the ABV is 37%. But, as we say, it is a piece of whisky history and it found its way to the UK where, legally, it would not now meet the criteria to be called whisky because of its low alcoholic strength. One for the archive rather than the bar!
