Western Tiers Distillery

It’s about staying true to the purity of the spirit.

Moved by the spirit

With its pristine, rugged beauty, the Great Western Tiers in northern Tasmania is a special place. Above this ancient mountain range is The Land of a Thousand Lakes, a majestic and primeval landscape, a World Heritage Area and the source of the pure, icy cold water that is our key ingredient.

In 2016, sharing a passion for hand-crafted, uncompromising quality, two long-time friends, Mark Kolodziej and Tim Freeman put the wheels in motion and a business was created, Stillsmiths Tasmania. Stillsmiths Tasmania supplies premium distillation equipment to Tasmania’s emerging spirit industry, in the process learning not just what has been done, but what could be done.

Always looking for new opportunities, they had often tinkered with the idea of opening their own distillery. In 2021 the dream has now become reality in the historic village of Westbury, nestled among the rich farmlands at the foot of the majestic Great Western Tiers.

With pristine water sourced from the Highland Lakes, botanicals sourced from the Tiers, and dedication and a commitment to staying true to their passion, Western Tiers Distillery is now producing a range of premium Tasmanian spirits. A triple-distilled, Single Malt Whisky, premium Gin, and for the rebellious at heart, a smooth and uniquely Tasmanian Poitín.
