Enjoy a full day of discovering some of Tassie’s hidden gem distilleries of the North, & wrap it all up with a tour of a traditional working Cooperage. Enjoy a gourmet sit down lunch with wine, all while taking in the breath-taking views of the Tamar River at a cooking school & vineyard nestled in the beautiful Eastern Tamar Valley Wine region.

Enjoy a minimum of 3 tastings at each distillery, sit down lunch, and get up close and personal with the traditional cask making process at Transwood Cooperage.
