HIGH SPIR­ITS

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SNAPSHOT -

Tas­ma­nia is home to al­most 40 dis­til­leries pro­duc­ing whisky, gin and vodka. Among them is Hartshorn, whose Sheep’s Whey Vodka was named World’s Best Vodka at this year’s World Vodka Awards. Dis­tiller Ryan Hartshorn lays much of the credit for the flour­ish­ing spir­its scene to Bill Lark from Lark Dis­tillery, for cre­at­ing “a very pos­i­tive and help­ful” in­dus­try based around sup­port and co­op­er­a­tion over com­pe­ti­tion. Many of the Tassie dis­til­leries have stalls at the Sala­manca Mar­ket ev­ery Satur­day, while oth­ers have cel­lar doors and tours avail­able.
